Winter Fashion is a Myth

Two pairs of socks on. Leggings under slacks. Multiple shirts layers on top of each other, covered by a thick coat, scarf, and hat.

This is a New Jersey winter.

At least for those of us that want to stay warm.

When I was younger, I cared more about looking ‘cool’ than feeling warm. I would walk to the school bus stop on fridged January mornings with a light jacket, no gloves, no hat, no scarf, and wait for the bus.

I was freezing my ass, but at least I looked effortlessly cool. Because when you look cool, you don’t really feel the biting wind and chilling temperatures of a New Jersey winter, right?

Right! You don’t feel it because your body has gone numb.

Winter fashion has got to be a myth because there is no way women can get away with wearing this gorgeous outfits without freezing to death.

You're trying to keep warm with ripped jeans and exposed feet?! Not in these parts!

Okay, at least this one's got gloves and boots, but the wind is totally gonna blow that sweater off you!

Smiling, but your fingers are crying!

Smiling, but your fingers are crying!

It’s not possible to be chic every day during the torturous winter.

This picture pretty much sums it up:
