Winter explorations in nature leave no question: winter has its own beauty. That’s easy to forget when 99% of the time I’m in my knee-length down jacket and beat-up gray winter boots, begging the forecast to peak above 20.

While utility trumps all in unforgiving climates, there are some easy ways to enliven your winter wear. Read on to find out.

A fun coat isn’t a replacement for a really warm parka, but no one said you can’t have a bonus coat (or several).

Boom, on your way to cute winter style.

  1. […] I was inspired to share this look today for a couple of reasons. First is that it’s the time of year I need to remember how to dress for fall. Like, I’ve actually forgotten. Please send help and something pumpkin spice flavored to jog my memory. Second is that today is Felt Hat day! I’ve been getting a lot of cross-seasonal use out of this felt hat that I first featured as part of a snowy winter ensemble. […]
