Winter cold: does your style suffer?

I have been loving this winter a lot. The combination of snow, a bit of frost and a lot of sunshine has been adding a bit of natural Prozac to my brain.

However, I have been quite lazy on the style-front lately. I leave my dresses in the closet, because even the warmest tights aren't as warm as my trustworthy jeans. I pile on the warmest sweaters and vests, instead of wearing my cute little tuxedo jackets. And I will not get started about my footwear...I have been living in my motorcycle boots with fur inside for weeks.



So, my dear reader. I was wondering: how do you describe your winter philosophy towards being stylish? Is your style suffering for winter confort, or do you brave all in order to look fashionable?

Dear Birkie,

I have been a lazy sod on the style front thus far this winter. It has been colder than normal and as I despise such climes I have been living in my boots, jeans and jumpers - Blah!!

I am a dress and skirt fan and would love to brave the extremes in the name of glamness but I am a coward!!!

ROLL ON SPRING!!!!

u know what, i wear a wool-blend camisole underneath my sweaters so i dun need to bulk up. usually in fall i'd just get a couple of new sweaters for the next season, then combine that with a few pairs of really nice jeans... with a good goose down jacket u're all set to go... but i'm thinking the dutch winter is much harsher, right?

Great Lingerie! I always wear bright colours (I wear a lot of black clothes, but I do not own any black undies!) in matching/coordinating sets.

I also rely on my Max Mara camel coat and a nice designer scarf/pashmina (my current one is from Hermes, via British Airways duty free).

For footwear, I rely on my wool-lined Ecco ankle boots.

Brrrr!
