According to George Kotsiopoulos, winter dressing is all about one thing:
I live by this concept. In Pittsburgh, where temperatures are literally below freezing during winter months, the only way to maintain a chic ensemble is by investing in some great outerwear. In fact, I just had a conversation with my lovely friend Terra, blogger behind Love Nothing More, about how at this point in our lives, we’re finally understanding the value in these investments. Winter boots and coats where we live just make sense.
Find a really great tailored coat, and accessorize with some less expensive pieces, like a faux fur snood or faux leather gloves. Not only are you appropriately layered for the cold temperatures, but you still look professional, classic and effortlessly chic.
