I've been the girl in the frumpy Winter outfit seeking refuge in the warm coffee shop one too many times. There I am, wearing leggings, a stained hoodie, furry coat, and beanie, all because my outfit had to revolve around a pair of sneakers. Was I taking the easy way out? Avoiding my love for fashion and prowess for creating a really fun look all because I was tired? "Sneakers it is," I probably thought as I rolled out of bed and caught glimpse of the flurries outside my window.
We all love sneakers, and we all want to wear them year-round because they're comfortable. But even when it's cold, your sneakers are cool! Your sneakers still warrant a stylish look. I'm here to prove to you that it is possible to feel that sense of ease and effortless, even in the most frigid temperatures. Yes, you can still walk out the door in a really cute outfit, even if you're not wearing those striking, knee-high leather boots. If you wake up and your feet tell you they need a break from heels, girl listen.
Grab your favourite sneaks, whether they're Chuck Taylors or Nikes, and bundle up according to any of the great styling methods below. I'm proud to present you with some of my favourite layering tips that I like to keep in mind when I'm feeling a more casual day in the city. For even more inspiration and outfit ideas, click here.
