Winter Fashion: My Edit

While I'm away enjoying my winter vacation with my family I asked some of my favorite Canadian Fashion Bloggers to share some tips and tricks for staying warm and stylish in the cold weather. I hope you enjoy the inspiration!

I like winter, a bit. Snow is cute until about Christmas, maybe New Years, and then I am ready to be over it. And though I don't live in Winnepeg and I don't have to deal with winter until June (kidding... mostly), I might as well settle into the winter because it'll be here until the end of March.

If you had asked me 15 years ago how to handle the winter cold in a stylish manner, I would have told you to go get yourself a matching scarf, toque and gloves. Preferably pink and preferably with shiny lurex threads knit through... You know the ones. 5 years ago I thought that the only way to beat the cold was to find myself a coat that looked like a black sleeping bag with a furry hood. I wasn't the only one who thought that. Any glimpse outside on a crisp January day on a busy Toronto street would have shown an army of sleeping bags carrying their Tim Hortons cups to work. I had an epiphany two years ago when I found a chic yet incredibly warm jacket for $15 at a thrift store. It turns out you can be warm and stylish. Too bad it took me so long to figure that out...
