The ii Style Diaries: How not to freeze to death 

cold2-3The fine art of not freezing your ass off while skipping tights and allowing bare skin to be exposed to the bitter cold temps outside is something that has taken me quite some time to nail down.  But after a number of failed attempts I’d say that I’ve finally nailed it. It’s all about investing well to ensure that your feet and head are warm.)

The quintessential pieces from top to bottom: 

The right socks are crucial. 

I will honestly admit that I have more socks than I know what to do with so my opinions here are100% tested and tried and true.  I’m wearing XXX over-the-knee socks that are the perfect combination of chic and functional. They’re actually so great that I don’t mind them peeking out from out of my boots. Wearing snow or rain boots? I swear by XXX. They are the warmest, coziest socks.


Comfy Boots. 

These Matt Berson boots are without a doubt the best investment I’ve ever made. Not only are they insanely comfortable – and trust me for a person who averages 4 miles of walking a day, comfort is key and the stacked heel on these are lifesavers. Better than that though? They are ridiculously warm. Since scooping these up at their chic Tribeca store I’ve worn these boots about 20-times.


Beanie beanie beanie. 

I am a firm believer that if my head is cold the entire rest of my body is done for. Invest wisely here. I bought this black beanie and once I realized it was practically perfect


If nothing else works say a little prayer or better yet, just stay inside. xx
