It snowed in New York this past weekend, so of course I had to take advantage and post the obligatory snow outfit. Full disclaimer, I’ve never been a huge fan of snow – I hate getting wet, the gross slushes once it melts, and the annoyance of having to wear snow/rain boots. I am most definitely not made for snowy weather and the typical clothes that come with it (aka puffer jackets). But you can look cute in the snow and stay warm without a puffer jacket, as you can see in my outfit here. It just requires lots of layers and Uniqlo Heattech. What you don’t see under this fabulous yellow coat is a black sweater, and underneath that a layer of Extra Warm Uniqlo Heattech. Under the pants I also have a layer of Uniqlo Heattech tights. Admittedly, all the layers create a problem when I’m indoors because then I’m sweating, but I think it’s a small price to pay for looking cute and avoiding puffer jackets.
For this fun in the snow outfit, I wanted to look bright and happy among a sea of black coats and a dreary Winter day. So I chose my bright yellow wool coat and paired it a lilac purse for contrasting pops of color. I kept warm with a grey and pink pom pom beanie, a thick scarf, and burgundy leather gloves. As I don’t own snow boots, I wore my rain boots to combat the snowy roads. The overall vibe is playful and fun but still comfortable and cozy, proving that you can look cute even in the snow!
While these rain boots do the job of keeping dry in the snow, I was really wishing I had snow boots as the rain boots can get a little slippery on snowy roads. So I’ve been looking at snow boots on the LuvIt App, which is a new shopping app with more than 70+ brands featuring clothes, jewelry, and accessories. What I luv most (see what I did there?) about the app is that the items are from smaller, independent, or up-and-coming brands, so you won’t find a mass retail brand on this app. I like this because I enjoy finding items that are unique and not everyone else has, but smaller brands are not always easily accessible. LuvIt makes it easy to shop these smaller brands and provides free shipping, and the items on the app are more special and fashion-forward compared to what you might find at a mass retailer. You can “luv” items on the app, create wish lists, and customize what products show up in your feed based on your preferences by category, brand, and the people you’re following. The app also gives you cash back for every item you purchase and when someone purchases an item you “luv’d” or shared.
As mentioned, there are a ton of cute snow boots on the LuvIt app, as well as other chic winter essentials such as cozy sweaters, chunky scarves, and wool beanies. I’ve created a collection of my top winter picks on the app, you can check it out by downloading the app here at the iTunes store and following me @layersofchicblog. So if you’re in need of some new winter essentials or just retail therapy in general, definitely download the LuvIt App and give it a try, and let me know what you think in the comments below!
