This Chicago winter has been unlike any other winters we have had to deal with before. One minute it is beautiful outside and the next minute I am wishing I had my Hunter boots on to walk through the rain or snow. As a commuter, the crazy weather changes can be a bit of a nuisance because I cannot do quick outfit changes whenever I want; life isn’t a Britney Spears concert (too bad, though)!
The best fashionable solution to this dilemma is to love to layer. It is best to have items on for both climates so you can adjust to the weather accordingly. During the winter, having at least three layers under your jacket will keep you warm and leave you with options when that Chicago weather changes on you. These layers should essentially be a tank top, T-shirt and a sweater that will keep you toasty. It is also a great idea to wear a scarf because it can be taken off easily when you’re too hot.
This Fashionista was on her way to the Metra when I spotted her look with a ton of layers. She has a total of four layers on top: a tank top, a T-shirt, a warm sweater and a cargo jacket. Let’s also not forget her trendy circle scarf, an accessory perfect for layering. The weather drastically got warmer in the afternoon, so she conveniently took off her jacket. Since she had on enough layers underneath, she was neither too warm nor too cold. This is why layering is the perfect solution for this Chicago winter. This Fashionista is a layering expert!
