Ohhh, It’s that time of the year when Florida decides to get hit with random cold fronts. At first it’s all fun and games. BUT when the cold fronts decide to last a whole week, that’s the issue. WHAT ARE WE TO WEAR?! We’ve already experienced one, and now to tackle another one. Well, fear not mis amigas y amigos, I got you covered with a quick guideline on how to handle very bi-polar weather changes. But first, I leave you with this classic meme…
Personally, I have a couple of staple pieces that I run to when the weather hits 60 degrees (yea, i know dramatic). But nonetheless, it gets a little tricky when you’re use to sunshine and the sun-kissed heat. The hardest part about living in warm weather climate is that when it gets cold, you don’t have much you can throw on, and the problematic part is when you wake up to cool weather only to be hit with blistering heat in the afternoon. There is no in between. So with that being said, this one goes out to all my Floridians, who still have no idea what a “real winter” entails and need quick tips on how to stay warm during these frigid cold days.
Let’s start with the basics, you are going to need layers. They’re easy to add-on and most importantly, easy to take off when it starts sizzling in the afternoons. Here are three basic pieces that can aid you in staying warm these cold, brutal “Florida” days.
Your basis should be: outerwear.
- A jean jacket is something that you probably have in your closet already. An easy pairing with a sweater and you’re all set!
- A light coat for those who are really feeling the burrr, grab a light cotton coat and pair it with a sweater and trust me you’ll be just fine, or even grab a duster, one of my go to’s.
- Lastly, a leather jacket would be perfect to throw on and create an edgy vibe. With so many colors to now choose from, you can now choose other colors than black.
Next… a scarf. Uhm hello, one of the easiest things to throw on when you want to keep warm and super easy to store when you no longer have use for it. There are tons of scarfs to choose from, cowl neck, infinity, and there are also many ways to wear them. With so many variety to choose from its easy to create a minimal outfit and tie it all in with the help of a patterned scarf.
Don’t be afraid to grab a novelty scarf with a fun pattern either!
Followed with a beanie, or a hat! A fun way to accessorize your outfits, and adds a finishing touch. From wool hats, to newsboy caps, and the occasional beret.
Here’s a little something I threw on for a cold, rainy trip to IKEA!
Hope these mini guidelines helps you out the next time you’re facing a “winter” emergency, and yes I’m using the term winter really loosely.
From cold to hot, layering these three basic pieces is a must to keep enjoy the weather at both temperatures. So stay warm,stay cozy and enjoy all the hot choclate while you can!
