{What to Wear in Chicago} 3 Outfits for this Weekend and 1 Major Deal!

By  | 


Like a Blue Line train approaching O’hare, snow season in Chicago won’t stop, can’t stop. The white stuff has been coming down since Sunday’s record breaking blizzard. One more Netflix binge and you’re officially a shut-in. It’s time to leave the house. Seriously.

What are you wearing in weather so disrespectful? Here are three outfits to take you from Friday to Sunday in warmth and style.

Bonus: My never worn, new with tags Alexander Wang sweater is listed below for less than a third of the retail cost! Just bought it yesterday and accidently picked the wrong size. It’s perfect for this winter so I’m hosting a quick auction for it on Ebay.

All Black Everything: This look is stuffed with many of my favorites: The Fendi boots, the Canada Goose coat (the warmest parka you’ll ever find), the bunny ear snapback (just, yes!), and, of course, my T by Alexander Wang sweater. The entire outfit is easy to wear on a casual date for Restaurant Week.

The Morale Rooster: The suede boots here are a little hopeful, right? I mean, you don’t want to damage your best boots with salt stains or slip on the ice in heels. To keep the kicks clean, I always wear snow boots during the commute and change shoes when I arrive. Too much? Consider the cost in shoe repair and cleaning you’re saving. It’s worth it! Oh, and this wool rooster skirt is everything. I love the feminine length. A good midi skirt is hard to find.

Vitamin Grey: Rep Chicago with this gorg grey fur beanie by local designer C/Fan. It’s got the cute little animal ears thing going without getting too kitschy.  An all grey look is effortlessly put together and chic. ‘Nuff said.

What do you think? Have these looks inspired you to shop your closet?
