How to Look Good When it’s Freezing Outside

Thank you Gallery for sponsoring this post. Stay stylish and cozy in a new Gallery jacket this winter!

Brrr! I woke up to 18 degrees today in St. Louis. It’s officially that part of Fall that’s no longer cool. Layers aren’t just fun and stylish options anymore, they are necessary. While it’s certainly challenging to maintain your style when outside feels like an icebox, it’s not impossible. Here’s what I do.

1. Choose a stunning and warm coat

I’ve actually been excited about the first serious St. Louis freeze because I was ready for it with my new quilted jacket (get it for only $99 here). This jacket packs some serious style and more importantly, some serious warmth. It’s by Gallery, a premium outerwear manufacturer producing classically tailored, timeless pieces since 1965.

This fabulous quilted jacket (find out more here) has a fitted silhouette, flannel sleeves, and the right amount of insulation to ward off the chills. Additional details like corduroy piping on the pockets and high-shine hardware just boast the superior quality that Gallery is known for. My jacket is made so well that I envision being able to wear it for many years.

2. Wrap a scarf around it.

Scarves are the perfect cold-weather accessories to show off your style sensibilities. I love modern, graphic prints and bold colors, so all my scarves embody those qualities.

3. Play with warm textures.

From velvet to flannel to corduroy, in addition to being warm, cold-weather fabrics offer unique opportunities to mix and match. My Gallery quilted jacket (shop it here) did a lot of the styling work for me with its striking mixed media design.

To step it up a notch, I paired my velvet leggings (seen before here) with the jacket. Y’all know I love to mix and match. Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean that has to stop.

4. Step out in fabulous boots

You know the expression, “the shoes make the outfit,” right? That doesn’t change just because it’s cold. A great pair of boots can make an outfit. I always reach for tall boots when it’s as cold as it is today.
