So if you're going to be inside.. then strappy shoes shouldn't be a prob.
Strappy shoes in the winter are just another reason to pamper your feet with a pedi.

...and I will be strong even when it all goes wrong.

One thing that bothers me in the winter...

People who want to wear open toed shoes...but not outside so they bring two pairs with them. I don't get it! If you toes are going to freeze don't wear those stupid shoes in the dead of winter in Montreal!

Just because its winter doesn't mean you have to cover yourself up completely. When I go out, I'll wear a mini skirt, with a nice top *even a dressy tank top if it looks right* nice long boots and a coat. The reason i don't care to be in tanks and mini skirts is because I have a car! The most I will be outside is....walking from my parking spot to the place I am going. When going to Xmas parties and things of that sort you hope there is valet parking or have someone drop you off in the front.

Whats really annoying? People who do wear the mini skirts and then complain that they are freezing while waiting for a bus to come along. If you are going to be in the cold for long periods of time, I don't recommend bareing all.

Just make sure you dress up for your climate and things of that sort.

What are your thoughts on going out during winter (but mild - 40-60 degrees) wearing:

sleeveless tops?
strappy shoes?
bare legged skirts?

all of the above would be covered with a cute jacket/coat, and of course the party will be warm inside....... I want to be cute and chic, but don't want to look out of season or silly.... I just HATE winter clothing and don't know where to draw the line...

hmm...I will wear a sleeveless top or dress in the winter for a special occasion - i.e. a party or ball...yes, I wore a strappy little lolita style dress (from maxstudio's summer collection) to a ball that happened to be outdoors in the late scottish autumn. I got to the point that I was so numb from the cold, I couldn't feel the cold. strappy shoes just don't look right to me in the winter. I prefer a heavier, more 'solid' type of shoe for winter - like a pair of round toed heels or peep-toes...to me strappy shoes look cold and therefore don't seem very appealing to look at in the winter.
so yeah, only for a special occasion...I am too cold natured to sacrifice my warmth for fashion.

Winter Proportions
I've never started a thread before...

BUT, I am interested in everyone's thoughts regarding winter proportions, especially coats.
How do you wear you winter coats with boots, skirts, trousers, etc.
Anything you always avoid
How you do scarves, hats, gloves

These are some coat proportions I like (from Celebs in Coats thread, London streetstyle thread, style.com (2), Celebs in Coats, style.com)

It seems I prefer a coat-as-dress proportion

I love wearing skirts with my coats. It's so pretty when you can see the skirts hem under the coat. And I can really pull it off because I have the smallest feet ever. I'm almost too cute

In winter usually i wear boots with two stockings, one silky + one warm and knee long skirt made of tweed or other warm material. Don't forget, a well choosen scarf and hat make miracles. ^^

It was snowing this morning and I wasn't wearing enough..

I think a big stylish scarf can do a big difference.

I think there are great clothes for cold weather but I never know what to wear when it rains + it's cold. I don't really like anoraks or anything like that and I always leave my umbrella everywhere...

I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by
madness, starving hysterical naked,
dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn...

i actually don't have any winter clothing... the only item that is actually 'cold weather'-like is a coat.... other than that i'll just layer up my spring/summer/fall clothing

always at least three layers


boots with thick wool socks (I love hiking socks and recommend them to everyone, worth every penny)

and most importantly, cover your head and your neck!

I know exactly how you feel!!!
I love skirt and dresses, and hate chunky, big sweaters and pants. Unfortunately the only way to stay warm is to wear these clothes....bleh

My trick: lots of layers
- skirts with thick tights and knee-high boots;
- dresses with cardigans or wrap tops, or put a long sleeved shirt or turtleneck underneath it;
- long sleeved shirts with feminine (puff sleeved) blazers;
- leather gloves, long scarves.

Warm underwear also helps...
