I'm so crap at this,I usually sacrifice warmth to look nice.
But the one thing I always wear is a scarf,I have a lovely long pea green one.

^ I love those, I try to find one every winter, but I've never found a perfect one. I should just make one, but I don't really have the time...

marcj are you going to be a doctor when you grow up ? . . . . .
down jackts are not necessary . . i've survived w/out one
& i live in a fairly cold place + have super bad circulation {always cold hands + feet}
just wear lots of layers + a 100% WOOL coat . . .
always works for me !

* chris
how the hell was it marked down to 9.99 !
& why does tht never happen to me . . .

Hmm I guess I'd say wear layers too! It can get REALLY cold here in the winter (-45C if its really really cold and with the windchill factor... I think we even reached -50C with that factor once.. COLD I TELL YOU ) so your best bet is to wear layers of warm clothes. Also, quality boots that will keep your feet warm. And obviously, mittens, scarf and a hat.

Like I said before in a similar thread, it gets cold where I live: down to about -15° F/-25° C (sometimes even colder). A good wool coat with a warm sweater underneath is enough if you only walk to and from the subway, sort of, but if you're going to spend a lot of time outside you need to be practical and comfortable first...

copenhagen gets cold but i have managed without a down jacket. keeping your head warm is really important, although i hate hat-hair. Sometimes I just wear fur ear-muffs.

Also, I love shearling/sheepskin lined boots. But not Uggs - I have found cool vintage sheepskin boots on ebay instead. Sheepskin mittens are also wicked. Unlined leather just doesn't do it.

One thing I hate, but I do when its really cold, is tights under jeans. It just feels . . . wrong.

it's FREEZING here and apparently we're in for a shockingly cold winter...I'm afraid I've fallen into a 'cold slump'. I'm incredibly prone to the cold and once I get a chill I can't get warm, so I've been desperate to keep warm to the point that lately I've just been gratuitously piling on layers without paying much attention to how good it looks. today I did make an effort to get out of the slump, but it really is so hard and I still wasn't warm enough. I keep feeling this need to shop and buy more things to layer with, but even after living in this climate for 3 1/2 years, I still don't feel like I've got the knack of dressing for it.

I'm so glad summer is nearly here!!

In winter to uni I usually wear jeans, sweaters, anything knitted and flats to protect my poor feet. I love wearing fitted long sleeved tops and tights or stockings under vintage dress although, my mum says I look like a crazy woman .

If it gets really, really cold I'll throw my trusty trench on top but luckily it doesn't get as cold here as it does in Europe otherwise I'd be a blueberry!!
