Fashion Friday: Accessories for the Polar Vortex

The Polar Vortex is the new normal for New York City weather. We have gathered ideas for winter weather gear that will allow women in these unusually frigid days to be warm, ‘cuz, baby, it’s cold outside!  Ice on the roads, sidewalks, and outdoor stairs can be particularly hazardous, so boots with both increased warmth and soles that have been engineered to decrease slipping are a necessity. Many of us have fashionable boots in our winter closets, but now we need to shop for safety. Look for boots with thick rubber soles to prevent heat loss.

Hats and winter scarves provide protection from wind chill and temperature loss. Look for wider scarves that can wrap around your neck and face to avoid forming nose icicles! Cashmere is light and sturdy, and, when used as lining in gloves and other accessories, it’s  insulating. Gloves that are lined are essential. And, of course, we found a muff—and yes, we know it is made of fur!

    Great cold weather suggestions for staying warm and reducing the risk of frostbite. This winter in Minnesota we’ve had wind chills that reached 50 degrees below zero. Many people have been hospitalized for frostbite and several lost fingers and toes as a result of exposure. So bundle up!
