Layered Up

Fashion Over Reason outerwear, FORGear, layering, Washinton square park

It's no secret that I am not a fan of cold weather -- I've expressed my disdain for winter in many past posts. But today, in a positive twist, I am here to toot its horn a little bit. Not the blizzarding, snowglobing, slushsludging kind of weather, but the more, usually clement winters we are lucky to have in New York.

I'm about to tell you about how NYC winters aren't so bad, even though the streets have been covered in snow for the past two weeks, but I assure you, that is not the norm. Not what I am used to anyway. This is my fifth New York winter, and only the second one that has had snow. You know, the kind that actually stays on the ground and piles up. And while we've been experiencing a particularly cold spell recently, the temperatures are usually tolerable and nothing that a little strategic layering can't remedy to.

With that said, New York also offers the privilege (yes, it is entirely a privilege) of being able to wear normal shoes as opposed to oversized galoshes (read: outfit-ruiners). Which means that winterizing your style doesn't take much and isn't that annoying to do. Basically, you just need to get really good at layering. Take what I'm wearing: I've piled things on in a way that looks casual and practical, as well as cool -- I've got on a t-shirt, a sweatshirt, a denim jacket, a leather vest and an oversized scarf. That's a lot of stuff on one half of my body.

And to top things off, what could be better than my own personal, customized, super dope FOR lid? I've got them in a bunch of different colors, so if you want to get yours, click here.
