Winter Styles To Survive And Thrive The Cold
Miranda McGovern

Winter can be brutal, but the good news is that your style doesn't have to freeze along with it. Use the cold weather to your advantage and embrace your personal style with layers. Protect your skin from the snow and freezing temperatures with the right style choices. Here are some ideas to stay comfortable and cozy this winter.

Starting at the bottom.

Boots: These boots were made for walking: short, tall, furry, laces, or button up. Wear materials such as leather, suede, and cotton, there are so many options. For brand lovers, Uggs, Sorel and Hunter boots offer some great choices. Get boots that are waterproof for the snow, easy to walk in, and that tie your overall look together.

Leggings: The fight of whether leggings are pants or not is long gone, and now the options for leggings are numerous. I suggest following the new trends of fleece or velvet leggings. These will keep you extra warm in the cold. Victoria's Secret has many options along with Express. Don't splurge on leggings though, there are always affordable options.

Sweaters: A good sweater feels like a warm hug. The great news about sweaters is the versatility between thick, tight, thin, bulky, short or long. You can get them in all shapes and sizes. My favorite style is going for bright bold colors, but for those less adventurous there are still many colors. Turtlenecks are surprisingly in this year as well. Go for something you love at your favorite store. I personally suggest checking out H&M, Maurice's, and Target for some great options.

Coats: I think of a coat as armor to the harsh reality of winter. A coat covers up your fashion for the day, but that doesn't mean it can't be stylish itself. I recommend choosing a coat that is warm and fashionable. It will make you happy when you wear it and feel like your best self. Luckily today's coats are gorgeous and so unique to your personal tastes. Check out the coat rack at Macy's for some affordable designer brands.

Scarves: Is it really winter if you're not wearing a scarf? They are stylish, warm, and beautiful pieces of fabric that can easily add dimension to any fashion look. Infinity scarves are the easiest to wear but there are still many other styles. Be fun with bright, contrasting colors or classic with plaid. Experiment with tying them different ways to make it look extra unique.

Use this easy style guide to survive your way through winter. Boots, sweaters, coats, and scarves are the key to staying warm and fabulous. Also don't be afraid to mix darks with lights, neutrals with patterns, and eye-popping colors to a create an outfit that you love.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
