Just because it's time to bundle up—because the weather is threatening to be frightful—doesn't mean you have to look like a shtunk while you're schlepping about downtown, in Fondren, the Renaissance or wherever you do your schlepping throughout your day.
In fact, you can look fabulous.
Get rid of that tattered black coat you've had for years, and replace it with something fun, flirty or unexpected. Those gloves with the pin-sized holes at the fingertips you think no one sees ... we see them. Your footwear, even the socks you wear with your boots, doesn't have to be strictly practical. Utilitarian can be cute, too. Trust us.
And yes, your mother was right: You lose most of your heat through your head, so cover it. But make sure it's a piece that makes others' heads turn.
