For my blog I want to do a post about ways to stay warm this fall while still looking fashionable! I want to have more ideas then just my own. If you could give me tips and pictures. I will give everyone credit! Thank you!
Jackets! Sweet blazers look really fashionable and keep you warm!
This will sound so weird..but hang with me. In a lot of places it gets really cold. So cold you can't wear anything but boots/insulated pants/parkas outside. This works for those, but also for other places when the temp gets around 32 and you just want to wear regular clothes and a coat. WEAR LONGJOHNS. Yes, I am suggesting insulated underwear. Here's why, they make cool thin/smooth pro types now that come in a whole range of color, the legs are smooth and tight enough you can still get away with skinny jeans (and if you get black they just look like leggings) you can still wear sheerer tops because they make nude (or go for contrast with red!) and they make all sorts of necklines. End of the story: you look hot, you don't look rumply, and when you go home at the end of the day, your a$$ is not froze.
Also fleece socks (: you can't wear them if your shoe has and peeps, but they work great in booties, and knee boots.
I live in North Dakota right up on the Canadian boarder and it gets epicly cold here! I agree with Katelynn D, there are super sleek skin tight strechy 'longjohns' out there that are literal life savers in our arctic winters, mine are from CuddleDuds. They come in pinks, nude, zebra, black, even shimmer. I also have fur lined over the knee leather boots, sherpa mittens, and sooo many bright scarves!
Best accessory to stay warm? Hats. 70% of your body heat excapes from the top of your head! Try a cute side brain with a knit beanie.
Wierdest thing to keep warm? Vasaline- rub some into your cheeks and onto the tip of your nose(anywhere wind burn threatens) for a thin layer of insulation on your face. It looks dewy and works the same way blubber does for whales and seals.
For warmer cool climates: I love zipup sweatshirts zipped 3/4 of the way with a sweet scarf tucked in & fluffed up

Layer! Layer! Layer! It keeps you warm and looks way cuter than just having one bulky sweater on! Also, over the knee boots are really in this fall, and will keep a larger part of your legs warmer :D
@Opal, I live the Vaseline trick! Will definitely be trying that when I'm outdoors.
I'm going to second the long johns as well!!! I live in NJ so it doesn't get super cold here, but I live my long johns! I buy the light weight silk ones because they don't add bulk. I throw those on, a pair of fleece lined black leggings, and boom! Toasty warm!
Also, wool blend socks. Pricey, but so worth it.
Lol @opal my mama used to grease us up with Vaseline everyday in the winter! It works!
I say cute scarves and a warm but stylish coat for the winter
Also knitwear in obsessed with cool hats & gloves
I'm from northern Canada. It gets colder than cold up there and when it's snowing and the windchill is well below -40 Fahrenheit we still have to go to school, work or whatever. Staying warm starts with your head... Keep your head warm your body stays warm. Second keep your feet warm and your body stays warm. Then your hands. Obviously your torso if it's warm blood will pump to your arms and legs. So I would look into outfits with hats and scarves because you can wear a lot less layers if you have a good hat or scarve on.
Fall is the easiest season to be fashionable, IMO. Chunky scarves, fingerless gloves, knits, boots, blazers, layering, endless possibilities really!

Hooded scarves and blazers never get old!
Long fuzzy knit sweaters are my fave! I bought 5 so far at H&M for this season
I love DIY stuff. T-shirt scarves are something I'm really loving right now. They're a cheap, fun way for a funky scarf using materials that most people have in their closets already. But there's tons of cool DIY winter wear for super cheap! Pintrest is a great place to find ideas or just google!
