It is officially really, really cold out. Bitterly cold, you might say.

It’s around this time of year, when the morning train platform starts to feel like its own form of torture, that I usually find myself thinking about the same kinds of things:

Is it going to get colder? Am I going to start hating my commute again? Is this the year I finally crack and buy a puffy winter coat?

I’m dangerously close to conceding on the last one. Sure, I would prefer not to look like a marshmallow, but these freezing temperatures aren’t messing around.

From there, I start making a list of all the cold-weather items I should probably add to my list. And since it has been a while since I blogged, I’m sharing it with you. I’m also hoping to hear your recommendations if you’ve purchased one if these items (or something similar) with great success. Most of my readers are in the Midwest or on the East Coast, so I know y’all have some winter wardrobe advice.

One Response to What to Wear During a New York Winter

    I gave in a bought a puffy, down-filled winter coat a couple of years ago when I was living in a northern Ontario town temporarily….we’re talking -50 celsius with the windchill. Totally worth not freezing your tush off and I still wear it when its a bloody cold Canadian winter. Find a coat that is tailored, like Calvin Klein.
