Must Haves: 12 Cozy Sweaters To Get You Through Winter

I spend a significant portion of the winter months talking about how cold I am, how much I hate the cold, how I can’t wait for it to be summer, how the cold makes me want to die, how it seems like winter lasts twice as long as the good seasons, and, again, how much I hate the goddamn cold. Winter’s only saving grace is that it’s actually, you know, necessary to go shopping for warm clothes, because it’s not like it would be wise to freeze to death. Really, a winter wardrobe should be government subsidized. If it was, I would totally buy all of these super cute and cuddly sweaters. Maybe I would ever take the complaining down a notch.

Must Haves: 10 Blankets Masquerading As Coats And Capes To Swaddle Yourself In This Winter

As I’ve previously noted, there are few things I am just doing to NEED in order to make it through another bitterly cold New York winter, among them, a BLANKET coat or cape. A blanket coat/cape is just what it sounds like — a large piece of fabric that is ostensibly something you’d have draped over your couch or on your bed, only with two arm holes. Sometimes there may be a belt or a hood or even a scarf attached, but the basic construction is that of a blanket, not a ton of bells and whistles. And who doesn’t want to walk around all winter swaddled like a newborn baby? Here are 10 I’m dreaming about…

10 Items I Need To Buy In Order To Survive My 14th East Coast Winter

So, I decided to stay in New York City for at least another year, after a recent bout of depression made me realize I wasn’t ready to uproot myself just yet. I found a new apartment in Brooklyn that I’m really excited about (moving November 1), my friends and family are thrilled I’m sticking around, and I’m generally feeling a bit better mentally. But there’s just one problem: WINTER IS COMING. I. Hate. Winter. I mean, I like it during the first snow of the season, and I like the initially chilly days of fall, when I can break out my plaid flannels. But winter? Winter is bullshit. It is long. It is cold. It is dark. It threatens to drive me insane every year. But because I’m sort of vain and I really like fashion, one sure way to at least temporarily pull me from the clutches of the winter blues is to shop for new winter clothes. Honestly, if my outfit is ON POINT and I’m feeling high on my own supply, the cold bothers me a lot less. So, for the sake of my own mental health, I have prepared a list of the various items I — and possibly you, if you also suffer from Severe Winter Hatred — need to acquire in order to survive my 14th East Coast winter.

Must Haves: 10 Winter Essentials You Should Buy At An Army-Navy Surplus Store

One of the big things I do to keep my wardrobe minimal is to buy the hardiest, simplest possible clothes and gear I can find whenever I have the occasion to buy something. I’m already gearing up for winter because the upcoming winter in Chicago is supposed to be about as bad as the last winter, which is kind of sob-inducing after the 2013-2014 Endless Winter. I spent the Polar Vortex in wool socks and motorcycle boots. That is not happening again. I will be buying insulated everything, and everything I wear will be able to eat through snow.
