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…

One Flannel Shirt, Three Ways To Wear It

In some ways, I have not changed a bit since I was 13 years old. I still listen to Pearl Jam and I still rock the hell out of a flannel shirt. If you were a child of the ’90s, chances are pretty good that your closet was once packed with an array of flannel shirts, a hallmark of the terribly named “grunge” era. But flannels are hardly a relic of the past and you should totally add one to your winter wardrobe. First of all, they are warm and comfy. Secondly, the oversized, shapeless style has been replaced with cuts that flatter your figure, making a well-tailored flannel totally appropriate for all sorts of occasions, from office holiday parties to estate sale shopping. Dammit, I love a flannel, and I think you should love them too. Here are three ways to wear this one from American Eagle Outfitters

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.
