When you hear “winter fashion,” if you’re like me, you think of a million layers and a face that is super dry from the weather. For many of us, it is not the time of year that we feel the most glamorous. Now, I know there are some practical winter beauty tricks, but I’m talking about have a sense of winter style so hot that it melts all that snow on the driveway. Seriously, shoveling is the worst.
Winter is also the time of year that lazy girls really thrive because you can get away with constant lounging. But even the laziest of girls (myself included) want to feel glam even during the cold months of the year. So how can you strike a balance between conquering the cold, looking good AND putting in minimal effort? Here are some tips to help you out (ehhh, kinda):
Icicle BlingIcicles kind of look like giant diamonds, right? Make the most of these chilly decorations by holding them up to the outside of your hat and acting like they are the most glamorous dangling earrings you've ever seen. Since they melt, you can pick out a new pair each day for a truly changing and unique look. Source: Shutterstock.com
Embrace BlueYou've heard about when people are really cold, their fingers or lips might turn blue? Well, you don't actually want that to happen (dangerous!), but why not stick it to winter by showing the season that you can even make blue extremities look amazing? Go bold! Sure, someone may mistake you for a member of the Blue Man Group, but they just don't get that you are in the know about winter fashion. Source: Shutterstock.com
Dazzle EveryoneWearing a ski mask can keep your head super warm, but you know, it also hides basically your whole face. Jazz it up with the sequin treatment! It won't matter that you can't see your earrings under your hat because your whole face will be jeweled! Please appreciate this Photoshop mock-up I have made for you (def let me know if I should open up my own business). Sources: Shutterstock.com (Ski mask and jewels)
An End To Hat HairHat hair is the worst, yeah? Avoid it by never wearing a real hat. Just throw on a wig instead! I mean, a wig may be missing a fleece lining like your favorite hat, but if you're putting it on top of your head, it's basically going to keep you warm just by being another layer, right? Your hair can be a crazy mess up in the wig warmth, but below your impressive tresses will always look styled and perfect. Source: Shutterstock.com
Mittens ManicureStick some press on nails onto your gloves before going outside. It's just like having a regular manicure, but this time, no need to take the gloves off! Full disclosure: not sure how well they'll actually stick to the glove fabric, but hey, you never need to take your gloves off OR paint your own nails. Score!

Just Wear Summer Clothes (Sort Of)Get your favorite summer outfit screen printed onto your coat. My guess is that people won't even notice that you're actually wearing a snowsuit and not a fun summer dress. Sources: Shutterstock.com (Girl and dress)
Warm Up Your SpaceIf someone can just follow you around with a space heater, then you actually can just wear whatever you want without even having to make that extra effort to consider the weather. You can just dress like you would on a warm day. Later, layers - it basically feels like summer around here! Source: Shutterstock.com
Electrify Your WardrobeOh, the space heater wasn't practical? Sigh, fine. Get yourself an electric blanket and work a little Project Runway magic and turn it into a one-of-a-kind, totally wearable garment. We have faith you will be able to drape it into something fashionable. You may though need to stay close to an outlet for the whole day, but at least you'll be stylish, creative AND toasty!
