Add shape when layering with a belt
At temperature of 40 below (-40F, -40C), one either has to wear a down coat or a long thick shearling coat with a blanket on top. I am not particularly a fan of down anoraks as I am allergic to downs. Thus, I prefer using layers and layers, which of course, makes me also look like a dumpling. But at least, a stylish dumpling. I have several of these wraps/blankets that I can wear around this long shearling coat. I usually belt the blanket/wrap to give the outfit some shape as shown above and below.
Layer your winter outfit
Under this outer outfit, I of course, wore long sleeve silk underwear under my indoor outfit. It consist of my tweed skirt, argyle cashmere sweater, and a cashmere cardigan. Double tights and extra socks are a must as well. Taking the indoor outfit picture outside is an extra challenge at these temperatures. I have to admit that taking for the photo, I wore the suede boots, despite I wore my gray pumps at the office. I just could not bear the cold feet taking the photo with the pumps. When wearing pumps the indoor outfit gets a Euro Chic vibe with all the pearl necklaces like Mademoiselle.
