Street Fashion: Stay warm, Columbus

It's been a bitter, cold winter thus far. You may be wondering how to stay warm without sacrificing style. Stick with the classics.

I recommend something knitted, like a fisherman's sweater or a cardigan, to keep warm. For guys, layer with a button-down shirt and a beard to get that Hemingway look. For ladies, try a longer cable-knit cardigan with a belt to accentuate your waist. Remember, wool is your friend. Wool is warmer than cotton, and it breathes better. Wear a wool hat and some wool camp socks under your boots. Also, remember to treat your boots with some leather protector to keep them healthy and your feet dry. Lastly, remember your sunglasses. They'll protect your eyes from the reflection off the snow and add some extra style to your ensemble.
