With the sun shining in Colorado, blizzard season seems like a distant memory. The weather these days has been very reliable but nevertheless, one cannot count out the snowy days that are surely ahead. Snow brings the need to stay warm with chilly temperatures, but fear not—there is always a way to stay stylish while enduring a blizzard.
One staple of the fashionable winter weather goer includes a pair of SOREL boots. For women, Joan of Arctic Premium Boots are the way to go when trekking through the freezing snow due to a higher boot shaft. Or, one can find the Caribou Boot for a shorter boot shaft for stylish shoes perfectly suited to a night out in the chilly weather. For men SOREL carries a wool lined Caribou Boot as well for the deep snow. If one is looking for a semi-warm stylish boot for the cold the 1964 Premium T CVS Boot is the way to go. Both of these types of boots go well with jeans tucked into the boot and any type of sweater to keep your upper body warm as well.

Speaking of sweaters – the best to find for the snowy days are loose fitted, comfortable, and of course warm. For men, the Fast Trek II ½ Zip Fleece is a very fashionable sweater to throw over a loose shirt, or even simply wear by itself. For women the PGF Harborside Fleece Pullover by Columbia is available in five colors for every girl. This fleece pullover is stylish with multiple colors to choose from, accessible with a chest pocket, and keeps one warm during the snowy days. Just as with the men’s pullover, this jacket can be worn over and under anything. These pullover sweaters are perfect for the winter storms because they are not bulky, making it easy to fit under a heavier snow jacket as well as thick enough to be worn on its own.
