{get inspired} snow day style...

the sartorialist
Well, 19 inches of snow fell in Manhattan last night. It really is amazing how fast it piles up - quieting the streets and making even the busiest avenues look picturesque - but how crazy, dirty, wet and wild things look by 9 a.m. Depending on where you live, where you work, and how you're getting there, you really have no idea what kind of conditions you might be up against on a day like this. I've pretty much taken up the mentality that as far as snow day style is concerned, nothing below the knee counts.

For example, today I'm wearing black BDG jeggings, my Gap maroon boyfriend button-down shirt with a cream lace t-shirt layered over it, vintage Missoni scarf, a ballerina topknot and oversize pearl earrings, and my vintage mink coat (Ray Ban aviators to shield my peepers, obviously). However below the knee, I'm donning thick grey ski socks and knee-high black rubber wellington boots. (I'll try to blog this look asap - it's a goodie.) Just because children have the day off from school does not mean you must take the day off from looking chic!

Take a cue from these blog and editorial images I rounded up on how to get your snow-savvy style on:
