It's somewhat tough to look chic in NYC these days, what with our eyelashes freezing together and our hair matting to our heads post-hat removal. But, there's a surprisingly easy solution to your woes. Just load on the lipstick—it's one beauty ritual that's Mother Nature-proof.
Yes, a bold lippy is the no-fail way to stay polished in the chill, and we've gone above and beyond to round up three chic outfits to go with the must-try shade. Moody, sophisticated, and a little bit sexy, a deep, bitten burgundy pumps up the wow-factor—no tricks up the (puffer coat) sleeve necessary.
If you think you can't pull it off, we're here to prove you wrong. Sure, these three low-risk, high-impact looks are great on their own, but with the added dimension of a stare-worthy smoocher, we dare you not to turn heads. (Yes, even in spite of that hair.)
To Make Pastels Weather Appropriate
We love breaking a few "rules" and wearing lights and whites during the winter. One way to make this look work, even in this kind of cold, is by balancing the softer colors with your new beauty BFF, the dark lip. It gives the outfit a bit of a kick so your sweet duds aren't too sugary.
