3 Ways To Look Hot When It's Cold

It's easy to get caught up (and covered up!) in a boring winter fashion routine, one that leaves you feeling noticeably not-hot. As cozy as a good swaddling might feel, it isn't always the most sartorially sexy way to go. Since we know you (hopefully) plan to do more than curl up on the couch this winter, we're here to help. We've got some ideas for you if you're feeling cold and uninspired, and we see no reason why winter has to keep you hidden. Read on for three ways to look and feel like the fierce babe you are, without totally forgetting that it's like, freezing outside. Revive your fashion fervor with these outfits that will make you feel hot, even when Chicago is anything but.
A fitted sweater dress and warm tights will keep you layered without totally negating your figure. Make sure to step out in a super-high wedge, you'll get the effect of a great pair of pumps without feeling like you could take a tumble on the ice. Add an eye-catching pop of color with a clutch to keep the look fun (this one's got plenty of room for gloves, too!).

Even a casual look can bring the heat. Keep volume on top and a slim pant on bottom for balance, then add a heeled boot for extra polish (flats would be too casual). Oh, and a sultry, dark nail color and hooded scarf make for some snow bunny sensuality.

This look is proof that sexy doesn't require skin (just style-savvy!). A curve-loving maxi dress gets winter wise with a knee-high flat boot.
