Red lips by Annika M. from lookbook.nu
Winter Fashion Tip #1: Now’s the time for a little extra drama.
Dramatic makeup that is. If you can’t seem to get out of your heavy black coat and boots all the time, add some weather proof makeup for a look that works both indoors and out. Be bold, go for rich, saturated colors that compliment your skin tone. Winter is the best time for a little more makeup since it won’t melt off of your face and the dull conditions mean you can pull off a bit more color than usual. If you want a little understated drama, a bright, nourishing lipstick can be found at CVS on the cheap— and it will also protect your precious lips from the harsh weather.
For guys who aren’t too into this gendered tip, this is also a great time for grabbing a new pair of sunglasses. Try something different (read: dramatic), like a pair of glasses with an astronautical mirrored gold lens. While it makes some real hip sense to wear these now to protect from snow glare, the same pair will read rather douche-y come springtime.

Yeah, we know we’re annoying—those of us from the south…the west coast, areas where a Nordic wind doesn’t blow through and drop kick you in the face Chuck Norris style. But coming from this here Texan, let me just say, you guys have GOT to cut us some slack. The past few days it has been below 40 in the morning. We shut school down back in the heartland for shit like that. Basically, us warm-blooded people are flipping a shit because it’s only OCTOBER…and IS THAT SNOW????
So, in future situations where you are used to -40 degree temperatures, and you hear someone complain about the fact that it is freezing outside it is because they are in SEVERE PAIN. Just imagine all of us that are used to the warmth as cute little baby pandas and going outside is like stealing our bamboo. Does that make sense to you? It doesn’t have to. Just give us your body warmth…especially if you’re beautiful.
Additionally, it has been reported that this is going to be the coldest winter in New England in the history of ever. EVER. I’m quivering in my Rainbow flippy floppies and long underwear. So…the complaining is not going to stop. In fact, if you see some people frozen on the ground petrified à la Harry Potter style…don’t be surprised. Just learn how to make a fire and bring them back to life. We go to Harvard, we should know how to make fires.
As a personal anecdote, when my school took a pilgrimage in sixth grade to D.C. and it was snowing/cold there were people crying because they couldn’t feel their feet and my friend Forrest and I tried to warm ourselves from the eternal flame of JFK’s grave. That is desperation. Expect. Desperation. From. Us. We’re sorry.
Lastly, advice to those of you freezing, wondering in the words of Texas freshman Coleman Carter, “who pissed the sun off?” I would highly advise investing in a large and absurd fur coat (it can be fake don’t freak PETA) so not only will those of us with a predilection for beaches and sunlight be noticeably balla but we will retain some warmth and attract all the hott local singles from 1-800-BIG-BEARS. Gold chain recommended. Coat responsibly.
