Outfit ideas for Baton Rouge’s chillier days

We won’t lie; we were secretly hoping this year would bring a repeat of last winter’s snow days. Alas, it’s been a mild winter so far. And not just for Baton Rouge—much of the country saw warmer-than-
average temps in December and January.

There are still likely to be a few chilly days, though. And that, friends, is the best weather to dress for. When it’s blisteringly cold, you have to bundle up so much that you can barely see what’s in front of you. Forget fashion—the priority is being able to feel your fingers.

Now, we can get away with lightweight tops and pants warmed by stylish layering pieces. Think bold jackets with lots of texture, drapey trench coats and easy denim.

Appreciate the lower temps while they last, and have fun getting dressed in the morning. We might not get to make snowmen this year—but hey, maybe we can still wish for a few snow flurries.
