It’s hard to believe but winter is out and spring is in. Didn’t winter get the text message? Regardless, the first official day of spring is here.
While I love spring, I worship winter so it is with sadness I watch the curtain drop on the chilly season which conjures fond memories of the crisp and refreshing touch of wintry air; the stillness that descends after a snow storm, before the shoveling and morning commute swallows it up; and the beauty of trees devoid of all foliage but adorned with jewels of ice and snow. For a snowboarder such as me, the fresh powder days of ripping it on the mountain are at an end, at least until next winter.
Winter has its ups and downs much like any season; we revel in its splendor until we grow tired of the monotony and crave something new. Before we kick winter to the curb and open our doors to spring, let’s reminiscent on the fashion trends that make it possible to simultaneously love and hate winter.
- Wool scarves
- Leather jackets
- Tall boots (you have to trek through the snow somehow)
- Chunky sweaters (because how else are you going to hide the fact that you’ve slacked off on working out)
- Vibrant wool coats
- Large handbags
- Hats (the silly and the colorful because those are more fun, right?)
