The season of cozy sweaters is upon us! Temperatures are going down to the low 30s in NYC this weekend, so now is a good time to think about your strategy for staying warm.
I grew up in Northern New York State (Rochester, to be exact), where winters are long and cold and warm clothes are a must. If you experienced last winter in New York City, you know what every winter in Rochester is like. No joke. I actually love cold weather and winter as a result, even though I get cold really easily. If it’s below 65 degrees, I’m essentially shivering and cold. Truthfully, comfortable for me is in the 80s, so I learned early in life that when it’s cold, dressing warmly is a must. I do not play when I’m cold – I have a serious collection of coats, hats, gloves, scarves, thick hiking socks, and really warm sweaters. Not the thin or short sleeved type, but twenty heavy, thick, warm and cozy sweaters (I counted). And they work – they keep me cozy in the 80s when room temperature is in the 70s and when it’s anywhere from 60 to 0 degrees outside (as it was quite a bit last winter).
So, because 20 sweaters are not nearly enough, and because it’s always good to edit and update, I’ve rounded up a slideshow of cozy sweater inspiration images, including all of my picks for thick, warm, practical sweaters that also happen to be really stylish. There are two weekend sale announcements and then a few Qs I’d love for you to A (questions I’d love for you to answer).

What is your strategy for staying warm over the winter? Do you sleep in a hat and wear finger-less gloves at your desk, like I do? Are you partial to turtlenecks or chunky knits? Let me know!
