Get The Look: Snow Bunny-Inspired Fashion

The amount of snow that hit the Midwest the past two days has been termed Snowpocalypse, Snowmageddon and my favorite, Blizzard of Oz. While I’ve found it difficult to think about fashion when I’m trying to thaw out my car and remove a foot of snow from my driveway, the snow does keep inspiring me with winter fashion looks.

I particularly like the idea of the “snow bunny” look. To me, “snow bunny” conjures up images of pure white ski coats and warm fur lined boots. The term “snow bunny” may be a little silly, but I still love the idea of a clean white outfit during this chilly season. Below are some snow-inspired picks that are, well, cute as a bunny.

Crazy winter hats allow you to make a fool of yourself, while still looking adorable. Check out these cute head toppers:

These adorable hats just make me smile. The pom pom adds a bit of whimsy to this classic white knit hat (pictured left.) It costs $7 from Forever 21. This girly metallic take on a trapper hat (pictured right) is sure to keep your ears warm. It costs $11 from Forever 21.

No snow-inspired outfit is complete without a warm all-white jacket.

Stay warm and cozy with this classic hooded fleece jacket from Columbia (pictured left.) It costs $42. This sleek lightweight jacket from The North Face (pictured right) works great as a layering option on super cold days or as a casual thrown-on for only slightly chilly days. It costs $80.

Shoes are always the best part of any outfit, to me. And these snow boots are no exception.

These short fur lined snow boots (pictured left) are oh-so cute. They cost $60 at Zappos.com. Nothing’s worse on a cold day than wet socks. These space age-style boots (pictured right) are definitely tall enough to keep the snow out. They cost $87 at Zappos.com.

Winter Fashion: Chunky Knit Sweaters

Lately as the weather turns crisp and cold, I’ve wanted to wrap myself in cozy (and stylish!) chunky sweaters. Chunky knit sweaters offer the warmth of a blanket and are versatile enough to dress up or dress down—you can’t say that about a sweatshirt.

Ever since I found a gorgeous wool blend slub sweater by Elena Solano at TJ Maxx I’ve been dreaming about adding other chunky knits to my wardrobe. Below are four chunky sweaters that will keep you snug during chilly winter days.

Layer these short-sleeved sweaters over lightweight long-sleeved shirts. This wheat-colored sweater from ModCloth (pictured left) is perfect weekend wear and costs $48. Pair it with skinny jeans and stylish fall boots.

This heather gray cardigan from Old Navy (pictured right) creates a flattering silhouette with the tie around the waist. This cardigan is $33 and also comes in white and charcoal.

As with all chunky sweaters, these long-sleeved open front sweaters look best when paired with something slim on the bottom.

For a sexy day look, wear this cable neck cardigan from Piperlime (pictured left) with a button-down shirt, skinny jeans and over-the-knee boots. This chunky black cardigan is on sale for $35. It also comes in grey for $60.

Throw this wool blend wrap from Gap over a patterned tunic dress, leggings and heels for a night out. This sweater costs $60.
