BYE, winter outfit rut.
The Weinstein Company's Lifetime miniseries may be coming to an end, but annoyingly, winter is not. In the middle of our wardrobe's most meh season (my relationship with my head-to-shin puffer is truly love/hate), take a hint from the socialites of 19th-century Russia. Here, the case for glitzy and luxuriously fuzzy finishing touches in freezing weather.
There's a reason fur was de rigor in early 19th century Russia–it's so warm, and it's even more fabulous to look at. Invest. You'll be happy you did.
