But better late than never!
Wisconsin is known for its long, hard winters. Scarves, hats, mittens and thick coats are necessities; sometimes, you can be bundled up well into April.
Since you spend so much time in this thick layers, why not use them to make a statement?
Step away from the basic black coat!
Dig out those Nordic patterns!
Accessorize with a brightly colored scarf!
Winter is dull enough as it is. No need to make it worse by pulling on something ho-hum. If you need to be battling the elements, best put your best foot forward.
I fully embraced this philosophy in 2010, when I bought this yellow coat on eBay. It doesn't fail to make me smile, and feel sunshiny on the bleakest days.
