Living where it does snow makes it challenging to stay warm and fabulous. Typically it is tights and a cardigan with my darker colored dresses or pencil skirts. Can anyone offer any other cold weather solutions? Looking for office appropriate suggestions.

I would love some advice here, too!

I come from the other side of the globe, but am visiting New York this winter. Where I live, it gets chilly (highs of 50F), but I need to know - how the heck does one stay warm where it snows?! I've heard all the buildings are heated, but surely people sometimes have to walk a few blocks to go to the shops, laundry, etc. So what on earth do people do?! I've found a gorgeous vintage-inspired coat on Modcloth, but I don't think it's going to cut it :/ Am I doomed to freeze?

Oh WOW that coat is beautiful! I've actually been looking for a vintage style trench coat to wear around town in the fall and early winter. It might take some time to warm to that colour but I DEFINITELY think that I'm in love :)

So I found this forum the other day on a different pin up site (hope its okay to post the link here). There is alot of info but its pretty helpful: http://www.pinuplifestyle.com/forum/topics/winter-clothes 

Hope this helps all you winter birds!

Those gloves are just GORGEOUS! Especially the ones in the Van Raalte ad above the Marilyn pictures. Does anyone know where you can still buy gloves like that?

In a perfect world I'd learn how to make them myself just to sell them through PUG :)

I think I have seen some cute ones on modcloth. Not sure how warm they really are...I think pug had some at one point.

I'm starting to experience my very first canadian winter so I'm in need of advice too !It's already 30°F here in Montreal...

I'd go with the layering/onion trend too.. it's really does help keep the body warm & allows you to remove some of the layers when you are inside but still not be in your undies LOL !

last year I bought special "Heat" teeshirts, both short & long sleeve, that are meant to be light but warmer than normal tees with a Heat Techology. Not very "retro" but it's simple & basic enough to wear under cute sweater/cardigans/shirts etc...

Ok my adive is :

-tank top or slip if you're wearing a dress !
-long sleeve tee shirt (just a basic one V neck for example...)
-blouse (just a pretty shirt to cover your top, secretary blouse with a bow for example !)
-Cardigan !(get one that isn't too long, about waist lenght is good & with a rather thick & cozy fabric)

I NEVER wear trousers... I hate 'em... & I'm positive I can spend the entire winter without wearing one. I do wear leggings, with a pretty dress on top of it.
I'd say wool or opaque tights with a pencil skirt for example will look & feel good.

A very warm hat or berret, cute gloves & a nice scarf ! great accessories that can add glamour !

Hum... velvet dresses ! I've seen some gorgeous retro one ! They're so warm & glamourous !

Oh I feel it's very important to have a LONG COAT ! Knee lenght is good...mid calf is better :).

1 last but not least... SHOES ! I was reluctent at first because they are expensive but I ordered some Miss L fire ones which I cannot wait to get !!! the black Havanas... they are so 40s & just plain ravishing !

Well Hope this helps doll !

There you go ! today's winter outfit ! it was 30°F in Montreal today ! ^_^ I'm not wearing a coat because I'm on my little balcony in the sun !!! :D

I'm wearing a vintage pleated plaid skirt...black wool tights...a long sleeve tee shirt with a rather thick white cardigan on top & last but not least my fresh & new Miss L Fire shoes !!! 

Despite the price I highly recommend those ! Awesome quality !

Anyway this is more or less my everyday look for winter ^_^ (sometimes pencil skirts...different sweaters but you get the general idea )
