I have clothing for all seasons. For the winter, I have a lot of tights that I can wear, some of them colored tights. I have some longer skirts that I can wear in the winter season. I have a short winter dress, a floor length high neck long sleeve black velvet dress, and a sweater dress (I don’t wear it too often because it needs to be dry cleaned). I have some faux cashmere sweaters, and I can wear some of my guy turtleneck or red velvet top with the women’s clothes. I also have a number of feminine long sleeve tops that I can wear.
For outerwear, I got a red woolen trench coat from Goodwill a number of years ago for something like $14.00, a real steal given that it is in excellent condition. With the deep V neck of the coat, it generally requires a scarf. I also have a tan pea coat with a diagonal zipper. I bought a pair of red and another pair of black gloves that slim my hands. I bought a pair of ski gloves, but it didn’t really stand up to shoveling. I do have some scarves that I can wear as well. I use these two coats when I want to go out dressed nice.
Last year I bought a maxi (ankle length) hooded parka. With that, I can take walks in the wintertime while wearing a skirt and no one can tell if I’m wearing leggings or tights. On days that are a bit warmer, I have a lightweight waist length parka.
I started out with two high heel boots (about 4″), one in black and one in brown. Later I bought some flat boots (again a black and a brown) which I can wear in the snow or in rainy weather. I have worn the high heel boots to work a couple of times since most of the heel is covered by my pant leg. And I recently got a pair of grey suede-like (fabric, not leather) boots from a friend who was getting rid of them.
I also just got a long sleeve cowl neck top that has cut-outs so that it can be put over the ears and serve as a face mask. With luck, that will only need to be used one season. But it can also be used as face covering on windy days.
I like the colder weather, as long as the wind isn’t biting cold.
