Syracuse winters are rough. By my spring semester of freshman year, I had realized that those cute flats and leather jackets I liked to wear during New York City winters, was not going to cut it in this town. Like many of us, I was a victim of the leggings phase where I wore leggings and a sweatshirt almost every day. Now as a senior, I think I have become a pro at how to stay warm and still wear my favorite looks.
Here's what I suggest:
Big and puffy coat and hat:
Choose a big/long coat as opposed to a short thin coat because you will soon realize that you will need to keep your whole body warm. Forget about hat hair---here, you will have to wear a hat to avoid your ears from freezing!

Blazers: A blazer can give you that casual look you want for class and the professional look you need for your internship.
Knit sweaters and cardigans: Try them and trust me you will not regret it.They are comfy, good for layering, and sure to keep you warm during that long 3-hour class.

Snow/rain boots: Those cute flats won't last here. Invest in some snow boots because it will snow from November all the way to late March.
