6 Syracuse Winter Style Essentials

1. Adorable Hat

When the temperature hits below zero degreees, there’s no more fighting it—you need a hat. Sure, nobody likes hat hair, but think of the bright side. Now you can leave your hair unwashed an extra day without anyone noticing. Grunge never felt so good.

2. Cozy Scarf

Along with your hat, you’ll need a handy-dandy scarf. They’re warm, comfy, funky and keep peoples’ eyes away from my dark circles under your eyes after a long night of studying or partying.

3. Mittens

The first day after winter break, I decided to disobey my mother - I know, shocking for a college freshman - and skip on the gloves. Long story short, I ended up paying the price and lost feeling in my fingers for a good half hour after I got back from class. So, lesson one: GET GLOVES. Lesson two? Don’t disobey mom. Ever.

P.S. - These are texting gloves, so you can still scroll through Facebook and group chats while walking back from class.

4. Leather Jacket

Nights out in the frozen tundra are just as fun as nights out in the fall or spring, except for the fact that you’re wandering around in two feet of snow in negative degree weather. But you'll still want to look trendy and feel warm so you don’t catch frostbite, or even worse, hypothermia.  What better accessory to save you style and limbs than a faux leather jacket? You’ll look hot, even in the cold (cheesy but had to do it).

5. Snow Boots

I have been avoiding wearing snow boots since I was five years old. They’re clunky, furry and hard to get on and off. Alas, they have become my lifesaver at school. Snowboots are the only way to save yourself from a dramatic fall down the Dome steps. Although they aren’t the most aesthetically pleasing footwear, having feeling in your toes is worth it.

6. Coffee Tumbler

Early classes and morning snowstorms aren't exactly the perfect pair. Chances are you’ll be loading up on hot coffee to keep you awake and warm during the trek through the snow to class. Treat yourself and purchase a super cute, cheerful thermal mug. Such a helpful accessory.
