I just had an epiphany today.
As you may or may not know, Chicago (and much of the midwest and east) was hit with its first major snowstorm this week. I LOVE snow, and I was very excited about the weather change.
However, winter naturally comes with the need to change your wardrobe as well.
One thing I always have trouble with is boots and tucking pants into them. It’s a necessity if you don’t want sopping wet hems, but it doesn’t look that great unless you wear skinny pants.
However, I was searching for things online and came across some great advice.
They recommend tucking pants into socks first and then putting on boots. Pretty logical, right? And I’m sure it’s something everyone already knows. But I was amazed that my pants no longer had that weird, slouchy look.
So, until I have a chance to go out and get some tighter pants to wear with boots, this will be my quick fix for trudging through the snow.
