Well hello Canadian winter – nice to finally meet you.
This is the first time I get to experience the real thing, and boy I’m glad to call Toronto my home. The weather here is a good introduction to the cold – the temperatures are milder in comparison to other cities in Canada like Winnipeg, Calgary, Montreal, and Ottawa. Sorry folks, didn’t mean to rub it in but my Southeast Asian roots can’t handle the cold just yet. I’m still an “Elsa” in training. Let it go. Let it go.
Wear something that hugs your body to add warmth. If your wearing something fitted you can belt your coat to make a nice silhouette and to make it look in-proportion with everything else. If your layering with a thick sweater, you can leave the coat open so you don’t look like a teddy bear.
For this look, I paired my oversized coat with skinny jeans from Winner’s and Hunter boots that I bought during my first winter visit in Canada almost 2 years ago. These boots are durable and a great match for Toronto’s slushy days. I’m also wearing fleece boot socks for extra warmth on my feet.
