Thinking of having a white Christmas this year? We don’t blame you! We could all use a little break from the heat, and a wonderful moment in the snow. But if you’re not used to spending holidays in the snow, the change in temperature and environment can come as a bit of a shock. You’re left to wonder, ‘Did I pack enough warm clothes? Could I be more stylish? How do I pull this off?’
Since we’re all eager to hit a winter wonderland this year, we’ve asked a seasoned holiday traveler for expert selections on cold destinations: None other than Steph Kienle-Gonzalez, of course! As one of this year’s #MetroMostStylish Top 10 ladies, Steph knows that being stylish is just a matter of strategically working with what looks best on you, and what’s practical for the situation. A quick scroll on her Instagram feed, and you know she’s an avid globetrotter.

If you’re prone to chapped lips, chances are it will get worse in the cold climates. Don’t skimp on the skincare and lippies!
Nothing beats curling up under the warm covers as you take a break from the cold. All the better when you have a cozy sleepwear.
Uniqlo 'Heattech' pieces
