Welcome to Minneapolis! It’s no secret that this vibrant city lies North of, well, just about everything. With four diverse seasons, it’s important to know how to dress for peak comfort (and safety) while embracing your personal style.
Much of the country gets excited about an inch or two of snow overnight, but here in Minneapolis there's a perpetual possibility of a foot (or more) most months of the year. But take our word for it, the intense winter here comes with an equally intense love of embracing the colder months. From outdoor dining events and winter sports to holiday festivals and scenery fit for a Hallmark seasonal movie, the months between December and March offer plenty of outings to change up your winter look.
Our advice? Embrace it. The secret? Layers! Fashion changes year after year, but there are a few items that will always be a staple in Minneapolis winters—because warmth and comfort are always in style.
1. Three words: Cover Your Bum (CYB)!
To stay truly comfortable, look for a winter jacket that falls closer to your knees than your hips. Whether you’re standing at a bus stop, waiting for your car to heat up, or just spending a few minutes walking from Point A to Point B, we can guarantee that you will never regret shelling out some money for the right winter coat. There is nothing better than a warm and bulky coat from a trusted brand that keeps your bum safe from the northern winds. The right coat isn’t just a smart purchase, it’s an investment you won't regret! Leave the fitted jackets for slightly warmer weather and snuggle into your lovely new coat (probably with a faux-fur rimmed hood). Pair it with the right scarf and you are now ready to make the sidewalk your catwalk.
