Aussies First Winter, New York

Emily has been working with me for a few months. It’s been fun to watch her preparing for her first real Winter. Well, trying to prepare. Everyday during this past week seems to deepen her shock at just how cold it gets in Manhattan.

It has been equally fun to watch her layer and layer the few appropriate clothes she did bring with her in a beautiful attempt at freeze relief.

    Why do I get the feeling this woman has no gloves? She needs that and a scarf! Some ill-prepared Aussie. Otherwise, beautiful.

    Oooh, this brings back memories of my first North-American winter in the late 90's. I was a high-school grad straight out of the boat from sunny Brazil. I bought a pair of duck boots to commute between my college campuses in North Jersey and people made fun of me to no end. My nose and lips were bone-dry and cracking most the time. I was always cold and fatigued, as my body was working harder to maintain its normal temperature. I loved the geography and the people of the U.S., but hated the weather. Nowadays, I enjoy the crisp, soothing cool air as well as the opportunity to experiment with a wide variety of clothes. In fact, I think I've adjusted a little too much, because last time I was in Rio, I actually fainted in a public bus due to the heat. Go figure. Anyway, good luck to the girl in the picture! I'm sure she'll do very well.

    Looks cute, but won't last unless she gets gloves, hat and warm boots. Surely as she is from Australia she should be wearing Uggs……or are they only for export. Buy her one of those really cute furry hats with ear flaps.

    As I found last February – it was 35C when I left Melbourne, and -8C when I arrived in DC – you can't really prepare for such a shock, you just need to go shopping real quick! (Oh – and pack some longjohns to get started!)

    Emily should buy some knit silk underwear – tees, camisoles, and even "long johns" to layer under her clothes. They take little space and keep the warm air close to the skin – particularly if a light wool layer is over top. Even a silk blouse under a wool sweater will help her stay warm.

    Silk is cool in the summer, too, so it is an all-season fabric.

    I love her outfit, but seriously how cold could it really get in Manhattan. Try braving a Canadian winter where -25°C and snow up to your waist is just the average.

    under it's grey exterior..new york has a huge heart.
    the heart of the city will warm you.
    there are always a few days in january can get brutally bitter cold.
    think in terms of 'two'..
    two scarves.
    two sweaters.
    gloves inside of mittens.
    double socks.
    moisturiser by the tubfull…for your skin and hair.
    keep yourself hydrated..the winters are so dry.
    the best thing about all of it..you can always nip into a store and thaw out as you walk.

    She's the only person I've ever seen look good in one of those long parkas! :) Great layering, too, and the red actually _looks_ warm..

    She also seems to have picked up one trademark of true cold-climate dwellers (or at least the hardy New Englanders I grew up among): Unless you're on the verge of hypothermia, the coat stays unfastened!

    I love the jacket with the fur hood. I have a similar one just with a belt. And the splash of red is great. On the lips, the shirt and especially the red sock you see a bit over the boots.
    It is really difficult to find something warm enough but at the same time good looking in this times. Here in Germany it is very very cold with twenty to thirty centimeters of snow.
    I have layer over layer because when you wear a huge pullover you are warm enough outside but literally melt inside…

    You're so lucky it's so warm there in Nyc! In Finland it has been around -15/5F some days. That's cold. Dressing is interesting, gotta think about layering coats, using big scarfs and mittens, furry hats…it's fun actually. Photographing outside is nearly impossible though.

    As an Australian experiencing her first Parisian winter in a while; I can completely relate to her pain. My body has gone into some sort of toxic shock as northern Europe has its coldest autumn in decades [and winter really hasn't yet began!!].

    my favorite part is the color story of the red, accented by the red lipstick! as a new yorker, you have to balance style with WARMTH, because in the end, the new york winter is brutal!

    this is so, So rad. im ripping it off, and im a dude! double plaid. the ol' flannelette shirt/s. im an aussie too, so i got plenty of those winter warmers. its our uniform.
    i saw in a documentory on B-boys in NYC back in the 70's, how they matched socks with belts, shoe-laces with belts, belts with kangols caps, socks with layers under your jacket in winter… everything in this, is just pure gold.
