Slap on a beanie and grab friends closest to your apartment and head to the burger bar for crispy curly fries, good beer, bad music, and the occasional fried twinkie. You'll be the cutest one dipping her fries in ranch what with your cozy skirt look. Take one of your bright summer skirts and make it winter appropriate by layering it with a traditional cold-weather hue, like chartreuse or mustard. Add in a suede coat and brown booties to further cement you're not confused over what season it is, and pop on a beanie for good measure. Now, who's buying the second round of drafts? Ugh, Margret never offers. Stinkin' Margret.

You know how you misplaced that file and had zero idea what your boss was going on and on about during that meeting? Well, you hid the frazzlement rather well- I applaud you. But now it's time to shrug on your coat, walk-run to the elevator, and speed dial your best friend, letting him know it's Emergency Manhattan Time. There's nothing a cute bartender and a drink in a fancy glass can't fix. And you're dressed the part what with your casual slash done-up outfit. To achieve the look, bring out the pastels in your winter wardrobe by choosing greys, camels, and blush tones. Pick a plaid skirt in different shades of charcoal, and pair it with an oatmeal colored sweater. Bonus points if the sweater is a bit baggy, to offset the primness of the traditional skirt. Then choose a pair of very modern loafers, pick outerwear in a poppy, almost Spring-like color, and round off the look with a slouchy pom beanie for good measure.

In the mood to just curl up and watch a good movie? Forgo the sweatpants and Netflix cue and instead grab a bottle of cheap wine and head to your coffee shop that's playing classics like Addam's Family and Manhattan. Laugh over Wednesday's death stares as you trade some of your wine with the table next to you for a piece of their tartlet. And what do you wear to an affair like this one? Easy: something fancy but with a casual twist. Give your metallic skirts some air-time by pairing them with cozy and laid-back pieces like tartan sweaters and pompom slippers. To add a touch of polish to the quirky look, add a duster vest in a deep hue to offset the flashiness of the skirt, and a fur hat to give you a touch of winter. Now lean back and try to think of a polite way to ask for a another bite of your neighbor's pastry.

Sometimes it's nice to forgo the fancy restaurants and the crowded dance floors and just go to a movie with your hunnie. Cuddle up to each other- armrest be damned- and whisper verdicts over previews as you eat popcorn by the handful. To ensure that you're extra snuggly for your date, go for a simple but chic look. A jumpsuit is always comfortable, no matter the occasion, and you can add some interest to the piece by pairing it with a white pussybow blouse. Keep the outfit casual by pairing accessories in neutrals- like olive suede booties and oatmeal colored hats- allowing you to let your outerwear be the statement maker. A soft, plaid number always works for any season, and the neutral tones ensure that it'll match with any look you whip together. Now try not to spill the soft drink that's wedged between you and enjoy the show!
