I love a siege mentality; any sort of major weather is a good excuse to indulge in it! My personal strategy is to plan an outfit around clunky, crazy-looking snow boots; I think they allow for a shorter skirt than might normally be worn. The bigger the boots, the skinnier they make my legs look, or so I believe. But this is not your only option. The opposite-willfully ignoring snow, rain, etc.-is also very chic, like the pregnant, gorgeous socialite I once spied tottering down a snow-clogged street in spindly stilettoed sandals. Or people who wear white jeans when it pours outside: It's like, "My vision of the world is more powerful than ... reality!" I love this sort of attitude. Or, says executive fashion director Alexis Bryan Morgan: "If you want heels, something nice and not rubber, your only real option is patent leather-which can be very cute."
