Stay warm, look hot this winter
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Winter is the time to snuggle up with a furry blanket, drink some hot chocolate and watch holiday movies. It is also the perfect season for fashion.
Although you have to put up those awesome denim shorts, you can pull out all your great winter clothes, like cozy sweaters (even the ugly Christmas one you still keep in the back of the closet just in case you want to win an Ugliest Christmas Sweater contest).
One big fashion this season is oversized sweaters. You can style these with colorful leggings or pants for ultimate comfort. Everyone loves being comfy, so this is perfect combination of coziness and stylishness.
