With recent temperatures in the teens and single digits, dressing accordingly means whatever will keep you from freezing to death as you hustle around the city.

A skirt is not usually a go-to piece for keeping warm, but I am loving this accordion maxi skirt that's been sitting in my closet for a while. It felt like time to take it for a spin, regardless of the temperature.

Fashion can be so prohibitive. There are all these rules about how and when to wear things, but I ignore them all. Fashion is self expression. It should not be used to put you in a box. "Dress accordingly" should mean wearing the pieces you love in whichever way you love.

Now, please don't die in the name of self expression! I definitely took the necessary steps of tights and leggings under my skirt to stay warm. I also incorporated my faux fur vest and red coat for extra warmth, which really complimented the look.

Next time you're trying to figure out what to wear, don't forget to dress accordingly!

Stylishly Yours, Nia
