Baby, it’s cold outside

Maybe it’s that Christmas is fast approaching or maybe it’s the dip in temperatures here on the East Coat. Either way, I find I am actually looking forward to wearing a cozy wool coat, some stylish gloves, and earmuffs. Did I really just say that? Earmuffs?

Yes, it’s true. I admit that I have a lifelong addiction to this quirky fashion statement. And, at least lately, I’m not the only one!  Last winter, I truly felt vindicated when the Washington Post ran a great piece about earmuffs by style leaders like J. Crew. Fun and fashionable!

And apparently, the boys agree. In a recent Glamour piece, several guys were asked about the much-maligned piece of headgear. The reactions might surprise you!

Guy #1, 33: “Women in earmuffs — two enthusiastic thumbs up. They are cute and have a sense of humor.”

Guy #2, 28: “Oooh, earmuffs. They conjure up a sexy innocence, like a plaid skirt and knee-high wool socks.”

Guy #3, 25: “Earmuffs have a coziness to them, and whenever I see a girl in earmuffs, I just think ‘adorable.’”

Want to try this trend? Some of the best I’ve found:

Macy’s is a great go-to store for anything trendy. They carry David & Young earmuffs in a fun plaid. On sale now for only $17.99 (were $24.00)

At Bloomingdales, I found Juicy Couture earmuffs in a Buffalo Check. Made of wool and faux fur, they will set you back $38.00

Or splurge on a luxurious cashmere pair in traditional Burberry plaid with shearling lining for $90.
