    Winter- Ugh - how cope?

    Brrrr, brrr. Winter is cold. What do you wear to stay in style? A sweater dress, nylons is just too cold at 69F and looks funny with a fleece on top to be comfortable. There has to be a better alternative. This is indoors. Ideas?

    Turn up the heat once in a while!

    My wife is a tiny little thing so the thermostat is on 72F all the time.

    In door temperature is easily controlled. Just throw another log on the fire. For me a sweater dress and nylons would be too warm for indoors. During the winter I wear the same dresses inside as I would wear outside during the summer.

    A wool or tweed skirt suit with a slip and if needed from 15 denier to 30 denier stockings.

    I love dressing in the Winter.
    I do not have the best legs so longer dresses and jeans work well.
    I am blend in better in winter clothing

    67F is 20C, that's shorts weather! In the UK we'd be going bare legged. 60F (15c) would call for normal tights, 50F(10c) thick tights and knee length boots. in fact on my last time out and about it would be around 40F(5c) and that's what I wore when out.

    Try layering. Your body feels the cold more than your legs, but a heavy wool maxi skirt will keep you nice and warm even outside.
    ALWAYS plan for the worst, then you can be pleasantly surprised if something else happens!

    Here in NY state people are wearing shorts and t-shirts when it is 69F.

    Could wear a blazer/jacket with your dress to be warmer, or a turtleneck underneath, maybe wear a long skirt and thicker nylons (30+ den.)

    Well, you can wear panty hose or tights for a starter. Or jeans. Look around you at what women wear and follow their lead.

    I love the winter allows me to wear pantyhose, a slip, spanx, and my wig, it's the summer when I am too hot.

    I love the cooler months.
    Summer is too warm for stockings and now I can wear them daily. As for the rest, I have a nice selection of long and 3/4 sleeve tops, some heavier skirts and my favorite sweaters. I love sweaters and finally get to wear them and be all cozy.
    I don't wear women's clothes, I wear MY clothes !

    Great photo. Now that I am 50 I was wondering what would be appropriate wear. Your photo just gave me some ideas!

    Long sleeve sweaters, dresses, thigh high hose with pantyhose on top. Warmth with nice feeling.

    Suck it up lady! That is not even winter. More like a cool summer evening! And temperature variations allow you to go out and buy more types of feminine clothing! And there is nothing wrong with that!

    I've lived in New England for most of my life. I have a wardrobe for when the thermostat drops. Longer skirts, flannel, corduroy, or other heavier cotton dresses, heavier weight tights, knee high boots, and a wig indoors is kind of like wearing a hat.

    Also, At 69f I am outdoors in a t shirt and shorts.
    I am a vessel of the goddess. Let me express my calling to a feminine life through nurturing love and relatedness.

    69 degrees? It isn't that warm inside my house! Like others, I love this time of year, when I can double up on pantyhose, wear long sleeves, plenty of shapewear and not sweat profusely. There are knitted or woolen dresses and skirts, heavier woven tights, leggings, and very fashionable boots.

    How odd it is. In guy mode only my hands and head are exposed. Nice thick socks, relatively thick shoes, soles. Coat and hat and gloves selected solely for comfort. What?s to get cold?

    I LOVE fall through spring in girl mode. Outside temperatures cool to cold, I am happy. Yes I get cold. Head warm in a stocking cap that is a wig. Torso warm, inside the corset and teddy, except the upper chest V neck. Bottom insulated in pads. Then it starts to get interesting and by mid thigh getting cold. From there to my toes progressively colder.

    And I love the coats. Specially the flared knee length or longer! Yet another piece to assemble a glamorous outfit!

    Green coat: It is 25degf outside and sunny

    White coat: TEN degrees outside! Note the fairies keeping me warm.

    But this is what ladies have to endure when they want to be dolled up. No wonder we see so few in dresses during cold weather. They are wise from experience!

    Warm or cold I’m having

    Such Fun!

    Wear a Brassiere, a Camisole, a full slip and tights orc2 Pantyhose and of course a nice Red Panty. That should keep the blood flowing

    Fortunately doesn't get that cold here in Florida - I still wear romantic lingerie to bed as usual, and if it is a cold night I have a boyfriend to snuggle with.
