Heading To Reykjavik? What To Wear So You Won't Freeze Or Look Bad

I just booked a trip to Reykjavik. I know, sounds crazy, right? In fact, there's plenty to do and see in Iceland in the winter, but…what will I wear? This trip has brought up some real wardrobe issues. For one, it's gonna be cold there–real cold–but since I'm traveling with a new boyfriend, I need to look good. And, my clothing needs to be supremely comfortable since we'll be walking around all day. So how do I plan to stay warm, cute, and cozy? Hint: it's all about the outerwear.

On a trip you can only bring one coat, so make sure it's one that goes with everything in your suitcase. A dark, solid color like chocolate or black is not only sophisticated but also infinitely matchable. This Tommy Hilfiger Down Anorak Jacket ($129.50, was $185) has a flattering cut that keeps it out of the fat puffer category.

Since I'm going with simple on the jacket front, I want to complement the outfit with something eye-catching, and a little funky. These fabulous and affordable Minnetonka Moccasin boots ($80) are perfect for exploring both Iceland's frozen frontier and Reykjavik's stylish streets. All Minnetonkas come with a padded insole for comfort, and the fact that they're lace-up means I can sport them over jeans or with a dress and tights.

This Striped Felix Rey Scarf ($75, was $150) breaks the monotony of the black jacket/black hood–and it's made of uber-soft cashmere. Or I could brighten up the ensemble with a Ruffle Scarf from the Gap ($24.95).

Looking cute on snowy streets may be all about outerwear, but staying warm out there requires smart layering. I eschew the awkward long john in favor of a snug-fitting cotton tank from Bella ($15). It will keep my core nice and warm, and when I finally settle into a toasty restaurant for dinner and strip off all those extra layers, I won't end up having to dine in skiwear.

These 66 Degrees North Long Johns ($90) are made of 100% merino wool, meaning they're incredibly warm and incredibly soft at the same time. The company is Icelandic, so I trust them to know about layering against the bitter cold.
