Being fashionable in St. John's in January is a challenge. With broad temperature fluctuations and any type of precipitation possible, one faces a lot of fashion choices before heading out the door. My front closet is so full of coats, boots, hats, etc, that it's always a struggle to pick the right combination for the day!
The people I met downtown over two days in January really know how to put it together despite the wacky and changeable weather. I love that these folks shop local, wear second-hand items, for the most part have avoided the colour black, and are staying warm to boot!
