What’s to save you from a heavy, precipitation-induced depression after the holiday season has passed? Toss out the optimistic rubbish about New Year’s resolutions or impending chocolate and roses on V-Day. If winter weather allows for anything, it’s the opportunity to dress in layers upon layers of creative, trendsetting gear. Here are four examples of winter finds, to replace the ubiquitously unflattering seasonal garb, that will make you look good (better than a plowed roadway) and feel warm — at this rate, through April or May. All together, let’s sing: “I’m a model, you know what I mean? I’ll do my little turn on the catwalk …”

Try these on for size:

— A plush coat with Scandanavian style

Whimsical PJs (as seen on TV)

Handsome clogs meant for stepping in the slush

— A keep-warm, stay-cool Neptune Records cap
