With the winter months in full swing, the icy temperature has certainly taken its toll on the Danforth. Arctic winds and frozen roads have left our town draped in snow. As the temperature plummets, it seems our fashion does, too. Layers and layers of bulky knits and puffer coats do not leave any room to show off your style. So, how does one pull off a warm outfit without sacrificing fashion? I bundled up and hit the Avenue in search of smart and stylish people who are braving the elements in this season’s hottest trends.
