Sure, you could entertain the idea of staying home and not even bothering with the ice apocalypse, but come on. Do not even kid yourself, because you know you're going out anyway. Ditch the gown and go for something more—what's the word?—insulating. Heat things up in a jumpsuit with a plunging neckline and floor-skimming hem. Offset the all-black attire with super saturated accoutrements, like a mustard clutch and geometric coat. Then finish with stacked chokers for a just hint of glimmer. Nothing, not even sub-zero temperatures, can keep you from a good night out.
