It is interesting to see how people make due with such dilemmas: the risk-takers wear finger-less gloves. I recently read in the Tribune and online that these are a big trend this year. But in sub-zero temperatures, even they are dangerous. Most people stick with the tried-and-true types of mittens--ones that render all hands unmovable.
Yet there are ways to make due with the weather, and to look cute at that. Next week, I plan to lay out some of those ways (not to mention, how to do it on a college budget). For now, pictured here is Evelyn Loomis, a sophomore at DePaul who bundles up more than anyone I know, yet somehow manages to look significantly better than the Michelin Man (whom I keep confusing puffy-coated students for on campus!).
