Snow is only magical in New York City for an hour or two. Then it turns into gritty, grimy slush that trails behind you into the subway, your work and your apartment. Everything seems cold. Meanwhile, the winter wind is poking its icy fingers down your collar, up your coat sleeves and numbing your hands in its grip. So if you're like me and saying to yourself, "Damn, I am not prepared for this," then welcome to the club. Sustainable fashion usually makes us think of summery things like peasant dresses and yoga tanks and flower crowns. A pity, because there are plenty of ethical and toasty options out there to get you through the rest of our bitter NYC winter. (More proof that you can find anything in the conscious version.) I've rounded them up for you here. Grab a cup of fair trade cocoa, setlle in by the fire, and feast your eyes these:
