Many people, especially women, have found ways to spruce up their looks in the winter. I see a lot of fashionable knit or wool caps, bright jackets, and now "snow skirts". I see them on lots of women around Juneau. It's like snow pant material but in skirt form. They can go over pants or jeans, but I got one mostly so that I can put it on over my work clothes- which just about always includes a dress or skirt. My snow skirt works perfectly as snow, rain and cold protection to and from work.
Here is my typical work commute outfit. Fleece-lined hat, heavy winter parka, warm fleece gloves, snow skirt and the ever-present, standard Alaska-issue insulated XtraTuf boots. I also received a pair of Bogs band boots for Christmas. They are very popular here, too. I'm also planning to get my hands on a pair of cleats. Not that those are part of the "style"- just useful winter equipment.
