We all have that one classroom during the day that is uncomfortably freezing, but there is one thing that this issue screams: shopping spree!

Whether it‘s room 2014 or 1051, certain rooms are renowned for being unbearably frigid.

But I am not here to complain about it, I am here to present the ultimate style guide in surviving the worst chill of your life.

First of all, I’m just going to tell you right now that down coats are a no-go for this complication because they are dramatic looking, and put you at risk of being nicknamed marshmallow girl.

I would know.

Another choice explored by many, which I am about to shut down, is a sweatshirt. Sweatshirts are for the gym. Or snow days. Or anywhere you’re alone.

But come on, sweatshirts just make you look grimy. It’s basically like screaming to the school that you rolled out of bed and barely made the bus.

However, I do know an item that is fashionable, and will keep you snug all day: a fleece.

My favorite aspect of fleeces is that their casual nature provide the opportunity to  have that rolled-out-of-bed-looking-effortlessly-gorgeous look.

Also, when I wear one, I feel a comfort similar to a lady surrounded by her nine cats on a Friday night watching “Friends” marathons.

Let me just say that ever since I got this revolutionary item, my day is less of a polar vortex, and I can tell everyone wishes they could be as cozy as me.

So to all of my fellow temperature survivors reading this, until we can solve the chronicles of the erratic temperature changes, do yourself a favor and invest in a fleece.
