Street Style: Remember dressing for style and not for survival?

itemprop

Fashion feels furthest from the mind on a cold day like today.

With dangerously low temperatures and windchill, we're more concerned about keeping our fingers and toes than our stylish looks. But remember just a week ago, when things weren't so dire? When we could still consider the best combination of fabrics and colors and prints and not just how many layers would fit under our coats? We're taking you back to those days -- specifically, January 26, at the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory's Winter Carnival Orchid Show at Como Park.
