Vanessa Hudgens: It's Hard to Look Good in the Cold

Vanessa Hudgens seemingly has a great life, bouncing from coast to coast to appear at red carpet events and awards show. But managing to look equally stylish in one sunny city and one snowy spot? Not so simple.

“It’s horrible,” Hudgens said of dressing for frigid New York City. “I bundle up like crazy … it’s not easy.”

The Spring Breakers star, who chatted with PEOPLE at the launch of juniors line L’Amour Nanette Lepore for J.C. Penney in Manhattan last week, said warmth is her highest priority in the winter. “I literally wear like seven layers, I don’t care if it looks good,” she shared. “I’m like functionality over fashion when it comes to cold.”

In Los Angeles, she’s used to “wearing short-shorts and bikini tops,” she said, but at the party, Hudgens opted for black slacks, a pastel peach blouse and a faux leather L’Amour jacket. “I can’t live without my leather jacket. I wear it like every day,” she shared. “It’s so easy to throw on.”

Perhaps we’ll find some faux leather pieces in the star’s impending clothing line, which she revealed she’s in the process of creating now. “I got myself a sewing machine and I’m working on it in my spare time,” she explained. Expect to see that signature boho style Hudgens adores, plus a little influence from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, her fashion icons. As she said, “I want my line to be really personal and perfect.”

I don’t think its hard to stay fashionable in the cold, in the heat you may issues, because depending on the weather you may not want to wear as many clothes, also sweat, and of course the sun is really bad for your skin, there is no safe “sun tan” amount. Having said that maybe its not her style to wear layers of clothes and coats, however in new york city this season is not that bad (a couple snow days in the 20s and 30s) and wasn’t last season, other cities are much colder and even in places like london.
