With the NHL Stadium Series in full swing, players are stepping up to the plate for the outdoor game. While the contest between the Anaheim Ducks and LA Kings had fans taking in the game under fairly warm conditions, over on the east coast the games are being played under a slightly lower temperature.

The New York Islanders will hit the ice at Yankee Stadium for the second of two games to be played in the Bronx. The New York Rangers dominated the New Jersey Devils in a commanding 7-3 win on Sunday. Will they garner the same results when they face off against the Islanders on Wednesday? Only time will tell, but with temperatures predicted in the high teens, fans catching the game may want to bundle up for the conditions.

Layers and winter apparel are obviously key, but the desire to not look like you rolled off the set of a Christmas Story is usually a reasonable one as well.

Hat, gloves and a jacket are a no-brainer but just because they are necessary, doesn’t mean you can’t pick ones that showcase your love of the team and are still stylish. We love the mittens, especially because they hold hand warmers comfortably. You can thank us later, but the handwarmers which can be picked up at any outdoor store or places like Target, Walmart and Home Depot are a must.

Of course, no one will see what’s under the jacket while you’re at the stadium, but if you pre-game the game or meet up with friends and family afterwards, you’re going to want to be prepared. Represent in Islanders colors with a thermal, cardigan and fun scarf – we loved the star gazer pattern.

Fleece lined leggings will keep you warm at the game and picking a boyfriend style jean is comfortable, will fit the leggings under nicely while still keeping you stylish for puck drop.

Warm boots, no heel will help with whatever the elements are throwing your way in the stands, and warm socks will keep you toasty too.

Finally to combat the crowds, we chose a cross body bag in a hue of Islanders orange to use at the game.

Layers, layers, layers = fun, fun, fun!

Remember, if you don’t root for the Islanders you can implement the same theory into a Rangers color scheme.
