Back To The Basics

The perfect way to avoid all the cold winter weather is to curl up on the couch with a good show and a hot tea (if only I could hibernate indoors for a couple months!). I find wintertime is a great time to get creative and figure out ways to stay fashionable and keep warm. There are a lot of factors that can impact the outfit/shoes you choose for the day (ie. freezing rain, black ice on the sidewalks, windy weather), and the perfect way to bear with those factors, is to have a good solid winter jacket (preferably with a big hood in my opinion). I absolutely adore my winter jacket from Mackage, because it’s clean and streamline. The fur hood is big enough to look great and keep my hairstyle intact at the same time (will post pictures soon!).

On the days it isn’t super rainy or snowy, I like to change up my outerwear with a basic coat (like the one above) or a trench. This simple-cut coat allows me to easily match many outfits because of it’s natural color. I love that it adds the perfect amount of color to my shades of black, white, and grey. Another great way to keep warm is to wear thigh highs instead of the regular leggings and skinny pants. If you pair it with the right shoes, it can add an interesting element to your outfit and elongate your legs as well! I wore mine with some sheer pantyhose to stay extra toasty! I added a turban-like headband to accessorize and keep my ears warm at the same time. Feel free to experiment with your sweaters over the winter months with vests overtop, layering chiffon blouses beneath in different lengths, with large blanket scarves, double layering, or even wearing it over a romper like I did above, which helped me utilize a bit of my summer wardrobe.

If you have any religious winter fashion tips, I would love to know!

What I’m Wearing: Sweater, Jacket, Thigh Highs, and Romper (H&M), Headband (Forever21), Booties (Little Burgundy Shoes), Necklace (BCBG Max Azria), Bracelets (Tiffany’s, Banana Republic)
