Since it is the holiday season, I guess I will forgive New York for recently pulling a fast one on us, throwing us into snow storms and 20-degree weather (not that this weather is ever ideal, if you ask me). These harsh conditions make going outside seem like a daunting task, let alone going outside in anything but oversized parkas and snowshoes. If you think I am referring to anything but those innovative tennis rackets turned into weather fighting footwear, think again. Dramatic? Maybe. Nonetheless, staying warm while looking cool is a tough combination to nail. Luckily for all you Fashionista/os out there looking for some snow solitude, this week’s Fashionista proves you can look fabulous in the midst of ferocious flurries.
I spotted this Fashionista moseying around campus, looking cool and content against the windchill. I’d like to think the windchill agreed with my appearance in the same manner, but that would be about as accurate as saying one would actually need the said traditional snowshoes in the boogie down Bronx. This Fashionista is effortlessly trendy, mixing staple items with spunky accents. She is the star studded banner of successful accessorizing.
Take a gander at those killer boots, for instance. Now, please be polite and grab a napkin because you’re probably drooling. These over-the-knee riding boots take on a different dimension with their silver studded accents. Plus, the understated belt buckles (quite literally) bring the boot together as a final and fashionable statement. I’ll tell ya what, these boots were made for walking…in the snow. Staying sweet and sassy, this Fashionista dons a studded cross-body bag from Francesca’s collection. It’s the perfect size, minimizing the time spent shuffling for mittens in a bigger bag.
Next time you find yourself in a snowy situation (so, probably within the week), take a cue from this week’s Fashionista and spice up your boot with a little spunky stud!
Spotted: If there’s one thing MM6 Maison Martin Margiela does better than alliteration, it’s looking so fresh and so fly in practical, multifunctional footwear.
