For winter break I went back home to the East Coast. For my final week back home, I decided to spend it in the Big Apple; New York City. With my luck, I arrived the same time as a couple of my old friends, a blizzard and an arctic blast. The harsh winds and slippery sidewalks were washed out with white and then I saw this Fashionista brightening up the street in her colorful outerwear. It’s often difficult to insert your fashion sense deep into the winter. Winter is a time to dress warm and most of those jackets are black and blah, but this Fashionista knows how color can punch up an outfit and liven up a street.

How To: The two statement pieces of this Fashionista’s ensemble are her bright jacket and metallic boots. Some nice alternatives to the typical down jacket are this floral print Paul by Paul Smith jacket and if you want to really invest in your coat this color blocked Moncler jacket. An alternative to metallic boots that are equally fun are these space printed ModCloth boots.
