Winter is finally here and with it, the unbearable wind and snow. This Fashionista does a great job layering to create a fashion forward winter look. I love the lace detailing under her sweater because it is so girly and the vest is another great layering piece. A vest is a fashion piece that also provide extra warmth for a day where it “feels like it’s in the negatives.” This is the perfect outfit for a cold day when you have to walk to class. It is cute, comfy and will keep you nice and warm.

Major: International Relations
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing and where is it from?
Julia Bassin: My top is Millau from LF, a Burberry vest, Hue leggings and Tory Burch boots. The necklace, ring and bracelet are David Yurman, with Henri Bendel earrings and a (KORS) Michael Kors watch.
CF: What is your favorite style at the moment?
JB: I love to wear long oversized sweaters with leggings and tall boots. It’s always fun to dress up outfits with different pieces of jewelry. I alternate classic pearls with both silver and gold pieces. My staple pieces are my rose gold (KORS) Michael Kors watch and diamond studs which belonged to my grandmother. It’s a comfy, yet classic chic look! I also love to make a fashion statement in my red Calvin Klein pea coat.
CF: How has your style evolved over the years?
JB: In high school, I wore ballet flats, jeans and a cardigan over a blouse. Now I alternate jeans with leggings, paired with crewneck sweaters or embellished silk tops, scarves and tall boots. I love to wear black and add a pop of color using a bandeau or a belt. My latest obsessions are bow belts and my new bangles by kate spade.
CF: How do you stay warm but still stylish during the winter months?
JB: I just purchased a long quilted (KORS) Michael Kors jacket. I always wear gray earmuffs in lieu of a hat. I love to complete the outfit with a pair of leather gloves. Cashmere scarves are the best for blustery days!
How To: To get this stylish look, all you need is a sweater with lace detailing on the bottom or any other sweater that creates a layering effect. Pair this with leggings or dark jeans and black boots and it is perfect for a winter day! To add that extra warmth, wear a vest under your jacket like this Fashionista.
