Upon waking on a cold winter day, I find myself prioritizing comfort and warmth over style. But, this Fashionista, found walking down the street adjacent to this nearby park, models how to strike the perfect cold weather balance between fashion and function. By pairing staple pieces of riding boots and a chunky sweater, this Fashionista created a polished, everyday look. My favorite part of this outfit was the back of the sweater, which featured delicate crochet detailing, serving to give a fresh look to this classic piece. The pairing of the sweater with black boots and dark jeans kept the outfit clean and crisp.
