It’s time to get out your hats and gloves, because the winter winds are ruthless. Staying warm should be your number one priority, but of course you can look nice while doing it. I’ve seen so many black coats this winter that it’s nice to see this Fashionista wearing the opposite color. The only downside is that you have to clean a white coat consistently or the dirt really shows. Of course it’s always nice to own a black coat but you can always add some brightness to the winter blues.
This Fashioista is wearing a flannel underneath her bright white coat. Flannels are casually cool when it gets chilly. The nice thing about these warm button-ups is that you can throw them on anytime, anywhere and be super comfortable. Madewell has cute flannels but I would also check out a thrift store if you want some for a few dollars.
Keeping your head warm is crucial, so why not pop with color? This Fashionista’s neon orange beanie can be seen a mile away and it keeps her noggin from freezing. Beanies are big this winter and Neff is my favorite brand. Karmaloop has a large range of hat styles to choose from too. I own a good bag full of beanies and I wear different ones depending on what I’m wearing that day.
Black boots are always easy to match with almost any outfit. This Fashionista is wearing Coach boots that were a gift and I was thrilled that they were real leather with fur fringes. Keeping your shoes and bag one color is an old fashion trick that never fails. Mixing too many colors can become a disaster so try to stick to three to four colors in the overall outfit.
One Simple Change: If Andrea were to put on a classier coat and remove the hat, she could wear this outfit to a winter night out. Wool coats have been trending for a few years now and I think moving from the traditional black color would be less boring. I own a light pink one and barely wear my all-black one anymore.
