The sunny blue skies no longer fool me. For the past week or so, I haven’t been able to walk outside for more than five seconds without losing all feeling in my hands and face. I wake up hopeful every morning that maybe it’s a couple degrees warmer, but my hopes are always thwarted by reality when I check the weather.
One of the reasons I don’t like the winter is because everyone seems to dress with such lack of imagination; everyone looks so dull and sad in their black and gray winter coats. That’s why this Fashionista immediately caught my eye! It’s always a great idea to add a pop of color in your outfit if you’re feeling kind of fun and it’s even better during these cold months. You’re more likely to stand out if you change your color palette a little bit and spice things up.
This Fashionista chose a bright orange wool coat to make herself pop, which she certainly did. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a huge fan of leather leggings and this Fashionista wears them really well. She paired her outfit nicely with an oversized brown leather bag and a beautiful wool scarf. It’s always a great idea to bundle up around these parts because you never know when those Boston winds will (literally) blow you away!
This Fashionista has a great set of leather gloves and I now find myself wanting my own! They’re great to keep your hands warm while making you look and feel trés chic! Rather than wearing boring winter boots, this Fashionista chose awesome combat boots to complete her look. Try to put a little spin on your cold weather wear to stand out in the sea of black and gray. Who knows? You might put a little smile on someone’s face.
One Simple Change: If you’re running from a late class to a fancy dinner with the girls, you’re going to want to strap on a nice pair of pumps to complete your outfit. Check out this pair from Steve Madden.
