Don’t let the title of this weeks post fool you. Warm winter dress is referring to the seventy-five degree weather in NOLA during the first week of December and that everyone is once again back in clothes meant for warm weather. While these temperatures were enjoyable in the weeks after Labor Day and beneficial for our Halloween attire, most people are eager for winter to finally arrive. With the short-lived cooler weather in the days before Thanksgiving, students were thankful to turnover their wardrobes and replace their exhausted summer attire with their winter wear. However, we can’t wear knee-high suede boots and heavy wool sweaters when it’s seventy-five degrees (unless, you know, you enjoy sweating profusely). So, if you’re looking for a way to dress for warm winter weather, but not be confused as to whether it’s July or December, look no further then the picture above.
This weeks Fashionista was spotted wearing an ensemble that was just the right mix of winter and summer items. Her black denim shorts paired with a turquoise light knit sweater are the perfect choice for warm winter months. The dark color of the shorts, usually reserved for summer, and the bright color of the sweater, typically worn in colder weather, balances out these contrasting seasonal pieces of clothing. The black combat boots are a great addition and on trend for fall with their military aesthetic. For a look similar to this weeks Fashionista, check out these black denim shorts by American Apparel, or opt for a pair with a frayed hem. Tobi makes a great option for a slit sleeve sweater, or try this ribbed version for a slightly different look. Steve Madden has a military chic combat boot just like the ones this Fashionista is sporting. Another way to dress for a warm winter is by pairing boots and tights with your favorite summer dress, or adding a scarf to jeans and a T-shirt. The most important trick here is to incorporate winter trends your own way and make adjustments that work for you in whatever type of climate you live in.
