Style Advice of the Week

A sheet of fresh snow five inches deep has finally landed on the grounds of Penn State. The temperatures have dropped drastically and so has the number of students that dress fashionably on campus. I know, I know, freezing cold weather forces people to put dressing warm as their top priority, and often, it’s difficult to balance dressing cute with dressing cozy. Instead, people opt for the typical North Face fleece jacket and UGGs combination, or something along these lines. This Fashionista embodies winter style in a unique way. Who knew crop tops could be styled into winter fashion?

This Fashionista finds a way to heat things up in the cold. Crop tops have been a huge trend since the beginning of this year. It’s almost the end of the year and this trend is still alive and well. This Fashionista wears a sleeveless turtle neck crop top in black, which is both slimming and a color that keeps you warm. She matches her crop top with a pair of figure flattering, light wash skinny jeans, which contrast her black mid calf boots. On a closer look, these boots have hidden wedges in them! These height lifting shoes are perfect for a night out if you want to keep warm but also look cute.

Having a warm coat is essential to survive anywhere on the East Coast. While most coats can look bulky, this Fashionista wears a long black coat with a fur hood that looks and feels cozy without the bulk. Many coats now-a-days focus on making you both look good and feel good. If you want a warm jacket that also gives you shape, I suggest a jacket with a belted waist as seen on this Fashionista.

As for accessories, this Fashionista has on vintage looking rings and a chunky, gray beanie. In a previous article, I talked about the beanie being a huge trend this winter and that they come in all sorts of colors and styles. This photo is proof that my word is true. Try this Fashionista’s sequined beanie for a girly look.
