Style Advice of the Week

When the weather is dark and dreary, it is easy to find yourself replicating that sentiment. Whether it be through the colors or textures you are wearing, many Fashionistos and Fashionistas can emulate their environment without even realizing it. However, this is not a bad habit by any means. This Fashionista is a perfect example of how dark can be chic and anything but dreary, even amidst the rain and snow.

I spotted this Fashionista on her way to a morning class. Her dark ensemble caught my eye and reminded me of how easy it can be to dress with style, even on the most lazy and miserable days. From her fitted black jacket to her Hunter Boots, this look was adorable. It demonstrates that simply choosing a pair of rain boots, instead of settling for sweatpants or a pair of UGGs can make all the difference. Rain boots are an easy means of transforming your look from satisfactory to stylish, not to mention they are incredibly durable for any type of lousy weather.

The combination of the slim-fitting jacket, black leggings and rain boots with a colorful plaid shirt is so easy to replicate. The key to recreating this look is investing in pieces that will keep you warm, but also complement your body type. Black is an extremely flattering color, so try and focus on finding fabrics and silhouettes that will accentuate your size and stature. Then to complete the look, simply add a chunky infinity scarf, plaid button-down and a classic black tote. With this ensemble you will never fail to look cohesive and cute.
