Style Advice of the Week

There’s something so unbelievably wonderful about a snowy winter. Big beautiful snowflakes sticking to your eyelashes and the comforting prospect of a steaming cup of coffee at your favorite cafe. But, the best part of December? The blissful end of finals and the beginning of the holidays are right around the corner. No matter what holiday you celebrate, let this Fashionista’s cheery style inspire your season spirit.

On a dreamy snow-covered backdrop, there’s no better color than red to make you stand out in the crowd. This trendsetter’s incredible blend of plaid, leather and red makes for an unforgettable outfit that’s warm and cozy on a chilly winter day. If you’re loving the chic richness of this plaid look, try out this wool coat. The combination of bright red fabric, leather and fur collar is an original take on an already luxurious and festive style. Even amongst all the stress of finals week, a cheerful bit of plaid will definitely lift your spirits.

When you’re walking in a winter wonderland (literally), there’s nothing more important than the shoes on your feet. Warmth, sturdiness and grip are crucial attributes, but can’t they be cute too? This fashion maven has found the most adorable pair of plaid winter booties that make trekking the snowy streets seem feel like a fashion adventure. To make every day feel just a little jollier, try these black and plaid combat boots. They’ll tie in the pattern of your coat perfectly.

When it comes to winter, choosing the right scarf is of utmost importance. This Fashionista’s thick, cream cashmere scarf is the perfect mediator between the bright red coat and bright red lipstick. It lets both sides of color pop beautifully against the snowy scenery. Try out this Paula Bianco chunky knit scarf for a warm and cozy addition to any winter outfit.

This fashion connoisseur definitely deserves applause for her accessorizing. She knows that finding the right accessories doesn’t necessarily mean throwing on a few big jewelry pieces. The tousled french braid twisted around her head is a fantastically original accessory all in itself. Every day is a good day to experiment with your locks, and a braid like this will withstand any amount of snow. In addition to an alternative hairstyle, nothing brightens a smile like bright red lipstick. Her red lipstick and black leather gloves are a classy and timeless combination that complete this chic look.

If the stress is getting in your way, take a moment to relax and take in just how magical the city looks under the snow. A little plaid and a touch of leather may be all that’s needed to make your day a fashion success!
