Fall is over and it breaks my heart. The season of light jackets, tights and loafers is over and we’re left with all the bulk of winter wear. Luckily, there are a few Fashionistas (myself, included) that brave the cold temperatures in order to continue wearing some of our favorite pieces. So before you officially pack up all your summer and fall pieces, get one or two more wears out of your “not winter” clothing like shorts and crop tops.
I caught up with this Fashionista after she was leaving her art history class. Although it was less than desirable weather, she donned a classic white crop paired with high-waisted shorts that we’re beautifully offset by a statement coat. She could wear her favorite warm weather pieces because the combination of thick mauve tights and the winter coat transitioned it perfectly into winter clothing.
This Fashionista encapsulates the winter wear trend of actually not wearing classic winter wear. She skipped the regular boots with a sweater look and took the jump to incorporate summer trends like crop tops and high-waisted shorts. She took fun pieces and made them wearable in the colder months by what she paired it with.
There’s no need to go out and purchase something for this Style Advice of the Week. The trick is to make your warm weather pieces work within a colder framework. Grab your favorite shorts and your favorite crop top and pair them with a heavier colored tight and statement coat to make them useful in the colder season. It is a small window before it becomes too cold to do, so follow this Fashionista and grab your last fun warm weather clothes to help fight the approaching dreary winter months.
The trick here is to not push it. No one wants to be the girl that is severely under dressed in the snow, so as long as the weather kind of permits, give it a shot and bring your favorite summer pieces into your almost winter wardrobe!
