Style Advice of the Week

It is the middle of winter and the continuous struggle to stay warm remains the goal. However unlike some other places, Los Angeles is experiencing what feels like bipolar weather as in hot weather at one hour and cold and windy in the next. The only solution to this conundrum is layering. Layering allows you to shed articles of clothing when it’s hot and put them back on again when it’s cold. I’ve always admire the people who are able to pile on layers and still have that je ne sais quoi. This is no exception.

This Fashionista is wearing a white coat, burgundy sweater, black jeans and brown lace-up boots. Her coat stands out against the darker tones in her outfit and her burgundy sweater adds a subtle pop of color. Her outfit is minimalistic, but retains a hint of coolness to it using the various textures found in her coat, sweater and boots. Her look doesn’t need too much effort and can be dressed up by adding a statement necklace and heels.

With a coat like this Fashionista’s, skinny or any slim fit jeans help balance the outfit or you can pair her coat with a cute smock dress, thigh-high socks and boots. To create your own layered look, start with a printed cami and skirt then layer a cropped sweater and a coat over it. Accessorize your look with knee-high socks and heeled ankle boots.

Layering is a great way to stay warm and can be transitioned into other seasons as well. This Fashionista’s effortless, layered outfit shows that anyone can achieve this look while still showing style and coolness.
