Style Advice of the Week

With the first month of the year comes the inevitable chill in the air as the warm, summer months seem so far out of reach. However, even though it may be tempting to throw on a sweatshirt and yoga pants for an early morning class, all Fashionistas and Fashionistos should consider the alternative: a fabulous pair of jeans and a statement-making coat that lend for an effortlessly, chic way of conquering those January blues.

Possibilities with winter coats are endless. The fit, cut and tailoring, print and color are all important when considering what coat to purchase. I personally see a fabulous coat as a great investment in one’s winter wardrobe. When walking on campus from class to class, what do passersby see first? Well your outwear, of course!

This Fashionista chose a demure and subtle plaid to provide versatility for the season and beyond. With the pairing of classic black boots this look can be perfect for class or a lunch date with friends. Some of my favorite outerwear options include this classic, impeccably versatile Tahari coat. While this may be a great choice for some, others may look for more of a statement-making piece, which can be found in this military-inspired plaid on Piperlime.  To complement your fantastic winter coat, there is no better option than classic boots and a structured, neutral bag.

So whether you prefer a more simplistic style coat or are mad for plaid and bold prints, there is no shortage of choices to fulfill your winter necessities.
