I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to go home for the holidays and I couldn’t have been more excited. It is always great to get in touch with my Californian roots and scope out the stylings of those around me.
I was fortunate enough to come across this Fashionista wearing a very California preppy winter look. This Fashionista was able to combine perfectly preppy clothes without looking stuffy. I love her V-neck sweater; she keeps it casual with jeans and a knit scarf.
It is easy to overlook the importance of boots this season. They are great pieces and additions to any fall and winter wardrobe. This Fashionista utilizes her boots! While it was not raining, it was certainly chilly the morning I found this Fashionista. She was able to use her boots to keep her warm; they also added depth and sophistication to her preppy outfit.
I cannot compliment this Fashionista’s style enough. She is able to change what is typically a stuffy style into something all Fashionistas (grunge or beyond) can achieve with ease and comfort. This style can also be changed and personalized. I recommend adding a great statement necklace for some added oomph, or try short boots and black jeans along with a gray sweater to keep it warm and modern. You could also try pairing your sweater with a pair of colored jeans for a more funky approach. It is easy to mix and match styles with this basic look. Remember to make it your own, take risks and keep warm and comfy!
