What I hate about the winter months is that I feel like I am perpetually in yoga pants or leggings. There is a sea of black wherever you go, and it adds to the depressing cold. What I liked about the refreshing look of this Fashionista is how she took a high-waisted fall short and paired it with black and black tights for an overall winter appropriate look.
Instead of freezing to death with a typical crop top, this Fashionista rocked a long sleeve laser-cut crop top. She paired the shorts with ankle booties. Overall, she is sprucing up the dull winter scene with a pop of color. This look can be transferred over onto your old summer dresses and skirts as well. The key to making your summer clothes last all year long is to ensure the fabric is winter appropriate. This means to steer clear of your light linen or seersucker. While I am all about keeping your clothes updated all year round, you do not want to be wearing the same dress you wore to the beach this summer while there is three feet of snow on the ground. The key is to accessorize and layer to make your clothes fit the winter weather. Stick with dark tights under your short hemline. J.Crew has great ribbed tights to pair with almost anything and to keep your legs warm. Keep the tights in dark grays, blacks or browns — even try a dark red for the holidays.
This winter, spruce up your attire as you get bored with the dull monotony of the winter. If you’re like me and live with unbearable winters, remember to dress appropriately and layer up!
