As the weather gets colder, closets seem to dwindle to only a few key pieces in someone’s wardrobe. The thick jacket, the comfortable sweater, the fuzzy socks and, of course, the corduroy pants. I know I usually bear the chilly temperatures by hiding in my thickest sweater and my warmest hat. Although winter is cold, and it’s great to hide in a huge sweater, it’s also nice to reach for a dress and layer it into something that is chic for every day, and will also keep you warm when it’s cold outside.
This Fashionista caught my eye with the muted color scheme of her ensemble, and the effortless way she wore a dress even when the temperatures dropped here in Knoxville. She paired her tulip, polka-dot dress with thick leggings to keep her legs warm, and a comfortable wool sweater that also helped block off some of the wind shield. She accessorized with a pair of brown, flat booties and her signature black glasses, a perfect addition to her laid back yet cool style.
Although some pieces are essential for surviving the winter cold, like that jacket and those socks, it’s nice to be able to reach for a dress or a skirt to add some variety to an otherwise lackadaisical wardrobe. Instead of the basic black jacket, opt for a fuzzy, faux-fur jacket. Instead of those worn out jeans, wear a long skirt that will block of the wind. Don’t forget to accessorize with a colorful and comfortable scarf and a bright neon beanie.
There’s no doubt that fashion is somewhat controlled by the weather, but that doesn’t mean you can’t break the rules sometimes. By layering and accessorizing, you can make every piece in your wardrobe suitable year-round.
