Style Advice of the Week

New England Fashionistas know that snow, wind and crisp air are weak excuses for not looking stylish. Winters in the Northeast usually consist of dark, dreary clothing that often get repetitive and boring. Why not spice up your winter wardrobe by picking classic pieces that use a pop of color or unique design? Not only will you save money by purchasing timeless items, but your fresh hues will be a breath of fresh air to everyone’s chilly January days.

This Fashionista rocks black leather riding boots and black jeans with a pink two-toned button-down from J.Crew and a clean white fur vest. Her outfit has the right balance between contrast and coordination to look put-together, but trendy and fun as well. The two tones in the button-down add a beautiful pastel pop of color to cold and dreary winter days, but keeps it classic. The versatility of the top can be a financially smart investment, dressing it down with blue jeans and flats, or dressing it up with fur and wedges. It’s preppy, fun and colorful enough to make your winter wardrobe go from drab to fab.

There are multiple more ways you can work this piece into your outfit, adding statement accessories or tucking it into a pencil skirt — the options are endless. To find a cute fur vest to go over your button-down, you can shop at bebe for a splurge or H&M for a steal. Just seek classic pieces in bright colors or unique designs while you shop and statement layering items that can be paired together for the ultimate snow bunny chic ensemble.

Whether your style is preppy, edgy or trendy, a timeless top never hurts anyone’s closet and can be molded into your own style with the right colors and accessories. Using classic pieces in bold colors and designs is the perfect way to be financially smart and stylish all while staying warm and cute in those long, cold winters.
