Style Advice of the Week

As the winter quickly approaches, there is no better way to be in style then by wearing a fashionable jacket.  Bundling up can leave us Fashionistas feeling very unfashionable. Sometimes, we need to live by the common motto “beauty is pain” and refrain from bundling up on those cold winter days and stick with wearing a bold and fashionable jacket opposed to a coat that is just intended to keep you warm.

A jacket is usually either a hip- or waist-length garment. When picking out the most fashionable jacket, it is good to stick with one that typically has sleeves, and fastens in the front. A jacket should also be generally lighter, tighter fitting, and less insulating than a coat. This Fashionista is wearing a forest green trench coat, which can be purchased at Polyvore. There are many different types of jackets such as a peacoat and a trench coat. They also come in many different colors and materials, so it is a good idea to have a collection of different jackets for the upcoming winter season.

This Fashionista is also wearing a pair of HUE jeggings, which she purchased a Lord & Taylor. Jeggings are the perfect fashionable yet comfortable item of clothing to wear. Although they appear as jeans, they are made in legging material. They come in many different washes, and they go well tucked into to any type of boot..

When wearing a pair of boots with jeggings, it is a good idea to wear a pair of high socks or leg warmers as well. It adds a stylish look, while also keeping you warm. This Fashionista decided to wear a pair of knee socks, but you can find an array of styles and color leg warmers from American Apparel.
