Unless you live in Miami, like to ski and don’t mind spending most of your time indoors watching marathons of Law & Order because the roads are too icy for you to drive, winter can be pretty rough. Who really likes to dress for the cold? Hats make my hair flat, gloves are hard to text with and I can never seem to find the right pair of boots for the season. So, it’s safe to say winter really is not my favorite time of year. But, since I live in New York and go to school in DC, I’ve learned to live with it. And what’s the most important article of clothing one needs for the wintertime? The perfect jacket.
I spotted this Fashionista braving the cold in an L.L.Bean green plaid pea coat. A pea coat is structured, fitted and looks proper in any outfit. The right jacket really can make or break an outfit, and this Fashionista got it right. She paired her coat with a white thermal from the Gap, light gray J.Brand skinny jeans and Liberty Black studded leather boots.
She accessorized very simply with a silver Cartier tank watch and a Charles Krypell bracelet and ring. The Sterling Collection by Charles Krypell offers a simple, youthful and timeless design of sterling silver and 18k gold in many different styles. Personally, I love this collection and have a matching ring and necklace set that I wear frequently. Any piece from the collection would be a perfect gift for Christmas or celebrating the New Year.
One Simple Change: Throw on your backpack and this outfit is perfect for an early class!
