WHAT TO WEAR: Cold Weather

What to Wear

While scrolling through my news feed on Facebook, I spotted a quote from NASTY GAL that describes this winter season perfectly, “Brave the chill in our newest jackets and coats!” Well, maybe not the “in our newest jackets and coats” part, but I specifically like “brave the chill”, because it seems that University of Arizona Fashionistas are braving the chill in fun and unique ways.

This Fashionista embodies a great, unique way to rock a casual winter outfit. My favorite piece that she is modeling—fabulously I might add, is her deep green jeans. I spotted her in a classroom and her jeans appeared to be black from a distance. However when I approached her, they were surprisingly a shade of green and refreshing. Her colored jeans add uniqueness to her winter look, because it is not the trend of dark blue or black denim that we often see ruling the winter season. Her rustic jeans are also dark enough to be appropriate during the chilly months. Plus, they bring out her beautiful skin tone.

Another one of her pieces that I found to love is her black riding boots. I immediately compared her stylish Alfani boots to the infamous leather Stuart Weitzman ‘Reserve’ over the knee boot. The black leather Alfani boots have a mesh fabric lining in the back of the boot that matches the Stuart Weitzman design. This is a perfect example of rocking high-end designer boots for a lower price! Woo! Even though this Fashionista’s riding boots are not over the knee, they still are a great representation of the Weitzman boots.

Her tribal patterned cardigan from Urban Outfitters is a soft cream color that adds a flattering contrast to her trendy outfit. She represents colored denim and the cardigan well.

One Simple Change: Swap this cardigan for a leather jacket to change this ensemble into a fun, casual date night outfit. Leather is so trendy right now and it gives a little boost to any outfit. If you’re not a fan of leather, add an awesome faux fur vest to glam it up.
