WHAT TO WEAR: Cold Weather

What to Wear

It might be freezing weather, but don’t let Groundhog Phil and his six extra weeks of winter get you down. Instead, embrace it. Just because it’s cold outside, it’s no excuse to slack off and not look your best.

There’s a reason why people call it a “Winter Wonderland.” And while they may be talking about the snow angels and ice-skating, I’M talking about all the extra fashion accessories that come with this time of year. Winter is the time to put on a cute pair of knit mittens or smart-touch gloves, a fabulous print scarf— maybe some knee-high boots. It’s also the perfect time for an excuse to wear that hat you bought and then chickened out on wearing last year.

Use this opportunity to whip out all your favorite winter accessories and show the cold you aren’t afraid to take on its challenging temperatures and winds. But the key to fabulous dressing is always looking and feeling comfortable. In the wintertime, looking comfortable means staying warm. Ultimately, it’s all about layers, layers and more layers. Stylish layers.

That’s exactly what I noticed this Fashionista taking on this week. She was certainly prepared for the cold weather. More than that, her winter get-up achieved that perfect combination of warmth and style.

Notice how this Fashionista shows personality with all she wears– both through her accessories and clothes. What I love about her outfit is that it can be easily imitated with clothing found in your own closet, just by adding and layering clothes you already own. Cold weather might be unpredictable and difficult, but your outfit can be made easy as long as you layer up with you fave sweater and other winter must-haves!

One Simple Change: Switch out all your winter knit accessories (hats, scarves) for some fun and playful jewelry to give your outfit a more elegant look– perfect for an evening out or dinner date!
