WHAT TO WEAR: Cold Weather

What to Wear

It’s a new year and we’re back at school. We’re past the holidays and for whatever reason, it’s still cold (I think it’s called “winter” but don’t quote me on that). Therefore, I am somewhat constantly finding it difficult to leave the confines of my bed, and I drowsily laugh at the thought of being trendy in this abysmal cold.

Yet as it turns out, it is still possible to keep your style intact during the cold months. While appropriately dressed for the the brisk, windy weather in a classic black peacoat (similar here), this Fashionista stands out amongst the assembly of North Face parkas with the pop of color from her neon pink scarf (similar here). Even though I’m partial to dark and neutral tones (I heard that’s what Parisians do, I don’t know, I’m trying), I do love being surprised by little details in people’s wardrobes and color is a perfect way to do that.

And while winter and boots often go hand and hand, let it be known that the two are not mutually exclusive. While going from class to class in sandals is a thought far removed from my mind right now, I am a big supporter of varying your winter footwear to alternative varieties that actually cover your foot. I, like the rest of the world, would do desperate and embarrassing things for those Isabel Marant sneakers. Unfortunately, no one has taken me up on my offer and I don’t have hundreds of dollars to spend on shoes (despite how perfect they may be), which this Fashionista seems to understand, as she is sporting a cute, and much more affordable version of said perfection.

All of this paired with a classic black and white striped sweater make this look a simple and chic way to amp up your style as you transition from your winter break uniform of yoga pants and food-stained sweatshirts. Just me? Okay.

One Simple Change: Swapping out the jeans for leather leggings can easily take you from class to a dinner date.
