WHAT TO WEAR: Cold Weather

What to Wear

Looking exquisitely fashionable during this cold wintry season is simpler than you think! Do not fear these harsh winter days; embrace them. My WHAT TO WEAR for this week will leave you with a few fashion tips that every Fashionista can take to the chic city streets with style. These winter staple items should be part of every Fashionista’s closet – winter is all about outerwear.

The Trench Coat: stylish, sleek and sexy, irrevocably timeless and classy. This is a crucial item for every stylish gal to have readily available in her closet – whether it is a pretty colored wool coat, a dressier trench or parka with a fur collar, or both!

Our Fashionista smartly models her black pea coat accented with a warm floral scarf. The scarf keeps her neck warm while looking absolutely amazing, complimenting the black jacket. The colored flowers pop against the sharp black outerwear. Kenneth Cole carries a fashionable variety of trendy trench coats. Our favorite pick is Cole’s Grey Patterned Wool-Blend Trench Coat. Every Fashionista who cuddles up in this coat is sure to look smart. Betsey Johnson’s Faux Fur Leopard Trench Coat is dressy and makes a ‘wow’ fashion statement. Bebe designed a sleek and dressy black Fur Collar trench coat that will make any Fashionista blend scandalously into the dark night with black velvet pumps and black tights.

Fashionable Wool Scarf: the scarf truly makes all the difference in your entire outfit – transforming it from just okay to absolutely fabulous and eye-catching. This wintry season’s colors modeled on the runway are emerald, bright purple, chartreuse, winter white, ink, grey and royal blue. Scarves in any of these brighter shades look striking with a winter white trench coat, and a winter white scarf would look chic paired with a midnight black trench coat. Michael Kors and Anthropologie have great selections of fashionably chic wool scarves.

One Simple Change: Incorporate additional accessories to match, and make the outfit totally pop – do not be afraid to take it a step further. In the fashion world, you must be bold. Colorful wool head wraps, earmuffs or caps, along with fur gloves or cashmere mittens are chic options to dress up your outerwear. Always remember, during this brisk winter season your main fashion focus should be on the outerwear. The jacket, scarf and accessories are what will catch everyone’s eyes in fun city pictures and simply walking down the streets in style.
