WHAT TO WEAR: Shopping

What to Wear

I never get tired of answering the question: What’s your favorite hobby? Shopping, duh. There’s nothing better than the thrill of making a purchase or holding fresh, unworn fabric in your hands and declaring, “This is mine.” Maybe I’m a little extreme, but I know many of you Fashionistas are with me. The recent frigid months have made it tough to get out to the shops of Georgetown and walk around without freezing. This Fashionista gave me the perfect solution—you guessed it, layering.

I’ve mentioned it before and I’ll mention it again—layering is the best way to defend yourself from the bitter weather we are still experiencing. This Fashionista keeps her layers simple to take on and off while trying on clothes at various shopping locations. This Fashionista rocks a forest green dress, topped with her heavy peacoat. She adds a pair of simple black tights that bring an element of style to the look. Her boots bring in an extra layer of warmth and texture! Finally, this Fashionista adds a pop of bright red with a thick, oversized scarf.

You can layer your shopping look and stay warm with the perfect scarf, like this Fashionista. The oversized nature of the go-to accessory calls for extra warmth and texture. It also brings in that pop of color every outfit needs. When shopping, a scarf is your best option to stay warm on the go because it can easily be taken off and held while exploring stores. Even though winter is (hopefully) coming to an end, thick scarves are always beneficial. They can hang without being wrapped for a bohemian summer look or wrapped up to the chin for maximum warmth.

Shopping is an event, and for that, you must be perfectly prepared! Follow this Fashionista’s fashion-forward, shopping-ready look and brave the winter cold with layers!

One Simple Change: Have a fancy date night coming up? Switch out the boots for a pair of patent leather black heels and you’re dressed to impress!
