WHAT TO WEAR: Winter Break

What to Wear

Winter break is so close you can almost feel the brisk cold and freedom of three weeks off smacking you in the face. Chances are you’ve already literally felt the cold brisk smack you in the face, but what better reminder that soon this semester and all its classes, exams and papers will be in the rearview mirror?

Whether you plan on going home, on vacation or plan to kick in A2 for those blessed weeks with severed ties to academic responsibility, one thing is certain: break is the perfect time to vamp up your winter wardrobe. Let’s face it: if you think it’s cold now, you’ve obviously never been in Michigan for January or February or March, and sometimes April.

This Fashionista proves that dressing for winter doesn’t mean sacrificing your personal style. Her navy blue fur-lined parka will not only keep her warm, but her style in tact as well. And her Louis Vuitton monogram graffiti bag gives a needed pop of orange to the typically dark and muted colors of the season.

When it comes to shoes, boots typically reign superior in our minds as far as practicality in winter, but she manages to pair her Tory Burch ballet flats with black tights to make them just as functional for the season (when the snow comes, it may be a different story, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it).

Dressing for winter break doesn’t always mean layering every The North Face you have or hibernating solely in yoga pants and sweatshirts. Finding the perfect coat and adding a touch of color will get you through those weeks safely and sartorially sound.

One Simple Change: Although speaking of school seems a little sacrilegious right now, I’m going to start thinking ahead for the sake of all of us. For a day of class, she could switch her smaller bag for a larger tote capable of carrying all her academic necessities — you know, like books and stuff.
