Going home for winter break definitely requires a Fashionista to prioritize her wardrobe. With only one large suitcase, a backpack and possibly a large tote, space is pretty limited for what you can bring home over winter break. Nailing down the basics will help you to divide and conquer the feat that which is packing for your trip back home.
Black pieces will forever be my go-to when it comes to packing for trips anywhere. You can dress it up, dress it down and it goes with everything. Black is extremely versatile and allows you to challenge your sense of style. I love this Fashionista’s take on black. By using hard and soft pieces she broke up the outfit making it appropriate for just about any outing over the break.
An all black outfit is a great way to play with textures as well. This Fashionista paired a black skinny pant that has a slight sheen to it with the leather jacket. Both work really well together and give contrast to the sheer blouse underneath. The jacket is a great piece because it plays with the hard/soft aesthetic in and of itself making it a necessary item to have over the break.
I like that this Fashionista gave a little pop of color with her lip and the navy stripe on her shirt. It’s subtle, yet striking. These features engage a softer side of the ensemble. The boot also adds some softer breakup among the outfit because of the suede texture, while the buckle contrasts the soft.
This Fashionista did a great job using hard and soft pieces to create a beautiful outfit for winter break. It’s easily versatile and ready to go for any occasion.
One Simple Change: For a winter night out, swap the skinny pants for some black patterned tights and a leather pencil skirt. This will make the outfit perfectly dressy for a night out with your friends.
