ALL IN THE DETAILS: Pretty in Plaid

I think everyone would agree with me when I say that upstate New York has some of the most bipolar weather in the world. Here it is, the middle of winter, rainy and 50 degrees, and we are supposed to have a snow storm soon. The hardest challenge us New Yorkers have to face is the difficult task of figuring out what to wear each day.

It’s not always easy when you are attempting to look cute while still staying warm. This Fashionista chose to stay warm and cozy for the day in her trendy, plaid blanket scarf. Her outfit includes a bunch of light layers with the main accessory being the scarf, which brings a pop of color to the outfit—something that is much needed during these gray winter months.

Blanket scarves are the perfect accessory for this time of year because they allow you to stay warm, and you can pair them with almost anything. Not only are they extremely versatile, but you can also wear them a bunch of different ways as well. It is a must-have statement piece that will never go out of style.

This Fashionista chose to add in a few accessories that really help make the outfit. She paired her scarf with a light army green jacket. I have a similar one and I have definitely gotten a lot of use out of it. Not only can it can be paired with almost anything, but it is perfect for those days where you don’t need a heavy winter coat. This Fashionista also chose to pair her outfit with a fashionable maroon tote and a pair of adorable pearl earrings, and she was set to go!

How To: Tired of wearing boring winter outfits? No worries. Throw on your favorite pair of jeans, pair it with an oversized blanket scarf, top it off with a light jacket and booties, and you are set for the day!
