ALL IN THE DETAILS: Winter-Worthy Parka

Lately, temperatures have been unseasonably warm. It’s been feeling more like spring and less like winter. Who said winter has to be cold anyway? Well, Mother Nature must have had a change of heart because the first snowstorm has finally arrived! Winter is here and it’s here to stay.

This means for many people it’s time to put away light cardigans and break out winter jackets, boots and warm accessories. But don’t fret! Dressing warm does not mean dressing dull. If anything, dressing warm allows for layers, comfort and several style enhancers!

This Fashionista rocks a stylish weather-friendly ensemble. Wool-lined parkas are a great addition to any winter outfit. Benefits include comfort, warmth and the perfect addition to pulling any outfit for seasonably chilly weather together. Combat boots provide edge to an outfit and are great for combating the elements: snow, slush and of course when the snow melts, jumping over puddles. Plaid shirts are a fashion gift. They are great for multiple seasons and come in an array of colors and styles. This means adding a plaid shirt to an outfit almost always works due to the variety of styles and ways you could wear one. Not to mention, they are a great way to stay cozy in cold weather.

This Fashionista completes her look with light wash ripped jeans, a black flannel shirt, a hand-crafted ring and a rocking pair of glasses.

How To: Don’t be afraid of colors and layers. To make an outfit stand out, use multiple elements and colors. Start out with a plaid shirt. Find a different color jacket and jeans that complement each other. Add accessories like rings or glasses to really amp up your weather friendly outfit.
