STYLE ADVICE: Layering in the Winter

STYLE ADVICE: Layering in the Winter

I met an awesome, sweet Fashionista passing through the West Village in New York City.  I was caught by her outfit because she looked so stylish while still looking casual and warm! It was not too cold today and her outfit represents that! What I really like about her look, which is something I try to achieve myself, is that of comfort and style. Most of the time, I’m sure we all want to go to work or school in baggy sweatpants and a tee shirt to have that comfort feeling; but we still want to look cute. The way to get that is by mixing the two together.

This Fashionista’s outfit reminded me of doing that exactly! She’s wearing a long hoodie that can be styled as a dress, with a slip underneath. I love the color of the hoodie, a dark blue, it’s great color for the winter time. What I really like, styled with the hoodie, is her coat. It looks so warm, but the faux suede texture mixed with the light laying fur lining on the inside makes for a really eye-capturing look! Her white sneakers add a nice pop of color to the outfit and makes it look sporty and chic as well!
“It was finally a little warmer today,” she said. “The sun is finally out. But I’m dressed warm on top, I love layering”. Her effortless look is combined with the various patterns and textures along with one another. Layering is such a difficult thing to do, sometimes, because it’s hard to know what goes with what. This Fashionista does everything right! She mixed patterns, colors, textures and it looks effortless.
Layering has been such a big trend over the last couple of months, as we want to bring it into the spring and summer months, and this girl’s got the trick! I love her glasses, such a staple accessory, as glasses have been more on trend. Fake ones and real ones! They’re being shown down the runway as well as being seen on a ton of street stylers!
Simplicity needs to go a long way when layering! A tip for when you’re looking to layer during either the spring or summer, is simplicity, as I mentioned, but it’s also trying different pieces together and seeing what works. This Fashionista added a slip over her hoodie, so it peaks out underneath. Mixing patterns, as this fashionista did, adds to layering. She’s got a hoodie, cotton material, mixed in with the suede and fur. Not all patterns work, of course, so play around with what you’ve got and you can be unstoppable!
