STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Baby It's Cold Outside

We have once again come to the time of year where most people just want to stay in bed, curled up with a blanket and a cup of hot cocoa while watching a romantic comedy, instead of venturing out into the cold weather. Nothing makes people want to stay in bed more than a cold winter day. However, despite our wishes we must all get up, get ready for the day and put our cold weather gear on to trek through the snow.

But, who says this gear has to be boring or ugly? The best way to get yourself excited about your day or cold weather is by having fun, cute winter wear. This Fashionista is doing just that with her brightly colored coat. Nothing is more fun and cheerful than bright colors. By opting for a bright colored coat, you add some fun and cheer to not just your outfit, but also your whole day. Instead of choosing a puffer coat that makes moving around almost impossible, this Fashionista chose a wool coat that is functional while still remaining warm. Staying warm is the ultimate goal during winter, because what fun is looking cute if you feel like you are developing hypothermia?

This Fashionista has layered her coat over a similarly colored sweater dress, making this outfit work with her coat buttoned or unbuttoned. She also made sure her legs stayed warm by ditching bare legs in favor for tights and by wearing snow friendly booties. By choosing a combat style boot, she adds a little bit of an edge to her outfit making it even more fun.

By keeping her makeup minimal, the focus stays on the true star of her outfit, the coat. This Fashionista chose to go with an understated eye by applying a mauve eyeshadow to the lids and a few coats of mascara. Pulling the look together with a lipstick similar in color to her coat.
