When are layering and leather ever not in style? This Fashionista turned what normally would be considered a drab Monday into a bright one with this trendy yet comfy look that fits right in with the edgy atmosphere of the South Loop in Chicago. This winter, layering is in major trend, and whether you’re someone who typically layers very eccentrically or simply, you can’t go wrong.

Layering with colors such as white and gray with the addition of black creates a simple look that doesn’t go unnoticed.  If you’re struggling with figuring out what to wear, pick out your favorite neutral-colored pieces and start layering!  One of the current layering trends is wearing turtlenecks under low-cut sweaters and dresses.  This trend is perfect for the chilly day where you don’t want your chest and neck to be bare.

This Fashionista, on the other hand, incorporated the high-low look into her layering.  She wore a gray sweater with a white blouse underneath. The contrast of both of these colors allowed her torso to stand out. She was able to give her look an edgy vibe by adding the hot trend of leather leggings into her ensemble.  Additionally, she adorned her look with a metal statement necklace and this seasons must-have ankle booties.

This Fashionista’s look is perfect for everyday: going to class, running errands, putting in a few hours at work etc.  The next time you’re in a rush to figure out what to wear, take advice from this Fashionista and incorporate layering and leather into your get-up.
