Just because winter is among doesn’t mean we must stop showing some leg. New York has been experiencing record breaking warm temperatures this season. Luckily for us Fashionistas, this means we can break out some of our edgiest looks that are too dark for the spring and summer. Nothing makes a bold and romantic statement quite like velvet, which is a timeless fabric.

This Fashionista is rocking this velvet romper filled with spunky patterns. You can pick up a similar look from H&M. To go along with this look are the perfect pair of black booties. Booties are all the rage right now, but what I like most about this particular pair is the color. “All-black everything” I always say. Black goes with absolutely anything. What better way to balance out the patterns and fabric of this look than with black shoes? The MAC Matte Royal blue lipstick really adds a unique touch to the look and makes the entire outfit pop. Wearing her hair slicked back also keeps the focal point on her lips. Don’t forget to accessorize! This Fashionista wears three silver rings and a simple elephant charm necklace; it’s nothing too flashy to take away from the patterns in the dress.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Don’t be afraid to be bold when it comes to your look. If you’re comfortable with your style or a specific piece, then go for it no matter the color or design. Velvet is such a great look for the winter! It’s perfect for a casual dinner or a night out on the town. I love topping off my style with bold color lips!”
