Just when you think El Niño is here to stay, the snowpocalypse sweeps over the east coast and going without a sweater is no longer an option. Guiltily wishing winter away, I took to checking out the pre-fall 2016 runway shows. My personal favorite was Lanvin. Full-length, oversized sweaters could be found on a majority of the models and layering was well represented as full-length skirts peaked out from underneath. Maybe the colonial folks were right and ladies shouldn’t be showing their ankles, or at least not this time of year; it’s just too cold for that.

Like some of the sweaters featured from the Lanvin show, mine has a thick faux fur collar. Of course El Niño had me more than ready to wear skirts and dresses throughout what seemed to be a rather warm winter at first. Lucky for me, Lanvin featured numerous styles of long skirts, some of which swept across the floor like the winter snowstorms have begun doing. The voluminous white skirt I decided to wear was similar to one featured on one of Lanvin’s models. Going along with the splash of fall colors from this runway show, I chose a sweater full of burnt amber and golden brown hues. Complementing both the trim of the sweater and the snow on the ground, I slipped my feet into some fur-trimmed UGGs snow boots .These boots have definitely become a staple in my wardrobe to help fight off the nippy wind and wintery weather.

I can’t get enough of the free-spirited, bohemian aesthetics that have graced the fashion industry recently. Both the colors and shapes of the garments are aesthetically pleasing and I love wrapping myself up in them to embrace the colder seasons. Luckily many of the recent runway shows have been showcasing this style, so I’m reassured that it’s here to stay for while.
