Minimalistic, casual pieces were all the rage at New York Fashion Week, especially in Topshop Unique‘s fall 2015 collection. Two pieces I frequently saw throughout the show were high-waisted pants and turtlenecks. These are perfect pieces for staying warm in the wintertime, and I’ve definitely been hopping back on this turtleneck and high-waisted trend, as of late.
Up top, I wore a cropped gray turtleneck which was my most recent thrifting find. For bottoms, I wore my totally worn-out disco pants by American Apparel. I’ve had these babies for nearly three years now and, to be honest, I’ve neglected them a lot lately. Years ago, I used to wear these every day! Now I’ve brought them back, and I feel like they really add a super sleek look to the outfit. Since I have short legs, I decided to streamline this by pairing them with my black Chelsea boots by Dizzy.
This outfit is perfect on a chilly winter day in the Pacific Northwest. For even colder weather, I love layering sweaters like this with coats because it keeps me extra warm. Sometimes, all of this layering can get a little bulky on the top, so shimmying into a pair of skinny pants or leggings adds that perfect touch to balance it all out. Playing with varying shades of a color also adds great depth and can really pull everything together into one, solid outfit.
