STYLE GURU STYLE: Winter Cream

I wasn’t always one to turn to runway trends for fashion inspiration. I had always assumed these looks would be too outrageous for everyday wear and obviously out of my price range. The truth is, runway styles are the perfect go-to for outfit ideas. You can pull trends, fabrics and general concepts from runway looks without identically replicating them yourself. It’s more of a reference for the season’s upcoming trends than anything.

For this season, I was inspired by a look from Emilia Wickstead’s fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection. She focuses on pastel dresses and tops, including those in winter white and cream. Shades of winter white are some of my absolute favorite colors, especially for wintertime.

Other trends from fall 2015 collections include chunky knits and turtlenecks. This sweater is the combination of all of these elements. Glamour magazine comes in clutch with a list of wearable runway trends. They’ve broken it down so it’s relatable and accessible to your everyday Fashionista.

For my look, I included a cropped chunky sweater in winter cream. I chose to pair it with my favorite pair of destroyed black jeans. I’ve been super into destroyed jeans lately. They add a touch of grunge to any otherwise clean-cute look, which is always my goal. Technically these jeans aren’t even high-waisted, but I chose to wear them with this cropped sweater anyway. That’s a huge perk of having a short waist—you can wear cropped shirts with any pair of jeans and no one will even know the difference.

To finish off this look, I added a fringe bag, watch and army green jacket. In Florida, a jacket is hardly ever necessary, but that’s why I love this jacket, it’s so thin and versatile. I’m also obsessed with this army green/khaki color. It’s my favorite neutral and goes with essentially every outfit. I also chose to throw on my rose gold Michael Kors watch. This watch is like my child and hardly ever leaves my wrist. As for the bag, this was one of my best finds when I was abroad in London. One of my favorite items in my closet by far.
