WHAT TO WEAR: Baby, It’s Cold (and Fly) Outside

Although we can all admit that the cold sucks, winter isn’t all that bad—especially for style. Winter brings us ice skating, hot chocolate, snowball fights, the holidays and endless winter style options. For some of us, comfort and warmth comes before style when dressing around this time of year. For some of us, style comes before warmth, comfort and sanity. There are so many options for cold weather accessories that you are still able to express yourself in these frigid temperatures.

Outerwear is the simplest way to express your style during the winter. A well-fitted coat can accentuate your shape during a time when bulk is king. Bombers, parkas and puffers are some of the coat styles that appeal to different personalities, body types and one’s functionality/warmth desires. This winter find your style for the season based on your style and warmth preference and build from there. Trust me, the options are endless!

This Fashionista decided to approach winter style inspired by streetwear. Bomber jackets were the outerwear choice of 2016, and I find they are absolutely everywhere. Bomber jackets has its origins in the military, but it has evolved into an essential outerwear and street style piece. Patches are one of the best accessories for a bomber, since it sets itself apart and is just a nice touch. The patches on this jacket are right over the heart and on the sleeve, and the design on the back is large and eye catching. It’s unique compared to other jackets on the market and is vintage/military inspired.

Sweatpants have definitely evolved since the introduction of the jogger. Sweats are no longer just for gym class and lounging, the right fit and cut can be chic and cool. Boots are another essential this season and will never go out of style. These red boots draw your attention downwards, which is an advantage because all someone’s eyes can do is look up, giving your outfit some attention too. This outfit is just an easy example of how you can translate your style inspirations into winter looks, finding a balance between style and comfort that fits you.
