WHAT TO WEAR: Brunch

This Fashionista has learned over the years that the true key to success is a delicious weekend brunch. She swears by gathering up her closest friends and heading to a local brunch spot, while of course taking advantage of the opportunity to look fabulous.

On this blue-skied Sunday, this Fashionista was rocking a cute and casual winter ensemble. Her main focus, which she built the entire look around, was her neutral cowl neck sweater. As a sweater connoisseur, she loves the cowl-neck look due to its promise of providing warmth, while still offering a very stylish and classy appearance. She then layered on a navy vest featuring a faux leather insert on the shoulders and back. To complement the hint of leather on the vest, she wore her favorite Steve Madden riding boots and carried a matching Coach wristlet.

To enhance any ensemble, our Fashionista turns to the art that is accessorizing. Her favorite type of accessory, and the type she wears most often due to its versatility, is a bracelet. She loves the look of mixing metals and finds that it is easiest to accomplish with bracelets. Especially with the cowl neck sweater, she advises to stray from a statement necklace, and rather focus on making a statement elsewhere. Here she shows off her favorite Alex and Ani charm to add a touch of gold, while her left hand works in multiple silver bangles.

One Simple Change: Looking to make more of a feminine and formal statement? Swap out the jeans with a cute mini skirt, tuck in the front of the sweater and add some tights to enhance the girly flair of the outfit.
