WHAT TO WEAR: Cold Weather

It’s January and the cute weatherman tells you there is going to be a warm front this upcoming week. The excitement flows through your whole body. You think, maybe you can finally wear your new Birkenstocks! A break from your normal parka and UGGs staple, but wait, what…is that rain? Ugh.

Sometimes gloomy weather days cause us to be unmotivated when it comes to looking our best. But don’t let the rain get you down! Take some tips from this Fashionista, who stayed dry while looking flawless from head to toe.

This Fashionista takes a nice spin on an earthy color palette by adding some bold prints and embroidery. First, her skirt shows us that floral is not just a spring pattern. By keeping the colors at a minimum, and pairing it with a basic crop top, she brings this look right into the heart of winter. And how can we ignore this fabulous military-inspired jacket? Its bold and beautiful detailing put this Fashionista’s outerwear game on another level. Perfect for a rainy day!

Ankle booties are a great shoe compromise for horrible weather: full foot coverage with a bit of pizzazz. They allow for stability, traipsing through the rain with an added bonus of a short heel that gives your calves that extra workout you skipped at the gym last week. These Steve Madden booties are especially perfect for this earth tone inspired Fashionista because of the fringe detail. So, don’t be afraid to be bold in the rain. Save the sweatpants and hoodie for a later date.

One Simple Change: A couple months later you see the sun has emerged from the clouds and you want to wear this beautiful outfit again? No problem! Ditch the umbrella and throw on some big round sunnies to complete the look. Now, you’re all set to go!
