WHAT TO WEAR: Cold Weather

As much as the winter wonderland outside might seem enchanting in theory, shivers, numb fingers and red noses aren’t as pleasant. The temperatures seem to dip further and further, the wind is positively biting and the snow is more slippery than ever. While this might paint a bleak picture, winter dressing doesn’t have to be.

This Fashionista dresses right for the frosty weather. She is wearing a gray knit sweater layered under a black wool peacoat. The loose layers are key to her ensemble to combat the bone chilling wind. Her chunky knit scarf serves as the perfect piece to shield her neck from the cold. Playing with proportions and maintaining balance is extremely important when it comes to layering, so as to avoid looking messy. This Fashionista pairs her chunky layers with a streamlined coat, leggings and tall skinny boots. This creates a silhouette that is classy, chic and still toasty.

Knits are the best for layering because they are as roomy and comfortable as they are sophisticated. This blush pink cardigan is soft, breezy and romantic while packing a serious punch over a sweater and jeans combination. This chunky turtleneck might look basic at first, but it’s sleeves and cutout details make it a conversation starter. For a work appropriate ensemble, this cable knit dress is cozy and elegant worn under a longline coat.

One Simple Change: To make a quick turnaround for a date, swap the flat boots for high-heeled booties to keep the look flirty and fresh, while staying warm.
