WHAT TO WEAR: Cold Weather

May 4th, 2015 at 2:10am

This article should probably start with a disclaimer: It really covers what to wear in cold California weather. April in Westwood has been surprisingly chilly this year. Temperatures have so far been consistently in the 60-degree range, with lots of winds to boot. So, what to wear when you don’t want to be stuck in winter bundles but want to stay comfortable? Swap your T-shirt for a lightweight sweater, and pair with your edgiest jeans and preppiest boots. Cold weather? More like cool weather!

Different washes of jeans come in and out of style, but this year has welcomed the reign of black skinny jeans. Edgy, slimming and equally as perfect with color and neutrals, they’re the best investment for year-round wear. This Fashionista knows the importance of finding a beloved and versatile fit. With more structure but the same flattering power as black leggings, these skinny jeans can hang with this season’s flared pants!

The Fashionista’s mixed neutral sweater would look great with other bottoms, too. On warmer days, pairing it with a short overalls, a bright skirt or linen pants would all be great options! By investing in a lightweight sweater that matches all your spring bottoms, you’ll prepare well for any occasion or levels of air conditioning and wind.

Finally, the Fashionista’s flat brown booties look comfortable and appropriate for spring. While she probably wore them in the winter also, they make the perfect transition shoe for any season. They could literally be worn with every outfit. Paired with a dress, romper or shorts, they’d look just as well-styled!
