WHAT TO WEAR: Cozy Up Your Winter Style

Warm tea. Good books. Soft pillows. Fine company.

The holidays are all about being cozy wherever you are, and spending time with the people who matter most. Whether you’re spending the winter days cuddled up inside or braving the weather and exploring new places, you’ll want to be both comfortable and stylish. Add a group of great people to the mix and you’re sure to make the most of the cold months!

This Fashionista spent the day exploring a new part of Washington, D.C., which is usually very chilly during the winter. She dressed perfectly for the icy breeze by layering tons of different pieces. The best part is that no matter which layer she adds or removes, her outfit is always trendy.

With good basics, you’ll have endless options. This Fashionista knows the key to making basics work to their highest fashion capabilities is to mix them all together and throw simple jewelry on top. It’s sweater weather for sure so the cold shoulder top and warm fuzzy vest are great staples for hanging out inside or a slightly warmer day. When it’s really cold out, throwing on a fabulous, detailed coat can spice up an outfit. The patched jeans and simple booties add a little more flare to the look, completing the perfect cold-weather outfit.

If you’re in need of more layers and basics to add to your ever-growing wardrobe, call a group of your closest friends and make a day of it! Plan a fun brunch with the girls and then spend the afternoon wandering the best stores in town. Even if you don’t need more clothes (impossible), hit up the mall because it’s shop o’clock everywhere.
