WHAT TO WEAR: Winter

WHAT TO WEAR: Winter

Winter, especially in Syracuse, New York, is a time to bundle up, throw on an extra layer and head out the door. However, it can sometimes be difficult to stray from your plush black winter jacket and instead use different layers to created an outfit worthy of a Fashionista! That is why when I saw this Fashionista on campus; I was inspired by her ability to layer different sweaters to stay warm while still looking on trend! She started her look with a unique turtleneck white sweater that she found online. The surplice neckline of the sweater makes it the perfect modern turtleneck by not restricting her neckline as much. She then layered on a beautiful camel toned poncho. This layer to the outfit is a stylish way of keeping warm while adding dimension to the look. This Fashionista perfectly layered to keep warm, while avoiding the dreaded big black winter coat. She looks extremely RAD.

While her layering inspired me to write this article, it was her attention to detail and use of different textured materials that made me love this outfit! She started by pairing delicate gold jewelry with her outfit that you can purchase from her mother’s jewelry business. She also paired her outfit with gorgeous gray suede booties with a zipper detail. Then, she took the look to a whole new glamorous level by adding her Miu Miu sunglasses, a staple from her wardrobe, and her favorite fur mini backpack.

One Simple Change: To change this look from winter to a class look, all you would have to do is trade the mini fur backpack for your favorite school bag or tote and be on your way!
