Work. Work. Work. Work. It’s the start of the semester and all you beautiful Fashionista’s can think about is how much your next textbook is going to cost. Well class is in session, Professor J.C.G. is here to layer you up with bold prints, knee-high boots and leather jackets. Grab your fashion notebook and turn to page 2016.

First off, let’s talk about how great layers look when paired with the right leather jacket and knee-high boot. Can you say trendy? This combo is waiting right in your closet, very accessible and easy to do. It’s super cold out and today is the day you want fashion to keep you warm and not that oversized coat you bought last winter.

Now that we have got that out of the way, there are three lessons you must know for winter fashion. Your first lesson is layer up. Layers and knee-high boots are at the top of my list for winter-wear obsessions. You can grab your oversized sweater that hangs just below your waist and feels super comfy. Grab your leather jacket and faux fur vest and you have yourself a winter obsession. Up next we have is lesson two, knee-high boots. Over-the-knee boots are a must-have this winter and nothing is stopping you. Chances are you were already thinking it and just needed something to follow suit. Last but not least we have lesson three, add some color. You can pull out your quilted coat and drape it over your shoulders. Add a cute necklace to this outfit and your look is complete.

This Fashionista is sporting an oversized white turtleneck, silver chained necklace, black leather jacket, black faux leather tote, black knee-high boots, light denim jeans and a green quilted coat.

Lastly, keep everything simple. The layered look can speak for itself. Your knee-high boots keep your legs looking longer and adding a pop of color to such a simple look adds fashion flavor. To avoid cluttering your layers, be sure to only pick three of your favorite things: jacket, sweater and coat.

One Simple Change: Winter has just begun and yes class is still in session. Keep this look in mind, as you wake up for your 10:00 am class. It was Coco Chanel who said, “In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”
