WHAT TO WEAR: Winter

January 21st, 2016 at 2:00am

This winter on the East Coast has been unseasonably warm, making it almost impossible to decide what to wear. With temperatures finally starting to resemble normal winter weather, it is time to put away the tank tops and break out the sweaters.

One of the biggest struggles with winter fashion is trying to find clothes that are warm, but still formfitting and trendy. I don’t care who you are; nobody looks chic in a big puffy parka. This Fashionista looks effortlessly stylish while staying cozy at the same time.

Paired with some faux leather pants from Express, this wool turtleneck sweater looks both elegant and edgy. The sweater’s slouchy fit gives it a more relaxed look that goes great with any outfit. The bold monochromatic print is eye-catching and adds visual interest to this simple look. One of the biggest trends making a comeback this season is the turtleneck. Turtlenecks are perfect for winter because they are warm and add an element of sophistication to any outfit. Black leather Tory Burch ankle boots are the perfect addition to this look, giving it an element of ruggedness that ties in nicely with the faux leather pants.

This Fashionista keeps her accessories simple, as not to distract from her outfit. Some stackable gold rings and delicate beaded bracelets add just the right amount of detail.

One Simple Change: Want to take this look from a casual daytime outfit to a dressier nighttime look that is great for going to dinner with friends? Just swap the leather ankle boots for some over-the-knee high heel boots and you’re all set!
