Say hello to winter, a time filled with oversized scarfs and endless amounts of coffee to keep you warm. This Fashionista is starting the season off right with closet staples that keep her look on trend. Navy has always been a favorite of mine; it is close enough to black, making it neutral, while also providing a pop of color that keeps an outfit exciting. With accents of red, this Fashionista’s blanket scarf is perfect for either a coffee date or just a day out with the girls during these chilly winter months.

Blanket scarves are all the rage this season, seen in magazine spreads and blogs all over the world. Blanket scarves have become an everyday necessity in the winter and come in solids as well as patterns. During the colder months, it’s about layering, as you have to find a perfect balance of being practical and staying warm. This Fashionista has it down, pairing her blanket scarf with a lightweight sweater underneath a bulkier military jacket. She then slipped into her favorite pair of jeans (you can cuff the bottoms about an inch above your booties for a more relaxed vibe). Opt for a pair of ankle booties with a chunkier heel so you have more support for longer days. My go-to is a pair of classic taupe booties that I have worn more than I care to admit. Wrap up your look with some tousled waves and keep the makeup natural and effortless.

One Simple Change: For a day to night look, swap out the sweater for a fitted sweater dress and add tights and a peacoat. Throw on your favorite blanket scarf and swipe on a raspberry lip color. Grab some over-the-knee lace-up black boots and you are set for whatever life may throw at you.
