Can you be fashionable AND warm?

As we get closer to winter’s official start (December 22, 2011) I find myself taking a little longer to get ready for work, church, birthday dinners, etc… No longer can I grab a sundress and sandals or a jumper, instead I’m glued to the weather channel wondering how to make my puffer jacket look sheik! Well, those of you who are like me, listen up.  Here are my suggestions on ways to be fashionable AND warm this winter. After all, there’s no way to look cute if you’re shivering from the cold!

  • Layering – This is the best way to withstand the chilly weather and the easiest way to remix some go-to pieces. A long sleeve cotton t-shirt can be one of the most versatile tops in your closet. In the spring these tees stand alone, but as the temperature drops try layering a wool blazer and a statement necklace. Another go-to winter piece is the smooth fitted cotton turtleneck. I suggest purchasing one in three essential colors: black, white, taupe, and brown. Similar to a tee, these can be layered under anything and the sleek fit is flattering on anyone.
  • Leather – Quite possibly my new favorite option for winter! From skinny pants, to pencil skirts, jackets, and shoes leather is everywhere. Need a break from your favorite jeans? Try slipping into leather pants. Need a great cover up for your wrap dress? Or maybe a go-to weekend jacket? A leather jacket works every time. Try alternating your favorite black pencil skirt with a leather version. It’s warmer and it’s on trend!
  • Knits – In the summer it seems you can never have too many cotton tees and tanks. In the winter you can never have too many knits! Take advantage of the new styles this season while stocking up on old classics. A great wrap sweater jacket, a few knit dresses, a heavy tunic, an ankle length knit skirt, a crotchet hat and matching scarf…….the list goes on and on. The possibilities are endless! Remember to choose the proper fit and shy away from baggy pieces.

  • Boots – Whether you prefer Uggs, ankle length, knee high, lace up styles, wedge booties, or riding boots they are the best way to keep your feet toasty without having to look like an Eskimo. Be sure to choose styles appropriate for the shape of your legs. Nothing is worse than a boot with too much/ too little space around the calves. Platform heels and the current chunkier heels make this season’s selections more comfortable.
