Style Tip: Your Stylist’s Guide to Pretty Picks for Chilly Days
The temperature is dropping, which makes it the perfect time to make a statement with your layers. Here are the key pieces for your winter wardrobe, and a some expert styling tips so you know how to pull it all together.
THE STATEMENT BLAZER
Every woman needs a stand out statement blazer, whether you’re heading to work or a fun night out. It adds the perfect pop to your standard jeans & t-shirt look. Cuff or scrunch your sleeves to ¾ length to create a more styled look and to show off an arm party. Keep it casual with flat boots or trendy tennis shoes. Take things to the next level with a sexy pair of heels for date night.
THE OVERSIZE CARDIGAN
We know that you ladies love a good pair of comfy leggings or skinny jeans. Pair either with a chunky, oversize cardigan this winter season for a cute and cozy movie-watching ensemble. Don’t just stick to solids either! Experiment with print or even some on-trend fringe. Slip on a fun pair of boots or booties when you’re headed out for errand running.
THE COOL CAPE
Look and feel fashion-forward in a fabulous cape sweater or blazer. Layer with a fitted long-sleeve shirt underneath so you stay toasty and keep from looking too bulky. Add some edge to the look with leather leggings because, let’s be honest, you can rock it. Elevate the look even more with a pair of over the knee boots. So chic!
THE FIELD JACKET
Football season is in full swing, ladies. Layer your team colors with a stylish field jacket for an effortless sporty look. Tuck your skinny jeans into riding boots or cuff them to ankle length with a pair of booties. This jacket will be your go-to layer for everything from soccer games to snow sledding.
THE LEOPARD LAYER
If you’ve spent anytime with me, you know how I love a good leopard. Add a touch of chic to your little black dress or a colorful blouse with a classy touch of leopard. Whether it’s a scarf, belt, cardigan, or pair of pumps…leopard is the answer! Accessorize with a wardrobe staple that never goes out of style.
THE FABULOUS FUR VEST
Our favorite cold weather accessory is the fur vest. Make your outfit look fabulous when you layer on the fur. Wear it with dresses, jeans, or waist defining skirts & flatter your figure with a statement belt. Invest in a staple color like black or brown, go for a fun colored fur, or embrace the newest fur trend: ombre!
THE ARM PARTY
One bracelet? Cute. Two bracelets? Fun! Three or more bracelets? Now that’s a party! Layers don’t just work with clothes. Layer on the bangles, statement cuffs, and more this season.
THE STATEMENT NECKLACE
Heavy winter layers call for a chunky statement necklace. Make sure the necklace compliments your neckline. For example, bib style necklaces work best with high necklines and long pendant necklaces work best with a v-neck. Statement necklaces are also a great way to break up monochromatic looks. If you’re wearing all black, add a pop of gold or tortoise. Use statement necklaces for a color contrast too. Wearing a pretty pink dress? Add a pop of turquoise!
THE BLANKET SCARF
We just can’t get enough of this season’s hottest accessory: the plaid blanket scarf. There are actually several ways to tie it. Ask us for a tutorial when requesting your next box. Wear it with your statement blazer, oversize cardigan, or field jacket. We love pairing it with colored denim, leather jackets, and dresses too.
