This Fashionista shows onlookers how to gracefully wear chunky layers without appearing in disarray. I spotted her vest from across the room and got lost in its cozy appeal. I so desperately wanted to wrap myself up in it. Her vest’s texture reminds me of the little joys that winter brings, and provoked an image of blissfully bundling up around the fire with a warm cup of tea. She creates a nice contrast with her knitted circle scarf resting atop her furry vest. She maintains sophistication with her tidy skinny jeans and sleek leather boots. Despite the weather, Darcy makes wearing winter clothing appetizing.

How To: To create a look like Darcy’s, focus on the art of layering. Additionally, gravitate towards unique textures that may be out of your element. This look wouldn’t be nearly as engaging if she wasn’t wearing unusual textures. Find a hefty circle scarf, both incredibly warm and versatile in their availability of colors. The show stopping piece of her ensemble is certainly her fabulous vest. Find one that is a bit oversized and has an irresistible softness. Lastly, find a dark washed skinny jean and pair them with a classic leather boot.
