Students at the University of Rhode Island are becoming masters of hurdling snow banks and trudging their way to class. There are seldom any chances to look up because of the snow coming down on us, or the challenge it causes as it accumulates. Luckily, I caught this Fashionista on one of the few days where the sun was shining and there were no class cancellations.
Mastering winter layers and accessories, she kept warm and stylish by pairing her headband with a pair of sunnies. The down puffy winter coat remained sleek with its black sheen and contrasting gold zipper. The look of this Juicy Couture coat can be achieved with this Northface offered in both black and graphite grey. The glossy finish gives the jacket an extra "oomph" compared to the typical puffy winter coat. I also took notice of the three buttons going up the sleeve, giving a little extra detail to the coat's overall appeal.
Wearing a pair of Hunter rain boots, this Fashionista added faux fur inserts that I mentioned in last week's post. The faux fur was a mix of grays and complimented the reptile-embossed, patteren rain boots. Hunter boots are not only stylish, but a quality boot that can get you through the rain and snow while keeping you dry. Get this Fashionista's look with the Hunter Carnaby Boa Tall Metallic boot.
By contrasting her knitted scarf in cool colors against her shiny coat, this Fashionista was able to stand out. The large scarf was effortlessly tossed around her neck and the tassels adorned at the bottom made the scarf look so chic. To keep warm in the frigid weather, she wore a powder blue headband that contrasted her dark brown hair. The way she wore it over her hair gave her a cool bohemian look, especially paired with tortoise colored sunglasses. Try a pair of simple and fun wayfarers form Forever21 or go Holly Golightly-esque with these gems.
Follow this Fashionista's footsteps and pile on the layers for style and warmth. Do not forget to take note of her chic bohemian vibe when you pair long straight hair with a thick headband and a pair of sunglasses.
Hint: To add edge to your winter look, why not try a glossy puffer vest paired with a leather jacket. By leaving the vest unzipped, you can show off the leather, keep warm, and give off a chic laid back vibe.
