As you all could probably guess, I did not spot this Fashionista on Comm Ave. I am home for the holidays in San Diego, and let me tell you – nothing says Happy New Year's quite like palm trees.
All you East Coasters are all bundled up in your heavy outerwear, but underneath your bulky coat, it is easy to look stylish and feel comfortable at the same time. This Fashionista is cozy and cute in her lightly layered look. Her long red cardigan paired with a basic tank top and scarf is perfect for 60 degree SoCal weather. Her black skinny jeans tucked into tall black leather boots make her legs look long and lean. Between her studded bag and the Ray Ban sunglasses, her outfit has a hip, quirky vibe.
This look is causal and cool for California winters, but let’s be real here: Boston is freezing. In order for this ensemble to withstand a snowstorm, we are going to have tweak it a bit. First order of business: swap out those leather boots for a pair of stylish, water-resistant snow boots. Second step: throw on a practical, thick trench coat. Third: top it off with knit accessories to keep you extra warm. Some of my favorites include:
1. Wintermallows Headwrap from Anthropologie
2. Cooperative Jacquard Convertible Gloves from Urban Outfitters
3. Beautiful Knit Scarf from Forever 21 (Side note: Brace yourselves, Fashionistas. The new Forever 21 on Newbury St. will be open upon our return to school after break!)
Whether you call a warm climate or cold climate home, layers are always chic. Just don’t forget that trench coat when we get back to school on January 18.
