Although it has felt like spring here over the past few days, my outfits have still consisted of a lot of layers. Maybe the freezing cold weather trained me to not let myself leave the house without a minimum of three layers on. With that said, the focal point of any great winter outfit is a great coat. I tend to like a coat that make a statement on its own–whether it has a bold print, bright colour or fun texture. It makes putting an outfit together super simple. It’s like finding the perfect statement necklace that then all you need is to throw on a simple t-shirt and voila, a grand outfit is created! I picked up this fuzzy faux fur coat just before Christmas. Unfortunately I was unable to find the link to it. I have linked some similar coats below along with a variety of others! What are your thoughts on coats that make a statement?
Everyone knows that sweaters are a staple, especially during the winter months. There is no doubt that day after day in the same old style of sweaters, they can definitely become a bit repetitive and let’s be honest, boring. But this sweater completely stands out. I love it’s unique ruffle sleeves that give it a lot of personality. It’s short silhouette is very flattering on a high waisted bottoms, like this pair of denim or even a high waisted skirt (I wore it paired with a metallic skirt for NYE). What details draw you to specific sweaters?
Winter outfits can be tricky. On days when it is absolutely freezing, it’s easy to snuggle up in 6 different layers for the ultimate warmth. And as easy as it is to snuggle up in multiple layers, it is just as easy to let your winter outfits become frumpy. I love wearing dresses year round, and shockingly that includes the winter months too. But there is no way I would step out the door in -20 degree weather with any bare skin. That’s why tights are actually a lifesaver to me during those cold months to keep me nice and toasty while still looking stylish. Finding cute patterned ones never hurts either. I adore this tights and dress combo. Although they may be fairy simple, they keep me feeling ultra stylish, no matter the weather.
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have seen me raving about my new love for hair perfume. Honestly, until I was gifted hair perfume I never knew there was such a thing. Hair perfume is non damaging to hair like other perfumes may be. This scent from Chanel is so soft and feminine, it’s the perfect topper to a great outfit.
