Wow Em' This Winter
Deets: Cropped H&M black aviator bomber jacket w/ sheerling (thrifted), long, black, red and tan aztec print maxi cover up (thrifted), worn layered over a black ribbed turtleneck, paired with camel riding leggings with leather panels (from Forever 21), red cage peeptoe booties (Charlotte Russe)
Deets: Chocolate brown corduroy paperboy cap from Claire's, denim button up top and wool herringbone skirt thrifted and Hot Kiss over the knee riding boots. Please note, it was a little warmer this day so I did not feel the tights were necessary, but you can always add a pair of thick tights if you see fit.
Hello chickadees! I hope everyone enjoyed their friends and family over the past few days! Being from Arizona, I didn't get too many opportunities to appreciate winter wear. Of course I know I know I know the priority is to be warm (blah). Who says you cannot be warm and cute?! This week, I want to give you a few tips on wowing the masses with different silhouettes this winter.
LAYER, LAYER, LAYER
Distressed jeans over funky footed tights, long Johns or thick printed leggings.
Kimono or chunky sweater over a jumpsuit
Try a long maxi or cover up layered over a sweater dress
Deets: Forest green and black long maxi top on clearance at Target, thick forest green sweater dress from Forever 21 (ironically, I've probably had it since I was 21 lol), black, distressed over the knee boots from Charlotte Russe
Wear a winter weight skirt with a denim top or a thermal, thick footed tights, knee boots and a warm hat or scarf
Jumpsuit over leggings/long Johns or try a long sleeved top in a contrasting or monochromatic shade.
Have a pair of shorts you can't fathom doing without for 3 months? Winterize them with layers...think tights, boots, scarves, hats, jackets, chunky sweaters!
Sweater dress with thick Nordic leggings and knee boots or over the knee boots and a faux vest
A cute, quick and chic go-to outfit for me is a comfy sweater worn over a button up top, liquid leggings, boots and a fun hat.

Ultimately, when dressing for a cold day I always plan my cute outfit and then how to practically and functionally layer as many pieces as possible so I will be warm. You also have to keep in mind if it's snowing or icy you will need flat, practical shoes with grip. I hope some of these tips help you take your winter wear to the next level! What are your fave winter wardrobe ideas? Regardless of what you do just be true to YOU. Don't be scared to try something a little different while being sure to emphasize the things that are uniquely you! Stylishly you, KJ!
