We are officially in the thick of a cold, cold winter. But that doesn’t mean we can’t be fashionable while we’re trying to keep warm, right? Here are some of my picks for staying cozy without giving up style.
J. Crew Chateau Parka
OK, so it seems everyone and their mother has this coat, but there’s a good reason – it’s a great coat! Not only is it cute, but it also keeps you warm without the bulk. And I for one am so sick of those black puffy coats anyway! It comes in a ton of color options too. One word of advice – go one size down from your usual size as it’s quite roomy.
Another ubiquitous trend but a necessity. A colorful scarf can make a neutral coat pop! I pair my gray coat with a blue/orange knitted scarf and receive so many compliments – another boost to the system during the cold winter months!
Finally, we all need a stylish and warm pair of boots. And while I am guilty of wearing that pair, there are so many other good choices out there.
How do you keep your sense of style in the cold?
I can feel it – Spring is in the air! Even though we are supposed to get snow today, but that’s another story. I am choosing to look ahead to the warmer weather and all of the activities I’m looking forward to including taking Lady M on some outdoor activities, walks in NYC and outdoor brunches.
I am also looking forward to Spring fashions, as I won’t be in maternity clothes this year! Here are some of the items I’m hoping will become new staples in my wardrobe:
This dress from Banana Republic has a fun graphic pattern in bright colors. It would look perfect with a pair of green pumps in my closet!
I’m always on the hunt for new sandals and this Tildon pair are fancy enough for night, but the wedge makes them casual enough for the day. You can pair them with so many types of outfits.
Liberty of London always has fun, colorful floral prints and they have now teamed up for a collection with J. Crew. This skirt’s bright pops of color makes me long for warm, sunny days.
