When my alarm is going off and I hear the winter wind whistling against my window, the last thing I want to do is get out of my warm, cozy bed and venture into the freezing cold. Rather than sleep in, try layering under warm, chunky cable knits.
BOY. BY BAND OF OUTSIDERS sweater / ERDEM pants / DKNY coat / MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA booties / PROENZA SCHOULER bag / COACH fur scarf
A simple white collared shirt would be perfect under this Boy. by Band of Outsiders sweater (and yes, tuck it in.) To add some trendy individuality (oxymoron?) you can attach collar tips like these ones from ASOS:
The modern feel they have works best with the outfit above, mainly because this look is a little bit more relaxed:
ROMWE sweater $80 / RIVER ISLAND jeans $55 / UNTOLD coat $76 / OASAP boots $63 / TOPSHOP bag $68 / WHITE HOUSE BLACK MARKET faux fur scarf $50
This sweater has much more of a lumberjack vibe, obviously made chic by the surrounding pieces. Nonetheless it would look foolish with a collared shirt layered underneath. It could also potentially make the outfit seem like it’s trying too hard to look good. This look is trendy enough with it’s mixed prints (floral and houndstooth,) yet still understated. Always a good combination.
I have loved Kourtney Kardashian‘s cat eye sunglasses from the moment I saw them. Here she is wearing the Nikita by Tom Ford along with her fab riding boots:
I decided to pair the amazing frames with this Aztec-ish, DVF, body hugging dress. A fun way to mix things up is by pairing simple, streamline dresses like this one, with very structured accessories. The jacket is called the “long blazer” implying structure in it’s name. It works well with the dress because of the contrast. I like that when you take the coat off your shape looks that much more amazing because nobody was expecting it.
This clutch is amazing and very architectural. It pairs very well with the color blocked Louboutins. The earrings add the perfect, face framing pop of color. If you’re not a fan of color swap them out for something a little bit more understated (but how could you not like these?!) This outfit is very New York. Love it!

Pairing bold brights is very hip right now, which I love because bright, bold colors are one of my favorite things to wear! Wearing a blazer in a bright color is a great way to add a twist to a conventional classic. People often buy neutral clothes thinking they’ll go with everything, but beware… if everything you buy is neutral you could end up looking boring…and nobody wants that. These outfits are anything but!
This is a casual-dressy look that is a definite attention grabber. If you choose a bold shirt, stick to neutral accessories. If you wear a bold bag, keep your outfit neutral, like the one above. The key is to pick two bold colors. If you add in more then you risk looking like a clown…especially in a blazer as bright and yellow as this one.
I love this outfit because it’s sexy without trying too hard. If you wear bold colors, like the ones in the outfit above, you already look confident, which in-turn makes you look sexy. A long-sleeved, high-necked mini dress is chic and effortless.

This look reminds me of a more organic, slightly toned down Rachel Zoe. I love a high waisted pant with a crop top. With a look like this you could either add a belt or not, but I personally wanted to keep it slightly more simple since there is so much fabulousness already going on here.
Fur and the 70s look are both very trendy right now. But when dressing in multiple trends, it’s imperative not to go overboard with the look. Keep it relatively simple or you can start to look costumey, especially when you’re referencing a certain era in your outfit.
Check back tomorrow for a more classic corduroy look.
