ELAN Cowl Neck Sweater / Similar hat / J. Crew Mini Skirt / UO Tights / SUPERTRASH Ankle Boots
The moment I threw this capelet on I knew I had to pair it with brown ankle booties and a wide brimmed floppy hat. The rest was easy- I slipped into a black mini skirt and semi-sheer tights. I wanted to wear this outfit to meet my friend for coffee and a few hours of fashion talk. It would also make a great look for any Holiday party. I felt warm but stylish. One of the many challenges I find with colder weather, is being able to keep my sense of style, without having to hide it all way. Layers don't necessarily have to mean frumpy. Play with proportions. Mixing and matching loose fitting pieces with tighter, body conscious ones. Also, fall colors- chocolate browns, hunter greens, autumnal oranges and mod black, aren't the only colors you can dress in. Maybe try mixing in a pastel with bold black? Or purple with grey. Fashion is about experimentation. Above all though, comfort is key. Make sure to check out your final look in a full length mirror before stepping out. This way you'll never have to question if your shoes match your outfit. ;)
