I’m not a big shopper. Quite the contrary. After four years of doing GYPO Style Challenges, my wardrobe is smaller than ever. Even though I have less, I also have more of what I love – pieces I wear season after season that create easy outfits that work for my lifestyle.
With the changing of the seasons, I have added a few new trendy tops and accessories and replaced some of my staples – like coats, shoes, and pants.
In preparation for the Winter Seasonal Style Challenge, I did a little “damage”. Today I’m sharing how to dress for the cold fashionably, with some of my recent purchases
How to Dress for the Cold Fashionably Outfit #1
Pastels are downright magical for winter. When I saw this light pink floral top with a gathered bottom, I knew it was a MUST HAVE. These cords add another soft texture to the mix. Even though the color is called silver shadow, they look more pale blue to me in person. This pearl statement necklace is really heavy and well made. It elevates the whole outfit for a casual holiday party. Finish it all out with these super comfy taupe booties.
It was love at first sight when I spied this GORGEOUS velvet puffer vest. Seriously the quality on it is amazing, it’s even prettier in person. It takes the outfit up another notch! If you get just one new item this winter, let this be it. I promise you’ll love it as much as I do.
How to Dress for the Cold Fashionably Outfit #2
My black turtleneck got more wear than almost anything else in my closet last year. The funny thing is this is a really inexpensive one I found on Amazon last year and it’s held up beautifully wash after wash without stretching or fading. I love the look of it paired up with winter white cords, a blue agate pendant necklace, and leopard booties.
One of my “splurge” purchases this year was on a good wool topcoat. I’ve always dreamed of owning one of these classic beauties in camel. This is a purchase that will last for many years and is totally worth the price tag.
How to Dress for the Cold Fashionably Outfit #3
See the wrinkles and general dishevelment of my cold shoulder sweater in this pic? That’s because it’s wet after it’s second washing this week because I CAN’T STOP wearing it! #keepingitreal It looks much better when dry. Just take my word for it, you’ll love it! Cold shoulder and off the shoulder are big for winter and this is a fun way to try the trend.
Add in some skinny jeans (LOVE the zippers on this plum pair) and leopard ankle boots for a little edge, finish it off with a rose gold pendant necklace and pave earrings.
How to Dress for the Cold Fashionably Outfit #4
If you saw this week’s SAHMonday post, you saw three ways I paired up this shirt. The cinched sleeves on this olive top are what make it really special. Olive tops pair perfectly with gray released hem jeans. Finish it out with an agate pendant necklace and comfy gray ankle booties.
