Winter has always been the bane of my inner fashionista. There is really only so much you can do to dress up when it’s below zero and the only thing between you and certain death is a puffy down parka.
Then, once in a while, a piece of clothing comes along that reminds you that you can be warm and look great. Thankfully, this season I found several fashion items that restored my faith in winter style.
The first is a leather jacket. While I’m not blessed to live in a climate where a cute, tailored jacket can be my only jacket, I did get this amazing Anthropologie jacket for Christmas (my friends and coworkers can vouch that I’ve been eyeing this jacket since August). In winter, it’s the perfect indoor jacket that’s short enough to wear with skirts or jeans to keep warm at my desk or inside a restaurant.
The second is a cashmere skirt. Wrapping your legs in the same kitteny softness as a luxury sweater is unbeatable when it comes to winter comfort. Why let your arms have all the fun of sweaters?
My ears get so cold when the windchill drops, but luckily knitted headbands that are cute and warm are very easy to find this winter. I found a cute one at Target, but they’re also readily available on Etsy.
I put the whole outfit together for a photo shoot at my local dog park, where I usually am every weekend anyway.
