In my opinion, January is the peak time for winter-wear. It’s post-holiday, the weather is generally gloomy, and you’re just looking for jeans and cozy sweaters in order to bundle up. Well, bundle up is what I did as soon as I discovered this super soft, semi-slouchy sweater from Rag & Bone. One of my favorite brands for casual wear- Rag & Bone always gets it right.
I accentuated the horizontal stripes at the bottom of the sweater with, you guessed it…more stripes! These Topshop jeans (currently on sale) have a vertical stripe down the side that’s both sporty and flattering!
Pink is my favorite color. Always has been, and I’m thinking it might aways be. In the past, I’ve been worried about looking too girly, or too saccharine – but with the resurgence of “millennial pink” I’m embracing my favorite shade!
Another trend that I’ve begun to love is the dressing in monochrome, one of various shades of the same color. So why not combine my two loves in this latest outfit!
Ironically, I feel wearing ALL pink adds more caché and less sweetness than a single pink piece. So I went all out! These gorgeous pink pants from Topshop were an absolute steal, and the sweater is the softest cashmere you’ll ever feel and less than $70 to boot!
I splurged a bit on the coat, but I feel that it’s worth it given the perfect shade of pastel pink and my tendency to wear coats for many years to come! Walking around the city, I felt heads turn to see a woman in an entirely bubblegum outfit…but in a good way! Lastly, I topped my look with a Parisian-inspired beret to add an extra layer of chic. What do you dolls think? Would you rock an entirely pink look?
As a previous New Yorker, black is definitely the go-to in my wadrobe, but since I’m back down South, I’ve loved experimenting with color more. However, one my favorite looks has got to be the absence of color… I’m talking all white. Winter white to be exact! Last year, I shared one of my favorite winter outfits – and this year I’m sharing a new take on the monochromatic look!
Instead of simply throwing on a sweater, this year I opted for a tissue turtleneck (so soft and comfy) and a winter white blazer! People may think a white or cream blazer is hard to pull off, but I almost love it more than a black blazer. It’s still easy to pair, not over the top, BUT you stand out! It looks fresh, and believe me…it’s unique and classic at the same time.
While I have a cream blazer I love, this double-breasted one from Veronica Beard brings the glam! I love the gold buttons (they almost look like Balmain) and the black detailing on the collar is such a nice touch! Of course, I love to be business on top and rock and roll below, so I paired my look with my go-to distressed jeans from TopShop. These jeans run about $80 and they’ve lasted me season after season (as you can see from last year’s post).
So what do you dolls think? Would you rock all white this season?
