1. Neutral chunky sweater is a winter wardrobe must as it can be dressed down with a dark denim skinny jean and tall boots, or transitioned into a night-time look with a long flowy skirt and booties. The chunky sweater is comfy as well as classy.
2. Hats can be the right accessory to elevate your look as there are different ways to style your hat (Look for a future blog on the different ways to style your hat). Not only are hats super stylish, they are highly functional to keep your locks dry in the snowy months... Or if you're like me, a quick fix for those mornings when you need to be ready in a moment's notice.
3. A great pair of booties are perfect to wear with dresses, skirts, jumpsuits or dresses- basically, they can go with everything! Booties can take your look from slouchy basic to suave and sophisticated. A major bonus if they are waterproof like our Sorels!
4. The #1 rule in winter is to layer, layer, layer! But it will not matter what your bottom layer is if you cover it all in a classically beautiful, long coat. The length can cover your pajamas as you run into the grocery store, or be the cherry on top of an already amazing outfit.
5. Take your favorite slip skirt from summer to winter by adding booties and a chunky sweater, and create a fun holiday look. Or you can keep casual with flats and a cardigan for an easy office look.
6. The right leather bag is versatile for all seasons as well as being a timeless and quality piece to add just the right amount of stylish elegance to any outfit. The hard part is picking a size- they're like Pringles... once you pop, ya can't stop!

7. Once you find a pair of jeans that fit just right, you have found a best friend for life. A dark denim skinny jeans check off multiple boxes- are slimming on any body type; can be cuffed with booties and easier to stuff into tall boots; shows less staining- great for moms, women on the go, or holiday food mishaps. The possibilities are endless!
