Outerwear Essentials


When it comes to this time of year, it can be difficult to bundle up while still looking chic.  When I moved to New York, one of the first friends I made told me, "On the coldest days, all that matters is having cute outerwear because no one will see anything else."  And I quickly learned how right she was!  So I have put together three affordable looks below using the most essential winter pieces...and I included different styles since I know not everyone lives in a snowy climate.  Now is a great time to buy these types of items since most stores have them marked down to try & make room for spring arrivals.


THREE: ASOS Parka* // Reebok Snood // Eddie Bauer Boots // MICHAEL Michael Kors Gloves

This is probably the first year that I have really embraced heavier coats. There are definitely some great choices out there this Winter - making it easy to be fashionable with function. I love the Asos coat featured, and what a great price!

I definitely gravitate toward the third look, even though I live in a snowy climate and the third look's boots aren't exactly ice-friendly! The lengths we go to to look good for our style blogs! ;)

These are all so cute. I like the 2nd and 3rd options the best. We definitely don't need coats here today. It's short sleeve weather today!

Kimberly - your post couldn't have come at a better time. As I was trudging my way to work this morning through 6 inches of snow, I couldn't help but think that if I have to do this that there must be a way more stylish way. haha. :) I LOVE all of your choices. Have a great Thursday.

Amber said...

Love them! I have an important question: what is the difference between a snood and an infinity scarf? Thank you :)

TaraMixandMatch said...

Cute! I love coat one, but am definitely way to short to pull it off :)

Kimberly said...

Hi Amber, a snood is the same thing as an infinity scarf - just a different way to say it! :)

xo,
Kimberly
