Today there were some snow flurries in the afternoon, which of course just gives me all the more reason to put together a cold weather outfit. For this look I channeled a little bit of a Taylor Swift look with a striped shirt and denim as well as a little bit of grunge with the slouch coat and boots. All together I think it's a modest sophisticated look that that's perfect for this winter.
- Striped Top - If you're not stick thin, I know I'm not, wearing a striped top especially with horizontal stripes can be hard. A black and white color will help a bit as will straight sleeves and a rounded neck.
- Denim - To keep this look as classic as possible I paired it with jeans. I wanted to keep them free of rips or tears, a medium wash and skinny. However a pair boyfriend jeans would also look cute.
- Coat - A big part of this outfit, now that it's so cold out, is the coat. I went with a slouch coat which is as you can guess a little bit shapeless. I love the men's cut and the grey color. Perfect to contrast with.
- Bag - When you have a lot of neutral colors in an outfit it's fun to balance it out with bright pops of color. When paired with a lot of big pieces it's fun to do a smaller statement bag.
- Shoes - To finish this look off I went with a pair of masculine ish black boots. They're perfect for wearing over the skinny jeans.
With all the dark colors winter makeup can be a lot of fun to wear. Since this slouch coat is a bit masculine it's perfect to pair with cute girly makeup, and you can doll up a bit. I tried to incorporate a little bit the Fall / Winter runway as well.
- Lipstick - Dark lips are one of my favorite things from the runway this season. Of course to keep with the Taylor Swift vibe I made sure that it was a red lip color.
- Mascara - Thanks to the stripes a lot of eyeliner can make this look feel way too heavy. So for the eyes a dark mascara should be enough.
- Scarf - With the slouch coat featured in this outfit you need a scarf since it doesn't really have a collar. This circle scarf gives it structure. Unlike in the December Date Night Outfit I went with a plain black knit so there could be a bigger emphasis on the makeup.
