Happy 2017 everyone! I just came back from a chilly NYC and Manhattan could not have treated me any better. As a native Texan, learning to adjust to the cold is not my strong suit. Here are a few outfits featuring this AMAZING Calvin Klein coat you can get here.
The key to dressing in the cold is layers. Even though I have a petite frame, I found ways to wear bigger jackets without ruining my outfit and making me look three times my size. In this post, you’ll see some outfits with layers, and some without, simply because I was shooting inside versus out in the cold. Look out for how I styled each outfit…hopefully it inspires you this winter!
Shopping in Bryant Park and the Rockefeller:
Featuring this delicious Matzah Brei (NYC locals… check them out here).
A great compromise to not wanting to wear jeans or leggings when it’s cold is tights and long thick socks. Here I played up textures by using glittery socks against sheer tights and denim. Small details like my flared sleeves and shoulders on this top allowed me to show off my style underneath a big coat; framing my silhouette so it doesn’t get lost in all the dark colors.

Seeing a Broadway Show:
This dress is made of sweatshirt material with velvet and sequin sleeves… I know can’t get any better than that! I paired it with some gray sheer tights and a black skirt, solely because I wanted the lace detail to pop out from underneath!

Here’s another example of layering in the city. We were lucky enough to have a warmer day where I was able to get away with a thick leather jacket. Moto-style jackets have been my go to look this fall and winter because they add some warmth and shape without the bulk of a parka. These leather jeggings had a panel of stitching on the side which made them more interesting than a normal black skinny jean.
