Fashionably brought to you by Simon Malls
Fellow Style Mavens,
Sometimes winters chill can take a hold on our styling mojo. Even a fashionable gal can be left in a leggings-and-sweater rut, which is why I wanted to show you that even though it's cold outside, we can still find inspiration to dress up for any occasion… even just a day at the office!
If you missed the live segment on WTHR, you can view it here.
Actually I know for a fact that if you get up, dress up, and show up, people will notice your style efforts. You might even be rewarded with a positive comment that will uplift your mood. Who knew that taking the time to choose your outfit carefully would have so many benefits? These outfits styled from BCBG at The Fashion Mall at Keystone are the perfect example of how you can look hot even while the temperatures outside are cooling.
The pictured black and grey-silver sequined skirt and matching top above would be an office to drinks outfit, so if you are a busy working lady then this is a win-win for you, especially if traveling for business you can keep your luggage to a minimum with this duo. The cape blazer is the perfect addition and is slim lined enough to fit under your bigger winter overcoat.
In the past, winter wear has always shied away from white. But this season it has become the hottest neutral, highlighting the freshness of today's fashion. The slit sleeve and built-in decorative collar save you from having to load up on heavy jewelry with this dress. Keep your accessories simple and add a pop of color as I did with the fun box-clutch.
Skin tones like the blazer above are another hot neutral for this season, and for a night out the shorter length gold dress would be the perfect option. Again, the blazer is light enough to fit under your winter coat that you'll need on a chilly night.
My outfit above was from the "Runway" collection. You know I like to be different and this skirt and top combo struck me because of the black and color contrast. The all-black skirt would also work well paired with a light cashmere sweater. In all of the images above, you'll notice that the shoes are open toed, which you may find strange. But I like to take advantage of the time while the snow is still absent and show a little toe-polish color. After all, we'll all be in winter boots trudging through slush soon enough, so enjoy wearing peeps like these while you still can.
Happy shopping and bisous bisous,
