When you live close to the equator, winter is pretty unpredictable. You may get lucky with a chilly day here or there, but overall you can pretty much expect to sweat all year long. But for those of us that live for cute winter accessories and a variety of ensembles, it can be difficult to put together an outfit in January that doesn’t make you feel like you are in a sweat suit. One of my favorite ways to incorporate a winter feel is to wear a classic pair of sheer black seemed leggings. They are still thin and breathable but also differentiate your outfit from any other season of the year!
These tights are such a cute and cheap way to to spruce up a winter outfit. I literally got a 3 pack from Amazon for only $15! Plus it was Prime baby. *emoji jazz hands* I especially like the tights with the seam in the back because I think they really elongate your legs and accentuates what you got, girl. Who doesn't want to feel like a 6 foot supermodel? I definitely do.
Reused my Chanel ribbon for this shoot to hold my hair to the side and out of the way. I love the way the ribbon really adds an easy, feminine detail while looking easy and as if I'm not trying too hard. To get this look I took about 10 minutes to curl 2 inch sections of my hair with my straightener, tied my hair to the side with the ribbon, and made sure to leave a few mid length pieces around my face to not look too forced. Voila! Took less than 15 minutes start to finish.
Thanks so much for reading! Always happy to hear suggestions and comments, would love to know how you look cool for winter in the comments section below!
Diane Von Furstenberg is definitely high on my list of favorite brands. Her pieces are classic (im looking at you wrap dress!) and so well made that they will last a lifetime. Of course with any beautiful brand comes a high price tag. A new DVF wrap dress will set you back ATLEAST $300!
And on that note, I have no shame to admit that every piece of DVF I own has been bought secondhand. With any thrift purchase, especially from a source that doesn't authenticate (i.e. eBay), you will want to know what to look for to ensure you are not buying anything knockoff. Keep scrolling to learn a few BIG tips and tricks when buying your new to you DVF!
