It’s happened, the weather has finally dipped below 40 degrees and the look on the street is suddenly…bundled.
Just like that you’ve started to bypass the statement winter coat you bought in favor of something that will keep you warmer. You’ve pulled out your puffer coat and now you’re running around looking something like this:
Look, I get it. It’s cold outside and so naturally you want to stay warm and there’s no doubt those down feathers do the trick. But wanting to stay warm in a puffer coat doesn’t have to mean you have to throw your sense of fashion out the window.
Follow these 3 easy steps to stay stylish and warm this winter.
Step 1: Belt Your coat to give yourself a waist
Keep your feminine shape in your puffer coat by either shopping a coat that comes with a belt or by fastening one of your own belts around your waist.
Step 2: Give the look some color with a bright scarf and hat
It’s so tempting to go grey for both your scarf and hat but resist it and opt for some bright color instead. Why not a bright red hat mixed with a bright pink or yellow scarf? For a look that’s really luxe, wrap a long printed wool or silk scarf around your neck.
Step 3: Carry an unexpected camel colored handbag
We love the Florentine Domed Buckle Satchel from Dooney & Burke ($398) at Macy’s.
And just like that you’ve got a look that’s warm and stylish.
