The art to Winter dressing is in layering without losing your style. As evidenced by this street snap, the key to making it work is choosing bold prints, bright color, and warm texture — not to mention careful proportions. Sure, it seems like a lot to remember, but striking the right balance is easier than you think. First, go for the unexpected: look for a button-down in a beautiful silky finish and floral print, and then add in the layers. Pull on a cozy knit and your favorite skinnies (the staples we all have lurking in our closets). As for the rest, set the look apart with a shearling-lined jacket — it's the cool-girl version of Winter outerwear — and then step into your everyday ankle boots and finish with a pop of color in hand via a brilliantly hued crossbody bag. It may mean defying your automated response to reach for Winter plaid, that puffer jacket, or your worn leather satchel, but we promise this take on seasonal dressing is unexpected in the best way possible — and is just as sure to keep you warm.
