The secret to staying warm and looking sharp is to start rather dull. One of my favorite cold-weather combinations begins with a crew neck cashmere sweater and straight leg jeans.
Another smart foundation secret is my Shapeez bra. I would never wear a sweater without the Ultimate Style bra. Use the code FIRSTTIMEBUYER10 for a $10 off discount entered at checkout.
If you, like me, have a chubby face, short neck, and an ample bust, you already know a crew neck is not your best choice. When the temperature dips into the twenties, warmth becomes my priority over style, but I still want to look acceptable.
When I add a wool blazer and a few accessories, that plain-Jane look suddenly has more character.
Keeping with the shades of navy, I added a stroller length coat, gloves, and Danish Sunglasses by Jamie Looks. The scarf is from my inventory. You could be the winner of your choice of a silk scarf on Monday. Leave me a comment below to be considered in the random drawing.
The coat hanging on the over the door hook in the background is the one I wore the day before. I never put garments back in the closet until they have had a day to dry completely and air out. Even the tiniest bit of moisture can lead to mildew or unpleasant odors that transfer to other garments.
One of my favorite purchases for this year was a handbag by Dooney & Bourke here. The size, shape, color, and attitude are the perfect complement to most of my casual looks. It’s now on sale!
