A Skater Dress in Winter? ABSOLUTELY!

When you think of winter fashion, what comes to mind? Most people think, sweater weather. But, just because it’s cold out doesn’t mean you need to stick to a wardrobe of sweaters, leggings and boots.  One of my favorite things about fashion is being able to transition pieces from season to season.  The skater dress might seem like an unlikely option for cold weather attire but with some careful styling and layering, it’s a great transitional piece.

Little Red Dress

We have all heard of the little black dress or LBD, that is an essential in every woman's wardrobe, but have you heard of the little red dress (LRD)? The LRD is just as important; after all, Audrey Hepburn did say, "There is a shade of red for every woman."

Did you know that colors carry a lot of emotions?

According to color meanings dot com ,"When you want to make a statement and stand out in a crowd, red should definitely be your first pick. You are sure to be a show stopper in something like this red hot lace cocktail dress.", people tend to gamble and take risks more under red lights? It is no wonder this is the predominant color choice in casino atmospheres. If you are drawn to red clothing colors, then it indicates extroversion, passion, energy, and a personality type that is driven to live fully. People who like red clothes also tend to be aggressive, energetic, and quick in releasing their emotions. Red clothing colors indicate a person who is quick in judging people and expressing their opinions. When going for a job interview, it is best to stay away from this color as it can convey the wrong message to the interviewer. But If you are looking to make a statement and stand out in a crowd, then red should definitely be your first pick. You are sure to be a show stopper in something like this red hot lace cocktail dress.

Fly away with me....I am wearing a red hot lace cocktail dress paired with gold lace-up heals from Aldo Shoes and accessorized with Ralph Lauren Diamond earrings. This dress is perfect for a holiday party, special occasion, a sexy date night or night out with your girls. This dress pairs perfectly with your favorite black blazer for a more casual look. You can also try a fur shrug for a more sophisticated look for that evening out.  With the holidays around the corner, you should start shopping for your LRD now!

Age Old Rules Don’t Apply

 

I am all for following the rules but not when it comes to fashion.  I believe that one’s wardrobe should be a reflection of their own personal style.  The age old rule that you can’t wear white after Labor Day is totally outdated. Fashion is ever changing and it doesn’t have to follow rules. The choice to wear white during any season is yours.

This look is just an example of how you can wear white during the winter months. I’m featuring white skinny jeans by BLANKNYC, a cream colored top from Express and layered with a denim button down and a super soft, beige, faux fur, vest (both staple pieces in my wardrobe).

It’s all about layering, especially with this wacky New York weather. When it’s 70 degrees one day and 20 degrees the next, you need to be prepared for anything, and layering is the answer. Simply add or take away a layer depending on the weather.  This denim button down is so versatile. It can be worn over a flannel, a tee shirt, on it’s own, or a dress….so basically anything. I even take it on vacation with me and throw  it on over my swimsuit by the pool.

Get your white on and layer away!

“Fashion wasn’t what you wore someplace anymore; it was the whole reason for going.” —Andy Warhol
