Hello, my stylish friends! I always had an affinity for eclectic details and quirky finishes. When I’m in a rush, I throw on simple, timeless neutral clothes topped off with statement pieces. Pictured above are my favorite bib necklace and knee-high, lace-up boots. I forget where I purchased the boots from, but I remember wanting to try this controversial trend. I surprisingly liked the look!
The beginning of December felt mentally and physically draining. Wrapping up the fall semester of my junior year (side note: how am I already in my third year of college?), I’m itching for the holidays! 2020 fashion translated to track shorts or leggings paired with a hoodie, but despite the lack of events, I may dress up for the holidays for the sake of feeling put-together. Pre-COVID, I vividly remember the challenge of dressing for mid-late fall weather in the mid-Atlantic region. Some days, I wore chunky sweaters for crisp, cool afternoons, whereas other days I bundled up wearing full winter gear to survive frigid mornings. We must also note Delaware’s sporadic showers when we see sudden, unexpected showers.
My solution? LAYERS (and many of them!). For instance, I love my skirts but can’t stroll out with bare legs in freezing temperatures. Key layers include:
- Oversized outwear
- Semi-opaque tights
- Thick socks
- Denim and leather jackets
- Medium-sized handbag (to hold light layers for when you feel hot)
