No, my style mavens, your eyes are not deceiving you: I am actually wearing color. However, this time my burgundy fixation has moved from my handbag to a look that is completely comprised of blocked sections of the lively hue.
Mother nature can be so brutal and indecisive this time of the year, which can lead to quite the challenge when it comes to getting dressed. And though I must admit that getting dressed for colder weather is not rocket science, the task can still be frustrating for any fashion enthusiast hoping to stay true to their aesthetic, and stay warm at the same time.
Layers, my style mavens. Layers not only give visual interest to any look, but they are also practical when it comes to moving from frigid temps to warmer interiors quickly and throughout the day. I prefer to layer my normal look with a longer coat that adds warmth instead of bulk. I also believe that adding a neck accessory, such as this scarf, is truly the ultimate style statement this season.
What are your favorite items to layer with during the colder months?

With each season there holds a promise of new trends, and with that, new accessories for us to swoon over and update our wardrobes with. One such accessory that has made some serious waves this fall is the skinny scarf. Wear the piece with a blazer and blouse, or to dress up a tee and leather jacket. Either way, just don’t expect any warmth from this piece, but instead depend on it to add a major punch of panache to your look.

Yes, my style mavens, leather weather is a real thing, and it is that time of the year again. However, instead of simply opting for the usual pants, vests and jackets for winter, add a leather skirt to you style arsenal instead. Don a midi version with the lace-up heels of the season, or layer a mini leather skirt over tights. Regardless of the length, pairing your leather confection with a comfy knit will keep the look completely effortless.
I’ve always been a huge advocate of fashion for a cause, because it not only brings about social change, but it also brings some substance back to an industry that is sometimes seen as frivolous and even pretentious. One company that is bringing about this change, and doing it globally, is Anchal Project.
You style mavens must know that I’m completely embracing a trend if I am willing to dive in and abandon my minimalist roots in pursuit of donning it. I’ve recently been experimenting with the nuevo 70’s aesthetic that has recently been so populat in this mad world of fashion, and I must admit that the fresh take on the decade has me feeling quite excited about fashion again.
