Final Touch: How to Dress for Winter Wonderland
It doesn’t matter if you’re more of a bunny slopes kind of girl than a black diamond aficionado. Mastering cold weather couture isn’t just for the Aspen and Alps set, especially since weaving down icy sidewalks is arguably way more challenging than tackling a few moguls. Urban jungles can still be winter wonderlands in their own right if you dress for the season.
The key to mastering subzero style is create a look that would be just as ready for an impromptu snowball fight as it would a surprise Arcade Fire show. 2013-14’s winter wear trend of rocking head-to-toe sexy tomboy outer wear both inside and outside is the new androgyny.
To get the look, invest in a winter coat that looks like the lovechild of a Karl Lagerfeld-designed Chanel ski jacket and a Hedi Slimane YSL grunge throwback coat. The fur trim on the hood of the military-inspired coat is unassumingly sexy, especially when worn overtop a casual striped T-shirt.
Up the hotness factor of the outfit by slipping on metallic black pants that are one part biker girl and two parts glam rock on its day off. Now accessorize:
Start with a black pompom-adorned toque and black-and-white reversible infinity scarf for an element of playfulness. Pick a bold leather purse with a black and gold chain strap and stud details to fuel the ensemble with another dose of rocker chic. Top of the look with black leather ALDO Surmas. The lined boots are sleek and black but were made for a winter wonderland, so you don’t have to sacrifice your style cred when you make a snow angel!
