What to Wear: Winter Functionality

What to Wear: Winter Functionality

By Randi Astrid
As a Los Angeles native, I’m used to warm weather. However, while dealing with the frigid temperatures of the east coast, I developed a serious love for the concept of functional fashion. After all, I had to learn to be chic and warm all at the same time.

Here are some of my favorite functionally warm, fashion suggestions for the season:
Keep it casual in skinnies, riding boots, an oversized sweater and an eye-catching scarf. Separates like these can be mixed and matched through the winter months to create brand new looks.

You can find riding boots all over the place, but this SM New York “Riley” boot is great quality and will leave money left over for other wardrobe essentials. You can buy these at Sears for $34.99.
Oversized cardigans are the perfect staple piece and can be worn as a casual or dressy look. Belting these sweaters at the waist is a great way to dress them up. Oversized cardigans are a fab layering piece.
Now if you are having a hard time finding fun scarves check out www.forever21.com! They have great scarves at awesome prices!

I hope that these items provided a few ideas and a little inspiration for you. But as always, the most important rules in fashion are to be creative and be YOU!
