Winter style is a tricky thing my friends and the struggle can be real no matter where you live. For me, I love a good printed coat, booties, and scarves but all those items together here in SoCal can be a bit much when it’s only a “brisk” 72 degrees. I know, I know, I’m sure some of you are experiencing some severe envy when you think about the fact that I’m running around with bare legs, but let me tell you that I wish it was cool enough that I had to cover them up. So my solution to a warmer than typical winter is to try to find fun ways to incorporate layers and texture into my look despite the fact that I may spend the day in a puddle of sweat. So, simple trick here is to find light layers that can create interest and mimic your favorite cold weather outfits. In this instance I combined this simple sweater dress and paired it with this bold coat for a great contrast. For fun and pattern mix I added in the plaid shirt. The print works well with the both the color of the dress and the printed coat, but, since it’s only in the seventies here, I used it as an accessory and kept it tied around my waist. That way you get the effect of multiple layers without the fear of overheating.
