Funky Sweater

Ugly sweater parties were never our thing. Crazy sweaters in a rainbow of colors are winter fashion staples that any girl with street cred can pull off. Chunky knits and nerd-like patterns have us swooning from afar. Take a look at the Prada knits on Shop Style and Mira Mikati on Net-a-Porter. There are some real gems in there. Classy and sassy!

A Splash of Rouge

We asked the age old question, “how much red is too much?” this month. Add at least a splash of vibrance to your winter fashion look this season. Whether it’s the right bag, or a dazzling pair of footwear, we’ll leave to your discretion. Thanks to Wonder Woman being the hit flick for Fall, it’s the color most on trend.

Vintage Purse M’Lady

Speaking of purses, gotta’ get that updated as well. Splurge on a vintage beauty and you won’t need much else to round out your winter fashion ensemble. Suckers for wooden handles and customized details, we love just about every single bag you can find on Lisa Says Gah’s Shop. Our favs are from Georgia Jay and St.Agni. Take a look at our straw purse cover from Spring and find all of those treasures in the Shop. Legitimacy comes with a price, so start singing “Santa, Baby” while you add merchandise to your cart.

Fast Faux Fur

Number one on your list should be a faux fur coat. A solid fur gives your jeans and Chuck Taylor’s the winter fashion go ahead. Did you find the proper update for this season in our fur coat article last week? Well, add cheetah or leopard to the list. We like the length and shapes of the Vince Camuto or the Nasty Gal No Hard Felines leopard faux furs. Sexy animal prints are the most versatile in the stuffed animal kingdom.

When I went completely bonkers for 90’s hip hop fashion, I gave Cazal sunglasses a 100% test score. Big, square frames are the “it” sunglasses for winter fashion this year. And any year. Did you see Atomic Blonde yet? Holy cow, that movie is fashion in motion. Props to costume designer Cindy Evans. Don’t even get us started about the soundtrack and bomb ass fight scenes. Anyhoo..

Pardon Our French

Got something to say? The last trend for winter fashion is in the lettering category. Did you catch our article on lettering in October? Catchy phrases and Rage-Against-the-Machine-esque statements are au current. Fabric patches and stencil fonts are super punk rock and apropos for the street. (Remember, the title of this article was not, “Classy Holiday Wear for a Bourgeois Lady”.)
