I’ve said this before, and it definitely won’t be the last time you hear it in the next few months, but the challenge of looking cute in the winter is one I struggle with more than many. Left to my own devices, I’d probably wear knee-high boots and gigantic sweaters and stretch denim until May.
That’s why I’ve decided that in order to avoid a total sartorial slump, I have to set goals. Aside from looking better on the streets of New York on my walk to work, getting dressed (up) has an amazing affect on my mood and my productivity level. I feel better when I look better, plain and simple.
My 3 Winter Denim Style Goals:
1. Wear heels with my denim more. This is a big one for me, and it will definitely be the hardest for me to achieve. Heels are not in my nature, but I’ll be darned – they look amazing. The elevation of your look with the addition of a great pair of heels is more impactful than anything. To kick things off (pun intended) I want a classic pump like these from Alice and Olivia.
2. Snag the perfect denim jacket. A girlfriend of mine has been wearing her Madewell denim jacket over and under just about everything lately – and I’m so jealous. She wears it over her shirts and under a warmer jacket, creating this great layering effect. I’m so inspired I think I have to steal the idea right off her back.
3. Give my preppy looks a little more edge. As you know, my denim looks lean toward the classic and preppy (cable knits, button down shirts), but there’s always something to be said for turning that on it’s head a bit. A leather jacket with a tartan plaid scarf and leopard booties seems like a great place to start.
