I’ve always been and black, white and grey kind of girl (woman?). But I have to admit that blush has slowly gotten under my skin. If I had unlimited disposable income, I would be rolling in blush clothing right now. But as it stands, I’ve allowed myself to get just a few blush pieces and not get carried away. And this blush sweater is one of my favorite pieces that I’ve added to my closet this year. It’s cashmere and so soft. And the color is divine.
Dressing for wet and cold weather has usually been a challenge for me. For one thing, I resisted getting rain boots for a very long time because I didn’t find them stylish enough. Plus, I don’t like rain jackets. So, staying dry and warm is not always easy for me.
The key to wearing black from head to toe in winter, and any other season really, is playing with texture. Done right, wearing all one color doesn’t have to be boring. Texture adds just the right amount of interest and makes the outfit cool.
I’m a firm believer in the power of layering for winter. And since I’m already starting to get bored from my winter uniform of a mama-bear down parka, I decided to winterize my faux leather leggings. Leather leggings and a moto jacket are pieces I would wear during transitional weather. So to make them winter-proof, I added lots of layers – a cashmere sweater, a cashmere scarf, and a chunky hat.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I live in neutrals. And this outfit sums up my fall neutrals – greys, military greens and black. And you probably also know that I live in my military jacket. It’s my staple for spring and for fall. And cool summer evenings. And it fits easily over sweaters, so I can wear it even on mild winter days. So you see, I try to wear my military jacket all year round.
