A classic never goes out of Style

The one time of the year that I have little motivation to dress up is WINTER. Yes, it’s true and I know I’m not the only one! Staying stylish during the winter months is no small feat. When I’m getting dressed for the cold weather, I like to layer up and have a good coat on hand. The Camel Coat is one of those closet staples that’s a universal classic in the fashion world.

In addition to having that go to coat, I love stocking up on undergarments. Leggings and basic long sleeve tops with heat technology like the Heattech products sold at UNIQLO are essential. They are very lightweight and aren’t bulky at all. I also enjoy wearing oversized sweaters, especially on those frigid cold days when I’m just trying to be as comfy as possible.

The day I wore this look, NYC was experiencing extremely freezing temperatures. The best thing, though, was that it didn’t feel so frigid because I was fully layered up underneath my cowl neck sweater (similar here and here) with a heattech top and my jeans with heattech leggings. The camel coat (similar here and here) elevated this outfit tremendously by giving it a more streamlined look. The Camel is a timeless and versatile alternative to your typical black or gray coat. You can literally wear it with anything and to any occasion. It can be dressed up in your favorite cocktail dress for a special outing or down in some athleisure attire complete with sneakers on a more casual day. I threw on some funky socks with my platform booties to finish this look. And of course, I couldn’t forget my beanie and my gloves were within reach in my pocket.
