This year will be my first winter in SoCal and I must say I’m looking forward to more brisk mornings and warm sunny afternoons. Being from the Midwest, I’d normally be bundled up this time of the year—all function over fashion! To take advantage of the best of both worlds, I’m styling two fashionable yet completely functional looks for winter.
I had the honor of styling the very talented artist Emmitt James for a photo shoot accompanying his new project The Feel Good Tape. Using clothing items purchased from Crossroads, both looks were put together for less than $60.
Distressed denim became the trendy must-have item for your closet this year. If you live in a warm state, don’t put them away just yet! Easily paired with a simple shirt and sneakers for a classic look, all I needed to add was a statement piece to get that winter street style feel.
Jump into winter with statement items that stand strong on their own and that can be paired with almost any item in your wardrobe. This Zara tweed jacket will keep you warm and turn heads. It’s light enough for a nice evening out and big enough to fit a sweater underneath for an added layer.
People underestimate how cold it gets during California nights, especially when it’s not summer! This next look is cozy yet stylish and perfect for nice evening out on the town.
Mixing patterns can be daunting, but it just takes a little bit of balance. These bold prints were paired with a simple white blazer and white Florsheim dress shoes, all found at Crossroads!
