For the Office.  I love the look of a tweed skirt during the colder months, and this navy skirt has great mix of colors and textures.  Should you need something wallet-friendly, try this super-chic NW3 skirt from ASOS or this basic tweed skirt from Ann Taylor.  Plus-size?  Try this skirt from Coldwater Creek.

To pair with the navy skirt, I selected navy tights and grey boots.  However, if you prefer pumps, try these dark grey suede pumps from Naturalizer or these navy pumps from Ivanka Trump.

I added a basic grey bag and a coordinating belt to complete the look.  In this case, I would belt over, not under, the cardigan.  Clueless about how to belt a cardigan or blazer?  Check out this YouTube video from J’s Every Day Fashion.

Lastly, I added a grey pearl ring because I love how the color of the gem coordinates with the colors in the sweater.  Can’t afford Yurman?  Try these Majorca pearl earrings or this Yurman-inspired open bracelet.

For the hair, I would wear it down and curled under at the ends or wavy.  Hot rollers should do the trick.  For the makeup, I would recommend a soft berry lip like Fresh Sugar Plum and a good coat of black eyeliner.

For the Weekend.  How fabulous is this blanket cardi from Forever 21?  And the price, unreal.  I also love this soft, open-knit cardigan from LOFT and this great black and white sweater from ASOS.  Perfect for chilly winter days.

I put up these J.Crew jeans last night, but they sold out before morning.  I suppose that happens when things are 40%-off.  Instead, check out this pair of distressed skinny jeans from LOFT, or spend a bit more on this pair from Hudson.

I originally planned to use a short boot for this outfit, but decided on the chocolate tall boots from Zara instead.  I just like riding boots better, even though my dislike for shorter boots has waned as the styles have improved.  And since I don’t like to exactly match shoes and purses (if I can help it), I chose this cognac Madewell bag.  It’s a great size for those of you looking for a bag to take on the airplane.

For the jewelry, I chose a chunky watch and a stretchy bracelet with some color that could hold its own on the same wrist as the watch.  I also picked some hoop earrings with a unique shape.  If this Kors pair is out of your price range, check out this square pair from Natasha Couture for $22.

For the hair, I would wear it up in a braided bun.  For the makeup, I would wear a red fingernail, like OPI red, and a sheer red lip, like Lola Cosmetics sheer gloss.
