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.
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.
