For this Maryland girl, cold weather style is all about staying warm and layering! I am about 5’3 and sometimes the combination of puffy coats, thick scarves and chunky knit sweaters can make me look like an unattractive marshmallow gal. Since I know the struggle of finding flattering, cozy clothes, I wanted to share with you some of my recent favorite pieces that have been on repeat all Winter! Many of these items look cute paired together, or worn separately; just depending on the occasion! I purchase a lot of my clothes from Nordstrom because they have an awesome points program, as well as top notch customer service in case you may have to return or exchange an item. I think you can definitely find similar styles from other stores though!
Elodie “Decon Longline Denim Jacket”
I didn’t realize how much I would wear an oversized, distressed denim jacket, until I purchased an oversized distressed denim jacket. You guys, I am SHOCKED at how many different ways I can wear this piece. I have layered a thick knit turtleneck, a hoodie, a big scarf; literally ANYTHING! I love the medium wash of this jacket because I can pair it with dark denim and I don’t look like a Mom from the 90’s in an all-jean outfit! The distressed look gives a super casual vibe, but you can dress it up with leather leggings and over-the-knee boots! I am just super happy I bought this and I think I’m going to find so many ways to easily transition this jacket into the Spring months!
adidas “Originals Trefoil Crewneck Sweatshirt”
I love this Adidas “Originals” crewneck because it’s super comfortable and oversized (with pockets, people) but it helps give any outfit a trendy vibe, without being over-the-top! I am 25 and although I feel young enough to wear certain trends, I also don’t want to have an identical outfit to someone that is 10 years younger. This simple black and white top can be paired with denim or leggings! I think this looks adorable when worn underneath the denim jacket, but I love wearing it with a black bomber jacket for a casual, sporty look.
SPANX “Faux Leather Leggings”
The BEST leather leggings that I have ever tried! They are the perfect combination of being stretchy and comfortable, while also holding their shape and flattering your curves! I am a size 4 and sized up to a Medium in these! I bought these on sale from Anthropologie, but I would also pay the full-price amount because I wear these constantly. I love the look of an oversized top with something more fitted on the bottom. You can dress these up or down and I know you will find a million different ways to style these edgy leggings.
Joe’s Jeans “Unpicked Hem Denim”
Joe’s Jeans are my absolute favorite fitting denim! They don’t stretch out in the waist, but still manage to miraculously fit my curvy lower half! I find it so hard to find jeans that just fit everywhere and these definitely work so well for me! The ankle cut actually fits me perfectly too, so I don’t have to worry about finding “Petite” or “Short” length in this brand. I love this pair in particular because they have the unpicked hem, which looks so cute against my Vans or booties! The distressed medium wash goes so well with darker tops! This is definitely another piece that I will be able to style in the Spring and Summer too!
adidas “Swift Run Sneaker” in the option “Clear Brown and White”
These shoes are so comfortable and I love the neutral color. I have been wearing these non-stop! They pair so well with all of my “athleisure” outfits, but I would also feel comfortable working out in these as well! I loved how affordable these were too!
J.Crew Factory “Cozy Marled Pom Pom Hat”
I have seen so many fashion bloggers wearing these pom pom hats and I am so proud to jump on the bandwagon! These will make an ordinary outfit super cozy and cute. I love this color combination because I wear a lot of black, gray, navy, and white! This one is super warm and I get a ton of compliments when I wear it out!
