Covetable Cold Weather Street Style

Jennifer Yee Fur Leather Cold Weather Street Style

I heard some outrageous statistic that the average temperature in the entire United States is projected to be 16 degrees today.  That’s crazy cold.  Brutal cold.  Unheard of cold.  In fact, it’s probably a record.  While I can’t complain just yet (it’s 60 degrees now), the mercury is expected to drop rapidly throughout the day to a low of 18 degrees by tomorrow morning–rarely seen lows and definitely a record in Charleston.  That said, cold weather dressing is certainly in order (for everyone)!

Fashion Week(s) Fall 2013: Street Style Roundup

imageStarting off with New York and Hanneli. Blues of all shades and finely pleated or knife pleat skirts (Miroslava Duma in winter white below) were a recurring theme.


Looking even remotely cute in a massive NYC blizzard, or just down right freezing temps, is no easy feat. These gals get props for layering–a great topper doesn’t hurt either.


This Commes des Garçons number is AMAZING.

Talk about a find–the yellow jacket on Nasiba Adilova above is vintage Christian Lacroix!  Now on to London…where the weather was perhaps a tad less burdensome. image

More coats…


And a little peplum action–glad to see it’s still alive and well.  Looking good Freida, love the peep toe pumps.

Next up is Paris–now this is really starting to morph into more of a coat roundup but these next few are seriously cool…

image image image image

Last but not least….Milan (more coats and some gnarly weather).

One thing’s for sure, whether slung over the shoulders in editorial fashion or worn traditionally, statement outerwear is the fashion set’s bible when it comes to inclement weather!

Look of the Day: Sweater Dressing

There’s nothing better than a cozy sweater dress on a crisp fall day.  In line with some of last week’s insightful comments about the current state of “street” style (check out this post on Man Repeller),  this look from Milan Fashion Week is slightly more pedestrian and simple — definitely wearable.  For a similar look, pair Asos’s collar necklace with this red Shoshanna dress or this cobalt blue number by Milly.   As for footwear, you could spice it up with Isabel Marant ankle boots.   Belgian loafers or almond toe skimmers are also an obvious choice for day.
