A Warmer Winter: Lookbook

Echoic clacking of heels dispersing flurries around the pavement, the only accompanying noise is the breeze sending hollows through drainpipes. This colder season has proven to be more inviting this time around, with rain replacing the much-debated snowfall of last winter. With the darkest day of the year behind us, we can look forward to cozy knitwear without the bulk of a puffy jacket.

Top – Risky Business Shirt

Jacket – Baxter

This first look is structured around this loose and oversized striped button up. The classic striped pattern creates a vertical uniformity which counters the casual connotations of oversized pieces. This item can be easily dressed up or down to create two entirely different looks! Here, I decided to show you how to dress it up with a structured coat and heeled boots. Outerwear in the winter is the make-it-or-break-it item which can transform your outfit between distinctive styles. Since we tend to pile up on layers, it is difficult to see what details shy beneath, but that doesn’t mean they go unnoticed!

Top – Natural 3/4 Top

Pants – Palazzo Vegas Pant

Boots – Louie

Take a styling risk and try out interesting pieces. If you’re someone who worries about looking too styled, but urges to try out the ambitious items worn by your favourite bloggers, take a swing at items that don’t stray too far from the norm. For example, this plain grey top adds some flare by incorporating peplum sleeves. This isn’t a statement detail, but adds dimension to an everyday look. If you’re really ambitious, you can pair it with a similarly bolder piece. I added some high-waisted palazzo pants which stray from the typical trouser by minor details, like the wide leg and waist tie.

Jacket – Bianca

Top – Proper Stripes Crew

For a cozier, winter-esque look, I layered up on the knits to keep the heat in during longer outings. This striped long sleeve adds a touch of Parisian chic to an otherwise functional PNW outfit. These neutral colours are perfect for any style preference, its functionality serves its purpose while still looking like you put in a little effort. If you live somewhere more generous with snow, you can layer a thicker coat to add additional warmth.

The west coast winter skews to the warmer side comparative to our interior counterparts. This leaves us with a crisp and rainy season which is easily styled if you’re willing to put in the effort!
