Colin Megaro: Winter is here and it’s time to kick your wardrobe up a notch. If you want to look instantly chic and in the moment these are the items you need to have.
First, bold basic pieces are the perfect starter. Blouses with puff sleeves, corseted waists and detailing are here. Pair the blouse with jeans, a skinny black pant or even a textured leather skirt. Add a boyfriend blazer that can be used for work and play. These outfits are sure you help you paint the town red, pink or whatever color you love.
Dresses are back and making a splash all over the runways. Wear them to the office, out on a date or simply out shopping. Remember you can never go wrong with the perfect little black dress. It’s timeless! Keep it looking fresh with knee high boots, heels or even a pair of ballet flats. Simply switch out your shoes and accessories and you are ready for anything the world can throw at you.
Finally, as I have said many times before accessories are key. To look winter cool add an over the shoulder messenger bag with metallic details to your must have list. Not only are they functional they are hot, hot, hot. Your next accessory must have is chain link jewelry. Earrings, bracelets and even necklaces in this mesh substance are going to give you a rocker chic appeal without needing to carry around a guitar. Last but not least are your shoes. Stilettos are always the ultimate outfit addition. They slim legs, make you look taller and are just plain sexy. Right now go for anything that is patten leather, high gloss or even a bit rocker. Keep these shoes for the upcoming seasons as this look is going to last a while. --Colin Megaro, Stylist (Planet Style Concierge)
