Let’s face it, winter is officially here in Canada and it’s so cold out there. Just two weeks ago I could comfortably wear leggings, a sweater and a wool coat by itself. One day I was coming home from school wearing a packable puffer, leggings, hoodie, and runners. When I got off the bus, I literally ran all the way home because the 2-degree weather was biting my ass so hard. So I thought it would be a good idea to post a few looks for the winter. Just like in my title, here is my 2017 Winter Lookbook.
Let’s face it, no one likes being cold, but for me, the feeling of frigid temperatures is terribly uncomfortable for me. In this lookbook, I will be showing 4 looks each with a different style and temperature friendly.
The first outfit that I put together is for those days when you are sitting at the office and it’s just terribly cold or the control room just thought turning on the A/C full blast was a good idea. Here I am wearing a grey sweater from American Eagle, a black thermal long sleeve from Gap and my favourite blanket scarf that was gifted to me last Christmas. Sometimes if it is not too windy and brisk, I was would wear just this to get a coffee from on another building on campus. I would say this would be good when it’s between 5-6 degrees out.
The next outfit that I curated is a little bit edgier and I was inspired by the fashion scene of New York. Obviously, New York has colder winters than we do this outfit is perfect for those days when it’s not too brisk but it’s still quite chilly out there. I am wearing the same sweater and scarf from the last out and to finish off the look I added a leather jacket. A leather jacket to me is still wearable by itself just towards the end of winter, however, I believe a leather jacket could be layered underneath a parka or a wool coat for those bitter cold days around 5-6 degrees (for me). The leather jacket is from H&M and the beanie is from Urban Planet.
The third outfit was my favourite to create because it was simple and very trendy. We all love our plaid shirts, especially if they are thermal or that flannel material. Paired that with a thick fluffy puffer vest makes this outfit transitional from fall to winter. Here I am wearing a puffer vest from Old Navy and the beanie from the last outfit. Just like the leather the jacket, a puffer vest can easily be layered with a parka for those days when its -10 out there, but for this out 4-5 degrees is what I would recommend if you wore this outfit by itself.
The last outfit is featuring my wool coat that I bought last year at Joe Fresh. I have gotten a ton of compliments from a few of my colleagues and my classmates and they all have said one thing in common, how dressy and elegant it was. I fell in love with this jacket the moment I saw it on the rack and envisioned how many outfits I could create with it. I would wear this outfit when it is between 3-5 with a ton of layers underneath it. I also carried my favourite Starbucks mug when I am taking a dash out to Starbucks (obviously) to get a coffee fix.
So here you have it, 4 looks that are easily transitional from fall to winter. All of these clothes that were featured in this post are very affordable and won’t break your bank. I hope you guys are enjoying early November. Remember to leave a comment on what you guys think about winter fashion and follow my blog and social media handles.
