Brrrr, the temperatures in my neck of the woods just plummeted, and we’re scrambling to bust out all our winter gear! Just in time, indie-retro-cool site Modcloth.com issued myself and a few other bloggers a fashion challenge: Show us how YOU work LAYERS!
As a girl with curves, layers can be a particular challenge; put me in a puffy coat, and I feel like that little kid in the Christmas Story, waddling down the sidewalk until he falls over in the snow and can’t get up…
Don’t fall down… Don’t fall down…
I’ve learned the trick to layering is in understanding your body, and for me that means keeping an emphasis on my waist. I’m just so happy that the big trend in winter coats this year is BELTING them. Yessss! All of the above pieces are urban-classy, totally my style, and have a defined waistline, no matter how many layers I add. And that coat – swoon! Nothing beats the winter blues like a siren-red coat!
Stay warm out there, my friends!
