Those of you who follow me on Polyvore or Twitter may recognize this outfit (which I created last month), but I wanted to repost it because it is a great example of a January outfit. The holidays are full of sparkle and fancy dress occasions and the dreary cold of the new year can be a bit of a let down. This look combines a bit of fun and whimsy with practical warmth and comfort.
First off, the practical part of this outfit. It combines (nearly) flat ankle boots so you can maneuver through the slush, two warm layers (the leather jacket and the sweater), and denim (which is always a weekend essential).
However, this outfit is more interesting than your run-of-the-mill sweater and jeans combo. The bold graphic on the sweater works well because there are not bright colors battling for attention. This makes it feel clean and modern and lets you bring in a great hue in the jacket. The clean lines of the jacket add a dash of polish, without making you look overdressed for your weekend activities. An asymmetrical jacket works well because it gives the structure of a blazer without feeling like work clothes.
