Winter is all about texture and layering, which makes for an awesome opportunity to combine contrasting styles, and given that my last outfit post featured this coat as part of my Halloween costume (I promise the Sauce is back for real this time), I thought I’d share how I wear it when I’m just being Annie. I love pairing prim pieces, like this silk blouse, wool hat, and these revamped oxford-style shoes with rock n’ roll elements, like this concert tee and my beloved shag. A crisp collar with a graphic tee creates an unexpected bohemian vibe that’s neither too contrived nor too sloppy. You can take this look from lunch on Newbury Street to a show at the Sinclair or drinks at a swanky bar without having to make any day-to-night changes. Just make sure you have a bold lip color you love in your purse! Mixing prints and playing with matching-clashing colors can help brighten up your winter wardrobe, and I try to embrace the cold weather with lots of fuzz, whether it be on my coat, my purse, or both.

Easter, graduation season, and the general arrival of warm weather means everyone is breaking out their little white dresses—but they’re not limited to girly-girl styling. To embrace your LWD’s versatility/avoid looking like you’re headed to your first Communion, ditch your preppy wedges and Jack Rogers sandals, and try combat boots and other vintage-inspired accessories instead.
