Black and Blue in Cozy Layers by Kathrine Eldridge, Wardrobe Stylist

The weather forecast for the rest of the month looks pretty dismal so layering is key for surviving the cold. This black and blue cozy look is just what the doctor ordered.

Layering in Black and Blue

Black and blue is a chic combo for winter. Instead of doing all black, consider this color mix. The contrast of the two makes you look twice and doesn’t have you blend in with the crowd. We want to be noticed, right?

I received this hooded cardigan from Armoire which I mentioned in last week’s post. The lines of it make the eye move down which really helps because it’s definitely a bulkier piece. I threw it over this black cashmere sweater which also came from Armoire. A black cashmere sweater is definitely a winter wardrobe staple which can be worn with almost anything. (Nothing is more classic than a cashmere sweater paired with a pair of jeans.) This is probably the warmest look I have worn all year. What’s your go-to winter outfit?

Put a Hat on It

The last detail I added to this look was this winter hat. What a difference an accessory like this makes! Every time I put a hat like this on inevitably I receive some type of compliment and inquiry on where I got it. Every woman can wear hats! Just step out of the box and get yourself one and wear it. Take a look at my favorite winter hats at the moment.

Have a wonderful week ahead! XO
