How to Layer and Dress for The Winter

Paris fashion blog

For me, winter is always a tough month to dress for. Even though it’s cold outside you still want to look chic. Being petite it is always a balancing act of thing shirts, bulky jackets or bulky sweaters and thin jackets, but never bulky sweaters and bulky jackets (unless I’m skiing or somewhere freezing this will just make me look super bulky and I’ll drown in my clothes).

My go-to winter outfit this year has been my new suede jacket, lined with faux fur, this thin black silk blouse, burgundy pants, and high heel booties. My “Achilles heel” is shopping and discovering new brands in Paris. I learned about 1 2 3 Paris when I first saw their IG (Click Here if you want to check it out). I first stopped this LENY jacket at a store near my apartment. After lusting over it for a few weeks I decided to order it in a size 36. As for the fit, I rolled up the sleeves to expose the faux fur. The jacket fell right at my waist, and provided enough room underneath for a thin top or a light sweater.

By now you’ve noticed I tend to wear a lot of black in the winter. However, with this jacket I wanted to pair it with a nice pair of wax burgundy jeans. I ordered a size 36 as well in the OLIVER jeans. Being 4’11 the jeans were a tad big and I want to watch them in hot water and turn on the dryer to the max so they would shrink a bit! (This did the trick, make sure you add a little vinegar to persevere the color). I always roll my jeans / pants at the bottom so my legs appear longer. Under the jacket I wore a gorgeous DORIS blouse top. This top is so lightweight and can be dressed up or down. I love the detail on the front of the blouse it looks so chic.

Finally I threw on a pair of booties to complete the look. I’d love to hear what winter fashion tips or tricks you have.

  1. Such a lovely interlock dear! I am sure you will need many of these now with the cold winter and snow in Paris 🙂 Love the Burgundy jeans!

    I just bought a pair of burgundy jeans and I love them and I love seeing bloggers wear similar jeans so I can find more inspiration of how to wear them. I also bought a similar coat recently and I like seeing how it pairs with different silhouettes. This outfit is truly inspirational for me.

    When it comes to winter dressing, I’m afraid looking cute tends to not be an option for long, freezing, NY winters. I have to bundle up with bulky coats and ugly boots to protect my feet from salt and slush. My thought is in a city full of cold people just trying to get where they are going, no one really notices what I’m wearing. I get to work and take off my coat and whatever is under it can be fabulous (also change my shoes into cute booties).
