As I’ve said before, my style is simple, but I like to think that that doesn’t mean it’s boring—and hopefully others agree. Yes, I love the occasional party dress, fun bag, or statement shoes, but I’ve always believed that when it comes to day-to-day style, you can achieve an impressive outfit without wearing anything out of the ordinary. That’s why my closet is mostly made of the best versions of basics with some "cooler" pieces sprinkled in here and there.
So when it comes to dressing for winter in New York City (which is especially hard for this L.A. transplant), I tend to stick to fuss-free outfits that as a package look polished, put together, and, of course, stylish. With that in mind, I scanned the world of celebrity style, street style, and Instagram style to narrow down my favorite looks to inspire me for the season ahead. What to expect? A lot of black and neutrals, basics, timeless silhouettes (and new ways to wear them), but most important, easy-to-copy combos. As for the rest? Simply continue on to see (and shop) for yourself.
As someone who's new to the trousers-tucked-into-boots thing, I'm already obsessed so I definitely plan on copying Rosie HW's all-neutral take in the coming days.
