Miss G: #OOTD Looks of the Week

Hey Afrofusioners!

So, the weather this past week has been crazy! I didn't know whether to wear a Winter jacket, a Spring jacket or any jacket at all. This shows you how much the weather has been fluctuating lately.

For my looks this week, I wore some fun winter looks that are perfect for those days when the winter weather is unexpectedly warmer than usual....

Sweater Dress: Forever 21
Who say's you can't wear a dress during the winter? Sweater dresses are very much a stylish option during the winter months and this button-up sweater dress I picked up from Forever 21 has become my favourite piece within my winter wardrobe. I was lovin' it so much that I got it in all 3 colours! In addition to this grey, it also comes in beige and black.

Belt: BCBG / Shoes: Charlotte Russe
I especially love the side slits detail in the dress which adds a nice flirty element to this look. From the front it looks like a simple sweater and then you hit 'em with the side slit like POW! lol.

For accessories, I added a thin wrap-around tasseled leather belt which added a nice dressy touch to the look. Furthermore, I opted for silver and black jewelry to keep everything neutral. Finally, I wore a pair of lace-up black booties to finish off the look. Knee-high black boots would also work as n alternative.

Necklace: Vince Camuto / Bracelet: Suzy Shier / Watch: Kenneth Cole
This is a great look for a night out on the town and can also be dressed down my adding tights and a flat heeled bootie.

Sweather: The Bay / Skirt: Forever 21
This week I also felt like rocking my fur vest I picked up from Aldo accessories a while back. Yes, Aldo sells fur vests! I was surprised to find this item in the store as well, however, I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked it.

Fur vests for me are very difficult to shop as a find that a lot of styles make me look bigger, especially since I have a larger chest. In addition, some fur vest are to puffy or the faux fur style looks bit messy. However, when I came across this particular vest, I felt I had finally found one that would work for me. Although, I feel like the fur still adds a little bit more to my size, I still think its cute an am making it work!

Fur Vest: Aldo Accessories / Boots: Forever 21
In putting this look together, I decided to maintain a dark brown/chocolate toned aesthetic. To pair with my vest, I thought wearing a leather skirt with thigh high boots would work well. Furthermore, as this is a winter look, I pulled out my trusty turtleneck sweater in dark brown to finish off this look. Again, I kept my accessories simple by adding a long gold pendant necklace. As I mentioned in my previous OOTD post that included a turtleneck sweater, they work well with all necklace lengths, therefore this time around I wanted to us a longer length to show its versatility.

How are you coping the this ever changing Winter weather in selecting your everyday style looks?

Well in any case, whatever you are doing try to stay warm y'all! :)
