S’Winter Styles From the Ultimate Cali Girl

Winters in the west coast are very different than in the latter parts of the U.S. Yes, we do have winter in California but, think 60 degree chilly meets cloudy days. Sooner or later the sun comes out or beams in by the afternoon; and very rarely does it rain. In fact our climate is so lenient towards summer and spring, that most of us admit that 80% of our closet consists of summer clothes alone. I barely own sweaters or jackets. It never really gets cold enough to wear a trench coat or earmuffs.  Have you ever seen a girl with a jacket in the early morning and by the afternoon she is wearing a tee shirt and sunglasses? That’s our California S’Winter! Boots, cardigans, and jeans are our best accessories when it comes to winter and are also so easy to use throughout the year. Pair them with cute scarves, headbands, and jewelry to look the cutest this cool seasons. Try these fun and simple styles to embody the California vibe and style and embed it into your wardrobe! A Touch of Color : As much as I adore fall and winter colors, I’m a California native and  I love to incorporate touches of vibrant colors even in the season that upholds the most simple and chic styles. Whether it’s a red scarf, a signature bag, a pretty beanie, or metallic bracelets. One shouldn’t follow the typical Fall/Winter styles. Over the Knee High Brown Boots: “Shoes are a girl’s bestfriend,” but during the winter they are their most prized possession. As much as I love black boots, short boots,  and  knee high boots there is just some perfection in over the knee high brown boots that I cannot ever get enough of. I love the brown because it has that classy yet used feeling and I feel so much like Katniss Everdeen that they must be worn everywhere. Accessorize your boots with leg warmers to make them look extra cute and keep your feet and knees extra warm. The Perfect Cardigan: Here in Cali, we don’t do big, heavy, and uncomfy jackets (perks of living in SoCal) in fact we are always on the search for the most stylish, warmest, and yet thinnest cardigan out there. A cardigan is our ultimate survival of Winter in California, there soft, comfy, chic and come in all sorts of styles. The best places to buy cardigans are Brandy Melville, Urban Outfitters, Nordstrom Bp., PacSun, Forever 21, and H&M. *Don’t Forget Jewelry: Jewelry is always important because, it can tie your outfit together. I always say “the less the better” (Lauren Conrad’s wise words) especially in this season. Wear a cute signature necklace,  a nice watch, or simple earrings  to make your outfit complete. You can find your jewelry at Icing, There you have it the Cali girls’ survival for winter secrets are revealed! Stand out in your city and follow these S’Winter looks. xoxo, Alondra
