1. Play with textures

If you take any tip away from this post, it should be this one. Rocking various textures is an easy way to add interest to your outfit. Slip a faux fur coat over a wool dress and suede knee high boots. Velvet, jersey, lace…the sky’s the limit!
2. Try a statement shoe

5. Layer to the Limit
Along with rocking different textures, of course layer and layer for loads of warmth. Perch a coat over your shoulders, or wear a furry vest over a leather jacket.
