Go-To Outfits: Winter Edition

Monday, February 22, 2016
I think most people can agree that although you may have a variety of choices in your closet, you end up choosing the same things over and over again. Especially when you're attending school, the struggle to prepare a great outfit is hard. I was lucky (in a way) to attend a high school that had uniforms so I never had to deal with that issue as much as I do now. Now that I'm in university, what is my favourite is that I can wear the same outfit the next week but on another day where I don't see the same people in my classes haha. I've had this idea of "go-to outfits" for a while but I thought posting a winter edition would be the most beneficial because now that it is finally feeling like winter, you tend to wear your warmest items. I know when I look at the weather, once I see -10 degrees Celsius or something like that, I grab one of the outfits below without even caring if I've worn it before. This year's winter in Toronto has been completely random. It was quite nice for most of it and in January it got cold, then warm again and now it's -20 to -30 weather. Anyways, here are my top 3 go-to outfits I've been wearing this season!

Outfit 1

  • Capes have been a favourite of mine for over a year already and this one from Express is without a doubt my favourite one. I love the colour combinations and how it kind of has that Burberry vibe to it. Along with the photos I took specifically for this post, I also wanted to show that I wore it to meet Fashion Santa. It was a priority to my holiday festivities that I had to show it!

  • Cashmere Sweater - Lord and Taylor (via Hudson's Bay)
  • Jeans - American Eagle
  • Cape - Express
  • Shoes - Timberland (similar)
  • Outfit 2

  • I've been searching for a fur vest for over a year but finding a faux fur vest that didn't feel so fake was difficult. It was really important for me to find one that felt and looked soft. I fortunately won a $50 gift card to M for Mendocino and found this one (that's also available at ASOS), I knew I had to get it. I've waited so long and there was only one left in my size. I've worn this outfit quite a few times over the past 2 months and what I love most about it is that it's incredibly warm but stylish at the same time. Although, this outfit can be TOO warm. I recently wore it at school and felt dehydrated because I was sweating for most of the day.

  • Sweater - H&M (similar)
  • Faux Fur Vest - Vero Moda (available at ASOS and M for Mendocino) (similar)
  • Denim X Jeans - American Eagle (similar)
  • Shoes - Timberland (similar)
  • Outfit 3

  • For this outfit, I love how easily a statement necklace can glam up an outfit. I've worn this outfit with the necklace and definitely didn't feel as stylish as I do with it. There's actually a bunch of layers underneath the sweater but I made sure everything was tucked in so it went unnoticed. I usually wear a camisole and long sleeve t-shirt underneath everything so in total I have 4 layers for the top.

  • Sweater - New Look
  • Shirt - Gap
  • Jeans - Bluenotes
  • Necklace - Bauble Bar
