The temperature is beginning to drop in New Orleans, which means it’s time to pull out your winter wardrobe. Leave your basic coats and jackets packed at home and update your outerwear with modern styles in happy colors that will cure any winter blues. Below are some twists on the classics to keep you warm.
The Leather Jacket
A leather jacket is a wardrobe essential that is perfect for any season of the year. No one can argue against the fact that the plain black leather jacket is a cold weather staple, but owning a fun leather jacket with detailing will make you stand out. Pair this baby pink heart studded moto jacket with light denim and a sweater for a cute daytime look or black denim and booties for a chic nighttime look.
The Fur Coat
Fur coats are my go-to coats to brave the cold weather. There is no better feeling than bundling up in something that feels like your favorite fuzzy blanket. Fur outerwear is being sold everywhere this season. Throw on fur over a sweater and pair it with leggings to stay cozy and cute in class.
Trench coats have been seen all throughout the street style scene this season. These long coats are the perfect lightweight layering piece. Look extremely trendy walking down Magazine Street or a strolling through the French Quarter on a cold day by sporting this classic look.
The Puffer Jacket
Puffer jackets are the optimal jacket choice to face the coldest of days. While not previously known as fashionable, the puffy jacket has been upgraded this season with prints, designs, metallics, and pops of color. This edgy snakeskin printed puffer jacket from Zara will keep you warm without compromising style.
Keep a look out for all of these functional yet fashionable winter necessities.
