Our favourite summer trend, the boyfriend jean is actually perfect for winter. Why? Because of its baggy nature, the boyfriend jean is a great layering piece. There’s nothing worse than forcing layers that were never meant to be. Thick long johns under skinny jeans won’t flatter your backside, we promise. For a festive look, we layered sparkly knit thigh high socks under loose boyfriend jeans with heeled loafers for a more polished esthetic. The last piece of the puzzle was a crisp white coat and the season’s hottest pattern, a houndstooth sweater.
Again, our trusty thermal tights make shorts a viable option for winter weather. If you, like me, bought leather shorts this summer, take them with you into the winter season. Coloured or patterned tights are always a fun way to give your outfit character. We dressed up these leather shorts by pairing them with a long sleeve paisley oxford and cowl sleeve cashmere cardigan. If you want added coverage for your gams, trade the booties in for knee-high riding boots.

Style a mini skirt the same way you would shorts. Mix textures by pairing an A-line mini skirt with micro-suede, knit or even leather tights. We topped off this winter weather outfit with a studded sweater and a winter white tweed jacket. The faux fur snood lends a great accent while keeping necks warm.
