A few weeks ago I shot some looks with the intention of having them up right after, little did I know re-doing a website takes a lot longer than expected, similarly if you were to be building your own house, but on like a micro level. Who knew how much goes into it and how many little things become big things when you get down to it. After pushing it back many weeks however, I was afraid that my winter street style outfits would no longer be relevant…I guess I underestimated Seattle’s bipolar weather since I woke up to snow this morning.
If you ask me, winter street style can become pretty monotonous. Big coat, long pants, and the lovely accessory of goose bumps covering your skin. It can be hard to create a look that stands out, is functional, and actually keeps you from dying of hypothermia, a problem I tell myself I have every time I step outside and it’s below 60 degrees. If we are to do the math, we would conclude that Morgan believes to be dying of hypothermia from mid September to about mid May. Mix that with my desire to stand apart from the crowd, and we get a winter street style look that is cool girl approved yet also Morgan temperture certified.
I believe there are 2 crucial elements for creating a winter street style look that meets both requirements.
1. Statement Coat-faux fur is my go-to because A)Way cool B)Actually keeps you warm
2. A unique touch that keeps you from being like everyone else-try a graphic tee, funky printed bag, or even throwing some color on…or do like me and go really overboard and incorporate it all!
Honestly, this was one of those outfits that I threw together on a whim, not knowing how it would turn out, but somehow it works. I am attempting to push myself out of my comfort zone, try things that might clash, and make it work.
Like I always remind myself, it’s not about what you are wearing, it’s about the confidence you have when wearing it.
