Is it cold in your part of the world? Here in the UK the Winter has been quite mild, although it’s quite possible that we’ll get a cold snap in the next few weeks. January and February are often colder than December. Actually, I much prefer cold, sunny days to grey skies and rain. Plus, I get to wear my cozy chic outfits, which is the theme of this month’s Stylish Monday collaboration. (I’ve adopted the U.S spelling of “cozy” for this post to match the collage).
My New Year cozy chic outfit is based around this gorgeous faux fur coat that I bought from Asos a year or so ago. With blue, black, tan and grey in the mix I had plenty of styling options, but staying true to the cozy chic theme I wore dark blue jeans and a roll neck jumper. As well as picking out the blues, I’ve also chosen a tan hat and bag. I bought the hat in the Marks & Spencer sale although I can’t find it online now. Things tend to sell out fast, but this one from George at Asda is very similar.
I love chunky roll neck sweaters during the colder months. However, when you’re wearing a big faux fur coat you need a more lightweight one. This blue sweater from Mango is very thin and great for layering. With the jeans, it provides a basic blue foundation for the statement coat and allows the tan to stand out. I’ve added my really old brown boots and gold jewellery to finish off the outfit.
