what’s your winter uniform?

January 19, 2015

A girlfriend recently told me she was feeling a little bit lost clothes-wise this winter. Her daughter had left for college and usually helps her figure out what they call their winter ‘uniform.’ I found this concept strange at first.

“What do you mean, your uniform?” I asked.

“You know, that outfit you feel great in that gets you through most days, one that you can dress up or down?”

The more I think about it, the more I like the thought of one really reliable, favorite combination of clothes you reach for over and over again, as long as it is right for your personal style and is updated each season. I just don’t love the word ‘uniform.’ Maybe I could run with ‘every day signature look’ instead.

So here goes my 2015 Winter every day signature look/uniform (remembering that I work from home, so my signature look might look more like your weekend look)…

Dark wash skinny jeans and a loose 3/4 dolman sleeve tee. My current favorites are a forest green Vince one and a Rag & Bone Jeans one in black. I also have a mint colored one and a navy version. I would add an interesting statement or pendant necklace and ballet flats. I would usually pair this ensemble with a slouchy bag or tote. The accessories can be swapped out to change the look, e.g.. an infinity scarf instead of a pendant, booties instead of ballet flats, but the basic outfit stays the same.
