Olive & Owl

Plus Size Style, Style

When winter comes around we all feel the need to bundle up with thick jackets and scarves, sometimes forgoing style for practicality. I too am guilty of this from time to time, but the beauty of layers is that, if done right, you can be stylish and warm at the same time!

With the last few weeks of winter and spring in sight, the temperatures are warming but that doesn’t mean you can’t layer. I’m one of those people who “runs warm” and so I love the cold temperatures but as it begins to warm up a bit I find that sometimes scarves and extra layers can be a bit too much for me. Taking the same formula I shared for a perfect fall outfit, I’ve built the foundation of this outfit with a pair of jeans and a simple basic shirt. To dress up the outfit I’ve added a pair of fun flats and a jacket. Lastly I added in a scarf which I tied loosely so that it wouldn’t be too warm against my neck and face. I added in a long statement necklace which ties in with the olive color found in the scarf.

This outfit is perfect for casual Fridays at the office or a day on the town with your friends. It’s the perfect mix of comfort, style, and practicality. And, if the day gets too warm you can always take the scarf off and let your stylish necklace tie the look together!
