This winter I've been hooked on black leggings (today I'm going on three days in a row). They are insanely comfortable and somewhat flattering to my apple figure.
But I have three rules of thumb:
1) My top must adequately cover my booty and hips. And typically my tops are pretty loose, which balances nicely with the leggings being form fitting. Today's top is the shortest I'll go (actually I think it's a little too short):
2) If wearing a dress it must hit "above" the knee, otherwise it chops my legs & just looks wrong.
3) Black flats are the way to go. I bought these boots a few months ago thinking I could wear them with leggings, but it looked overdone. I still love my boots, but I now wear them primarily with jeans (sometimes with black hoes & a dress).
And every winter I love a plain, long-sleeved black Tshirt. Clean, flattering, & sophisticated. I own like 5 of them:
What are your winter staples? Cause c'mon girls, we wanna know this stuff....
