Around this time of the year, a frequent question is, "How does a lady dress elegantly in this [cold] weather"? Well, let us fill you in on two staple go-to's during the colder weather season: the black turtleneck and full skirt.

Ah, the classic black turtleneck. All the timeless beauties from Marilyn Monroe to Audrey Hepburn had at least one in their closets. Fast forward to now, and this wardrobe basic is still just as relevant. Especially in black, the turtleneck is versatile with any separate and can be translated easily into any look depending on your style. It's also great for layering (another big fashion trend this season!) In this case, we decided to pair with a gorgeous full floral skirt with darker tones. If you have been in the Diwa Dollhouse closet, you know how full skirts (think Dior in full bloom!) dominate both spring/summer AND fall/winter. Just add stockings and another favorite must have staple: the black ankle boot. Again, a classic silhouette like this is perfect for mixing and matching with different outfits. We topped off the look with out favorite chunky gold necklace…What a way to make a statement! We decided to keep the jewelry a gold tone to bring out the darker, richer colored hues in the clothes.

Remember, cold weather is a fabulous excuse to mix versatile + statement pieces in your wardrobe to come up with seasonally relevant outfits! Our Diwa Dolls motto is: Buy Less, Choose Well. Buy lots of versatile basics and a few show stopping statement pieces and even the coldest weather can't stop you from looking fab!

Stay warm and continue being fabulous!

Xoxo, Diwa Dolls
