Make Winter Dressing FUN!

Don't let the winter blues get your style down! Add WOW to your  wardrobe with this stylish plan that will help you transform your look.

Inspired by Lana del Rey: Citizens of Humanity "Mandy" high waist floral jean, Burberry double breasted trench coat, Lillybee ballet flats, Big Buddha Braxton hobo bag, Irma Guzman Marbella earrings orange.

1. Printed Jeans: Choose from abstracts, florals, polka dots, tapestry motifs and geometrics. Add a solid top, a denim jacket, and flats for a laid-down look. Want more polish? Pair with a blazer, a fitted sweater and booties.

From left to right: Moto Baroque skinny jeans, Dolce & Gabbana, Jones New York The Straight Leg (petite), and Citizens of Humanity.

2. Colored Coats: "Outerwear is a focal point when it's chilly" says stylist Emily Current. So put on an eye-catching coat. J. Crew's coats come in a range of pretty colors from violet to coral.

3. Summery Necklaces: Yellow, orange or fuschia will lift your mood on gray days. Choose a head-turning necklace you'd normally wear in summer. Pair these Cartagena necklaces with quieter outfits like a navy blue or brown turtleneck and indigo skinnies.

4. Graphic Shoes: Combine printed pumps or booties with colorblocked clothing that picks up the hues.

From left to right: Aldo Water, Dollhouse Meow Pump, Emma Cook Orange Patchwork, and Diba Lake ankle bootie.

5. Color block clutch: A fun addition to a simple outfit.

Clutches: Audrey Brooke, Dello, Nila Anthony, and Marc Jacobs.
