Brooklyn Sweater

Can you guys believe it’s taken me this long to get a Brooklyn sweater?! I’ve lived in Brooklyn for a year and a half now and can’t imagine ever moving back to the city. So that’s why I was so happy to get my hands on this Love Brooklyn sweater from 525 America.

How to wear shorts in Winter

I paired the sweater with denim shorts, because who says you can’t wear shorts in the Winter? The key to learning how to wear shorts in the Winter is to pair them with the right tights. For this outfit, I chose red knit tights to pick up on the red heart in the sweater. This makes the outfit look put together and helps transition the denim shorts seamlessly into Winter.

Choose a Long Coat

Another trick when it comes to how to style shorts for Winter is to choose a long coat – this balances out the proportions of the outfit. For a Wintery vibe, I chose a pink teddy coat from Missguided.

This coat is surprisingly warm as it’s lined on the inside and also comes with a hood. Of course I’m also a fan of the blush pink color.

A Small Pop of this Trending Print

For my accessories, I decided to have a bit of fun and chose a leopard print cap and silver booties. I’m not a huge fan of leopard print, but since it’s all the rage this season, a hat is a good way to incorporate a small pop of this trending print. I am obsessed with these silver booties from Dolce Vita that are so perfect for the holiday season. They instantly dress up any outfit.

I completed the outfit with my Brahmin handbag and evil eye rings.
