I passed on the traditional plaid and chunky boot look and went for an outfit that is NYC meets Aspen. I choose the AG legging ankle in black, cozy cashmere crew neck and chunky beanie for this Aspen day on the town. I love how this outfit is warm but 'unexpected aspen.’”

“Better to stand out in awesome [and colorful] accessories. A great hat, reflective sunglasses, and a killer scarf.”

“There are a couple different ways to help make your chunky turtleneck dress feel more streamlined. Many can be belted- which is an easy way to help define your waistline and depending on the belt add a touch of color or glitter! If you choose not to belt your sweater dress then I would stick to really slimming footwear. This would be a flattering over the knee boot or dark tights with stiletto, pointy pumps!”

I try to create outfits that in which I can shed a layer or two and still like my look if temps are warmer than expected. I typically pack warming accessories, such as a great beanie, chic earmuffs, and blanket scarves.”
