Look Book: CR- Fall Into Winter

The Thanks Giving Holiday marks a lot of important annual milestones. It's the official start of the holiday season, Black Friday kicks off a shopping season that last through Christmas, and if you live here in NYC it's the unofficial start of winter. It seems that every year the weekend after thanksgiving brings extra blustery winds and a precipitous drop in temperature. Although we're still technically a month away from the official start of winter you wouldn't know it today. But that doesn't mean you have to lose your sense of style. Enter this look from Charlotte Russe that I'm calling "Fall Into Winter!"

The centerpiece of any good fall look is the coat or jacket. Layer up under this lightweight Double Breasted Wool Jacket featuring a wool twill fabric, fold over collar, double breasted buttons, two front pockets, buttoned long sleeve cuffs, and an interior lining for extra warmth. The color pictured is called Chocolate, but this jacket also comes in Ivory White and Wine Red. Sizes range from Small to Large. For some perspective on fit, note that size medium has a shoulder-to-bottom hem length of 24". Keeping with Charlotte Russe's consumer friendly pricing, this jacket sells for only $28.99 and does qualify for the Black Friday BOGO Sale.

Next you'll need something chic underneath the jacket. Adorable with skinny jeans or leggings, this Tie Knit Tunic features a cable knit fabric, hood with pom pom drawstring tie, and a waist tie. This Tunic is sleeveless so I recommend wearing a turtleneck or sweater underneath. sells this Tunic for $24.99 in sizes ranging from S to L. Size medium has a shoulder-to-bottom hem length of 33".

Leggings are all the rage right now, and I love them with this look. Layer or wear on its own, these 21" Seamless Leggings feature a stretchy knit fabric, seamless construction, and a ribbed waistband. The Inseam is 21" with a Rise of 7". They sell for $7.99 at Machine washable.

Tuck your leggings or bottoms into these Buckled Cowboy Boots featuring a distressed faux leather, buckled straps, round toe, stitching details, 2 1/2" faux wood chunky heel, and a lightly padded insole. 13" shaft height. Faux leather upper and rubber sole. offers these boots in Black and Brown for $42.99.

You can top off the look with an earmuff hat or a cabbie hat. Gloves and scarves are optional depending on the temperature. All of the items above qualify for the Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off sale currently going on at
