How to dress for cold temperatures

Women tend to have a love/hate relationship with cold weather. I can’t be the only one who loves a good chunky scarf with a snuggly sweater to stay warm when out, but who hates the high cost of shapeless, winter-proof, drab-coloured outerwear, right? Unless you consider my wind-kissed rosy nose and cheeks as a pop of colour….Yeah, I didn’t think so.

Keeping you toasty warm and looking chic with your wallet full all winter long is our mission. So when we heard about the online boutique Le Jolie, which – you won’t believe this – makes high-end labels like Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana accessible to everyone with up to 70% off retail price and ‘buy-now-and-pay-later’ interest free flexible payment plans, we just had to share.

Here are our favorite winter coats, statement pieces, and accessories to keep you fashionable and frost-free from the one and only Le Jolie.

Winter Coats

To stay warm with a twist, be sure to add to your wardrobe a fitted coat that cinches your waist to accentuate your figure like this Gucci Leather Trench Coat. The more form fitting the coat, the warmer you’ll feel as the tailored material keeps your body heat in while hugging your curves for a sexy strut in nippy weather.

Add something retro to your closet to keep your outerwear sensible and show-stopping for the cold season. This leather coat by Yves Saint Laurent does just the trick to keep you feeling toasty and still looking interesting.

But, don’t forget about color when it comes to your coats. You can still incorporate feminine colors in your outerwear without looking gaudy or feeling like the coat is wearing you instead of the other way around. Try something more demure, less obnoxious, like this Deep Plum Leather Trench Coat by Gucci.

As for the office, (don’t you hate being chilly while working?) these pieces are perfect for keeping your look professional yet comfortable. Try this Ombre Ruffle Cardigan from BCBG by Max Azaria on for size. Or how about this gorgeous Double Breasted Blazer by Yves Saint Laurent? Le sigh!

Statement Pieces

Who wouldn’t notice this Black & White Striped Woven Heel from Sergio Rossi when you walk down the street, or these Leather Tortoise Ankle Booties by Gucci? (I think my heart stopped beating when I first laid eyes on these.)

The tribal trend has been lingering since Autumn, and these Arrowhead Drop Earrings from House of Harlow by Nicole Richie will be a conversation piece, for sure.

Adding a pendant to your neutral canvas is also eye-catching, like this Gold Key Leather Necklace from One of a Kind Jewelry. And, to top it all off, “literally” – in the words of Kim K., add this Gold Honey Hexagon Hair Piece from Belle Noel by Kim Kardashian. You will turn heads.

If you’re going to show off that slim waistline or create an hour-glass figure, why not color it in with this Purple Leather Belt with Gold Buckle by Dolce & Gabbana? Switch up the matching belts that come with your jackets and instead wrap this bright color and flashy metallic centerpiece around you to add a mixing-and-matching lair.

An outfit isn’t complete without a bag. And, a copy-worthy ensemble isn’t complete without a noteworthy bag, at that. This Medium Blue Zig-Zag Satchel by Missoni does the trick if you’re looking for something more practical for your commute, for example.

But for a night out, we suggest this Bronze Block Party Clutch by Kenneth Cole Reaction.

Lastly, shades are a must for keeping the sun out of your eyes – or making sure your contacts don’t dry up from the bitter cold…or, hell, let’s be real: hiding the circles under your eyes after a late night out. Our picks for eyewear are both fun and flirty, like these Erine Sunglasses by Chloe (check out the detailed frills on the frames) and the classic, sleek Matte Black Wayfarer Originals by Ray-Ban

Just to put your mind at ease, all of Le Jolie’s products come with an authenticity guarantee. Items are inspected by three different sources to insure that all products are real and authentic. In fact, each purchase comes with a certificate that not only authenticates that the items are real, but also gives the company the permission to sell them to you online.

And, don’t get their flexible payment programme confused with layaway. Le Jolie charges no interest and no fees, shipping you the item on your first payment.

Sidenote: Le Jolie created a special discount for YCB Readers! Code: YCB will give you a 10% discount on the entire site and preciously marked down merchandise!
