Drifting Into Winter


Move aside summer and fall clothing, it’s time to replace everything with fabulous winter attire! Just because we need to cover up and bring on the layers doesn’t mean we can’t look stylish at the same time! The women at Capital Area Women’s LifeStyle Magazine have teamed up with the ladies over at Kellie’s Consignments to bring you fresh ideas for your winter wardrobe!

Basic Black
If you don’t have time to shop or you need to find something basic that can be worn in many styles, try going for black pieces. Put together black pants, a black and white top, and a black jacket. Make it chic and with a patterned scarf or sassy with animal print. Dress it up however you want! Pair the outfit with flats, dark heels or boots. These basic blacks will be able to transfer with many other looks from
your wardrobe.
