Fashionable & Frugal for All Weather Trends
By Danielle Belisle
Seasons are changing, and as someone who lives in the Midwest, one day it can be 60 degrees and sunny, and then the next day it can be 32 degrees and snowy.
So how do you maintain your sense of fashion without breaking the bank? Los Angeles based network and celebrity stylist Jeni Elizabeth (http://jenielizabeth.com/ IG: @jenielizabeth) provides some great tips for those who cannot necessarily afford a look straight from the runway.
As a stylist who lives in L.A., Jeni admits that “every day is groundhog day out here, 80 and sunny,” though traveling so much for work, she needs to be dressed to the fashion industry standard while abiding to weather conditions of what feels like, “20 different cities.”
Jeni’s advice? Invest in “timeless traditional pieces” like a denim jacket, boyfriend jeans, cardigans and booties. “These are the pieces that I am ok with spending a bit more money on,” she says, because these pieces are appropriate for all seasons and weather conditions, and these are pieces that can last for many years.
Below are some of Jeni’s “must have” pieces for all weather trends.
