Devastatingly Chic.  It’s my blog name but also my overall philosophy in terms of what I hope to look like once my ensemble is created daily.  In my eyes, devastatingly chic means that you exude a certain allure where you are dressed impeccably.  However, it looks so natural and organic at the same time.  It’s as though you “just threw this old thing on” and yet you’re the most stunning natural beauty on the block.  That is the true meaning of chic.

Those that tend to dress chic tend to have an outfit formula that never really fails them.  Mine changes seasonally.  In general, I have a certain combination of items in my wardrobe that never fail me.  These are the items that I can always count on to look amazing.

In Winter, this is my uniform.  The combination is simple but works in so many different ways.  I can always count on it.  It always lends itself to me looking pulled together despite the quick mornings rushing out the door.

My uniform during winter is (all in neutral colors of course!) a pair of boots, a sweater dress, and a just above the knee length coat.  I’m telling you, it’s near perfection and a confidence booster every single time.  See other examples of this outfit formula here and here.

This coat is what a Chanel lover’s dreams are made of.  It’s serious Chanel vibes are a smile inducer!  The crisp cream color keeps it fresh and easy to pair other pieces with.

A note on these boots.  I’d been HEAVILY lusting after the Stuart Weitzman ones but couldn’t bring myself to bite the bullet on them.  These are the perfect substitute.  The best part is that they stay up on my legs!  It’s so rare for me to find a boot that actually does that.  They are great quality and run fairly true to size.  I’m always an 8 and purchased these in a size 39.

What’s your Winter uniform?  Do you have an outfit pairing that never fails you?
