"For snow-filled days, the assignment is easy: Stay warm. So when I did venture outside, I reached for this baby blue puffer without hesitation. It’s pretty lightweight so I wore a thicker long-sleeve bodysuit underneath, paired it with faux leather leggings, and topped it off with the pièce de résistance: Oversized white combat boots."

Where to Shop: Express Faux Leather Leggings, Black bodysuit, Steve Madden Boots, Telfar Mini Cream (Black-owned).

"Causal vibes for humpday, especially when it’s below freezing outside. Since I opted for my satin blue joggers to elevate the look, I dressed it down with a white sweater and camel teddy coat. To keep an element of style to the look, I added my retro 1’s and Pillow Tabby Coach bag."

Where to Shop: TIER satin blue joggers (black-owned), H&M white sweater, Jordan 1’s, Zara Teddy Coat.

"If I had a ‘winter uniform,’ this would be it. There’s something so simple and marvelous about a perfect pair of denim and a structured blazer. I opted for a cutout high-neck top and Doc Martin-style boots to add a bit of cool."

Where to Shop: American Eagle loose denim, Zara white blazer, All Saints Boots, Urban Outfitters top.

"Date night is here and sis is ready! I love to play with ‘less is more' during the winter, especially on date nights. I adore this peephole turtleneck for that exact reason. When paired with this midi-length faux leather skirt, the silhouette can’t be beaten. I added the leopard platform shoes for a bit of sass, and my Telfar mini to keep it all the way cute."

Where to Shop: Undra Celeste turtleneck (black-owned), SHEIN leather skirt, Jessica Simpson leopard platforms, Telfar Cream mini.

Tamara Taylor was faced with that decision in 2013 after she was let go from her sales profit and operations coach job in the restaurant industry and met a then-up-and-coming stylist, Law Roach, on a flight to L.A. She and Roach struck up a conversation, and he shared how he was looking for someone to run his business and was impressed by her skills. While she took his business card, she was unsure if it would lead to anything. But, boy, was she wrong.
