"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.

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

Friday //

Courtney Simpson/xoNecole

"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.
