“I figured we made a good match. I was adept at fashion; he was adept at politics. And really, what’s the difference? They’re both about recycling shop-worn ideas and making them seem fresh and inspiring.” ~Carrie Bradshaw
I watched Sex and The City (Movie #1) over the weekend. Oh, how I wish they stopped at the first film! With such classic fashion statements and epic relationship lines, it’s easy to gain life advice no matter what year you are watching. I was, however, still surprised to see some outfits that struck a chord with what I plan on donning this winter season.
Fashion Tip #1: Socks, socks, socks

Omg. I love this look for a variety of reasons. The pop of yellow color against all neutral pieces. The thigh high socks. The leather gloves!
I’ll definitely be incorporating some socks into my winter look. Those of you in more frigid conditions do not fret! Pair some thigh highs with black stockings or just turn those socks into entire leggings.

Gorgeous, and complemented by the leather Prada bag, nonetheless. This leads us to our second tip for Winter 2012/2013 Fashion… leather! Rumor has it that the latest fall fashion is not scared of a couple of flurries. For a smooth transition, I suggest picking up some leather pieces in a midnight black color.

Fashion Tip #3. Pop the Color
Carrie’s stunning blue dress that she wore during the unveiling of her renovated apartment scene is quite the statement piece. Although it’s probably not something that I will be ‘unveiling’ on myself during the snowflake season, I am inspired to incorporate color into my winter wardrobe. I tend to dress myself in head to toe black during frigid temperatures so I’m excited to incorporate some statement color pieces, like the ones below, into my otherwise dreary pigment scheme.
