Good Monday Morning Y Lifer’s!

As you prepare to set off on a deliciously splendid Holiday week full of tinsel and treats… @TheYLife thought what would be more appropriate than a little Winter Fashion update to help spice up that Holiday wardrobe for the coming festivities.

In need of that Winter Wardrobe inspiration?

Don’t fret if you can’t seem to find the perfect Christmas, Kwanza or New Years outfit, because @TheYLife’s resident Fashion Guru and runway stylist to the worlds top designers, Nicole Brown, has been jumping at the seams, pun intended, to help us get ‘Glammed’.

And… since it’s not quite time yet to start that diet resolution, buy those jeans one inch bigger and prepare yourself for some unforgettable memories and very stylish selfies, you won’t regret!

Chatting with Ms. Brown, started off with what’s looking Hot for a Cold Winter?

“Whats looking hot during this cold winter is faux leather bottoms paired with structured coats… Leather leggings, leather pants, leather skirts, leather tops are very sexy and can be paired with anything and everything. Wax coated pants are also a major trend this season. They give a leather look, but feel like regular denim jeans. 

Lets be serious, every girl feels hot in leather, and every man loves to see a girl in leather!”

 And she added a tip on one of her favorite spots to pick up some of these fantabulous looks…

“Zara is one of my “go to” stores while shopping for sexy, chic, affordable pieces that are guaranteed to make some heads turn.”

When we decided to #gettrending with Nicole, she filled us in on new trends this season?

“There are usually not many “new” trends for Winter, because Winter is mostly about staying warm and looking fashionable at the same time. Fashion geared more towards the Holidays has LACE as a huge instrument, which is not ground breaking, but we typically only see lace during Spring and Summer! We are seeing it in forms of black and winter whites and in little details of garments.”

The holidays are always exciting for fashion, being that there are a lot of winter festivities and the such… what is a MUST have accessory for every #GenY gal’s closet?

“I am a firm believer in always having a Red dress, a sequin clutch, a faux fur jacket, and an amazing pair of stiletto black booties during the holidays, are my personal Holiday winter staples!  I also think every girl should have a sequin dress (in any color ranging from black, champagne, silver, and red) hanging in her closet with a pair of sequin heels. It is ‘the most wonderful time of the year’ after all, so might as well be fabulous for holiday soirees!”

Hoping @TheYLife and Fashion Insider Nicole Brown inspire your last minute shopping today, as you pick up some glitzing and gleaming accoutrements for your Holiday wardrobe!
