Style Spotting: Fundamentals of Winter Layering 101


Name: Samantha
Age: 20
Occupation: Student
Favourite places to shop at St. Vital Centre: Hudson’s Bay, Dynamite, Sport Chek
Style philosophy: Avoid looking like you just rolled out of bed!

As a full-time student (she’s studying child development at the U of M), Samantha’s days are spent hitting the books, roaming the stacks, and attending classes. She caught our eye one day in the Centre with her perfect winter layers (her thick, lush mane of long black waves didn’t hurt either!). Somehow, Samantha had pulled off warm AND chic. So what’s the key to mastering relaxed and cozy, without looking frumpy? Pair deliberately oversized pieces on top, while keeping it sleek and fitted on the bottom. Samantha’s plaid tunic and thick knit waterfall cardigan are roomy enough to survive hours in the library, while sleek black leggings and tall flat boots were made for running around campus with ease. Her little extras are fun and functional – sporty wool knee socks, a cute crossbody bag (hanging at just the right length), and a poufy pom-pom toque add a touch of whimsy and a glimpse of Samantha’s personality. Where else can you rock a super warm winter hat as part of your outfit? We are in Winnipeg after all! Stay warm and stay stylish everyone.
