Style Briefing: Winter 2013

From fashion to makeup, Native makeup artist Tecia Jackson shares with us tips and tricks to survive this Winter season.

1. Life just got simpler. Keep your spring dresses unpacked; instead incorporate them into your winter wardrobe by layering them with a cardigan, leggings and over the knee boots. Why not toss on a scarf, too?

2. A must-have item this winter is a denim button down shirt. It can be worn alone or with a crewneck sweater over it. Wear this look with everything from slacks to skirts to leather pants. Whether you dress up or dress down, this look with a black beanie will bring a little funk to your outfit of the day.

3. Skip the classic black pea coat this winter and shoot for plaid for a change up. Make a bright statement with a pop of color.

4. Tired of wearing jeans? Slide on a fitted sweater dress, paired with tights or stockings with over-the-knee boots.

5. One can never have too many scarves. Arrange them from chunky & knitted, to sheer & heavy print. Wear with anything & everything, it’s sure to be your go-to-item.

6. Going out tonight? Turn heads with a semi-classic look: a tuxedo blazer layered over a sheer top, shorts, tights and ankle boots.

7. Whether it’s a center part or deep side part, pull your hair back into a low ponytail and wear it slicked down. This works for both a day in the office or out at the grocery store.

8. Not into the sleek look? Go for a grunge look by scrunching your hair with hair spritz or salt spray.

9. It’s time to step away from the full, heavy-fringed bangs this winter. Instead make them choppy and wispy.

10. Fresh skin is a great look this season. A neutral eye tone with soft blush is the go-to makeup look. Another pretty yet simple look is bare cheeks with bold eyeliner. Top off the look with red lips and red nails. For a not-so-sleek look, smudge your eyeliner a bit.
