All black new outfit of the day

The first photo in the first post of 2015 features winter outerwear during snowfall. I styled the motorcycle shearling coat with a matching beret, long knit scarf, gloves, which all have some shades of the burgundy to fuchsia family. The black in the scarf ties it to the black skirt, tights, and shearling booties.

The photo below features the outfit underneath. This monochromatic outfit works because the cable-knit cashmere sweater and shearling of the booties add different structures than the smooth other parts of the look. The skirt has different shine than the booties, shearling, and sweater. The different texture and shine create interest, and keep the look from being boring. The Alaska necklace adds a minimal pop of color.

What’s next on High Latitude Style

Focus Alaska will continue in 2015. Likewise style tips for any age – and of course – with reasons why it works. Once in a while, there will be science bits that are sort of interesting to know or related to fashion like, for instance, electrostatics or why clothes release sparks. Science is not just for men, women love science too.

In 2015, I will host a link-up party every Thursday. It will start at the end of January. So watch out for the invitations on this blog, and my accounts on twitter, facebook, google+, and pinterest. What’s the name of the link-up? Wait – did I ever tell you that when someone comes the first time to Alaska, they are greeted by some Alaskans with “welcome to the top of the world?” It is the northern equivalent of “down under.” Thus, the link-up’s name will be Top of the World Style. Every one of all ages and gender is invited to link up. Yes, guys please link up too. What’s a party without you? All women like to dance!
