Keep Warm, Stay Cool

Every week, Pull This Off will feature a wishlist of the drool-worthy things that everyone should be lusting after. Looking at different pieces of in-the-moment fashion, images, items, and more can help get your creative juices flowing; hopefully, that inspiration will translate into creating some amazing outfits of your own. Some things in these wishlists are reasonable and some are out-of-this-world, but a girl can dream...right? 

For the lucky few that reside in areas with a constant caliente climate, please disregard this post and get your tan ass to the beach. For the rest of us chums, you must have realized by now that it is time to store away the cutoff shorts, kimonos, and flip flops and trade them in for leather pants, shearling jackets, and heeled boots. When the snow starts whirling down, the satisfying accomplishment of sartorial perfection can be lost amongst the days spent trying to avoid catching pneumonia. Lackluster sweaters with boring old jeans, graced with a parka and -- if you're one of those people -- a pair of furry UGGs are thrown on in an effort to stay warm, not to stay chic. But alas, I challenge you to use this winter as a fresh start; you can look fashionable in layers of layers of dark colors and heavy fabrics. Yes, it's possible! Pull This Off is here to save the day with a weekly wishlist of eight inspirational images that will force you to storm into your closet and arrange an ensemble comprised of patterned and contrasting layers, chunky knits, and yes, even white. It's time to keep warm while looking cool. Don't believe it? See for yourself:
