This Wife Wouldn’t Be Caught Dead Wearing Mom Jeans: The Winter Essentials

It is FREEZING in New York City. And while some women might relish this opportunity to layer up in these frigid temps, if you are petite like me the last thing you want to do is pile on  five layers of clothing- which will  makes you look amorphous and disguise your body shape. While I love comfy sweaters they must always be paired with skinny jeans so that they don’t leave leave you looking like a potato sack.

So what’s a petite girl to do during the winter when she wants to stay WARM, but still fashion forward, fabulous and sleek looking with clothing that will SHOW off her shape and not mask it under bulky layers of clothing? Find winter pieces that will accentuate and not eliminate!

#1 Pair a sweater with SKINNY jeans.
