CFDA/Vogue Fashion Awards: Top Looks

It was a big night for fashion yesterday as Joseph Altuzarra was annouced as the winner of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, after being a nominee last year as well. His brand, Altuzarra deserved this esteemed award for its punchy prints and chic minimalism that few designers can master at once. The runner-ups were Creatures of the Wind and jewelry designer, Pamela Love. Below are the best looks from the red-carpet!

The Wintery Mix: Best Cold Weather Wear

About the only thing about bitter winter weather that I like is that I get to wear lots of cute layers! It's the perfect time to pile on your comfy sweaters, thick scarves, and tall boots. You know you're going to be miserable once you step outside anyway, (especially if you're from DE like me!), so you might as well look stylish. Above are my absolute favorite cold weather items- things that I look forward to taking out of the back of my closet every fall. I also threw in a few other items as well :)

Dark Printed Skirt: Take spring florals down a notch with moodier hues

Knit Headband: Cover your ears with a standout topper

Tweed Chain Bag: So regal and dainty, it will perfectly off set your winter look

Long Coat: Chic and trendy, a below the knee coat keeps your dress/skirt at bay in the wind

Leopard Booties: Boots, check. Lace-up, check. Snow proof, check. Sexy print, super check

Mixed Material Vest: Fur for warmth and leather for flare = a great 2 in 1 deal

Glitter Loafers: Shine like snow in made-for-girls loafers. You'll wear them again and again, I promise

Navajo Top: Be down to earth in a fun and surprisingly neutral print

Brown Leather Pants: You can still rock out in these pants without looking like a poser

Infinity Scarf: Easy to wear (no instructions needed!), and provides optimal warmth. Winning

Suede Gloves: Keep your digits toasty in trendy suede- others will be jealous, guaranteed

Cozy Knit Cardigan: Wrap yourself up in this classic winter staple. LOVE

Teal Earrings: The perfect color that goes with literally everything your wear. So pretty!
