Even though the weather outside is frightful, sometimes you just need to wear a dress that's soooo delightful.  Is there anything more ethereal than a well-styled maxi dress?  There is no need to wait until your next trip to Palm Springs to flaunt it.   Layer the breezy silhouette over jeans, pair it with ankle boots and top it off with a toque to give the boho vibes a Canadian makeover.

Warm Up To Sweater Weather

Don't let the words "Sweater Weather" send a chill down your spine, there are plenty of haute options to keep you warm and fashionable all winter long.  If your sweater becomes a second skin until April, try wrapping yourself in a chunky knit or sourcing eco-friendly fabric.  Heading for drinks after work?  This seasons sweaters have an extra layer of embellishments.  And of course when you just want to gift yourself something warm without the wrapping, a bow sweater is the only way to go.

Stylist Erica Wark joins Your Morning to review the powerful statements made on the Golden Globes Red Carpet.

How To Top Off Your Favourite Winter Outfit

While hats aren't reserved exclusively for colder weather, there is no better excuse to top your ensemble off with a bright beanie or slouchy beret than a lazy winter morning.  Don't be shy! Opt for a red hat if your outerwear is neutral or buy different coloured hats to switch up your outfit routine in a snap.  Best of all?  No need to wash your hair. Images from WhoWhatWear.com

End 2017 With A Fashion Statement (or 3)

We all love to make New Year's resolutions!  But that doesn't mean we should forget about the last fantastic days of December.  With all the hustle and bustle of the season it can be easy to let your fashion slide (only to make a grand reappearance on New Year's Eve).    Try wearing head-to-toe winter white, be bold in a statement coat or extra bold and wear your NYE dress during the day.

Ditch Tights For These Boots For A Happy Winter

When it comes to boots during the winter the thighs the limit (see what I did there?).  Whether they are sky high heels or a more grounded flat, thigh high boots instantly elevate any outfit.   Wear them over jeans for a more casual interpretation or let a little skin peek through a mini hem.  If you're blessed with legs for days it might be time to experiment with a bold hue.  The best part?  Nobody will notice a sneaky run in your tights.

Hats Off To This Fab Trend

Bad hair day?  Why not top off your outfit with a beret!  Not only was the trend was seen on every street style star during Paris Fashion Week but bad girl Rihanna is also a fan.  Worried a beret isn't for you? Head to Amazon where you can try out the trend starting from $9.  Whether you wear it like a classic French girl or edgy like RiRi, a beret might just be the best way to top off your favourite outfit.

The Perfect Outfit For Exploring Connecticut

I had an amazing day exploring different parts of Connecticut, and even though I've been visiting this beautiful state for Thanksgiving weekend for almost 10 years and I always find new places to explore.   With transitional weather (not quite Fall and not quite Winter) dressing for the elements is key. A versatile trench can be layered on a cashmere knit on colder days and your favourite white tee when the sun's rays are shining.

Flip Winter Off With These Cool Weather Outfits

Don't stop planning date nights and fun brunches just because it's chilly outside.  Sure, hibernating with a blanket and Netflix seems extra appealing when the mercury drops, but with a little creativity (and a lot of layers) you can keep every date on your social calendar.  Try knee-high boots with your favourite fall dress or channel the holiday spirit in head to toe velvet.
