I have a constant summer wardrobe. I have a Moncler down jacket that I cinch with a belt in the winter and can be worn over short, white summer dresses and skirts with tights. In particular, I have a Hollister tiny white skirt that I like to wear like this. I remember walking through Hell's Kitchen with my boyfriend last February in this exact look - with no tights - and heels in the snow. We couldn't find a restaurant to stop in fast enough but I did feel cute.
This might come as a shock, but Hollister actually saved me last winter when I needed clothes to wear around the house. The California-inspired skirts and sweaters are incorporated into my wardrobe more than I ever would have thought. There's something endearing about shopping a store I would have otherwise avoided in my teenage years. This is me embracing retail culture and telling you that it's okay to NOT shop at thrift stores exclusively and embrace clothes that really make you feel sexy and youthful.
