Summery prints winterized. A light romantic dress can easily be adapted to colder styles with the addition of a biker jacket. We love this look because it remains feminine but has a "don't mess with me" quality that is undeniably sexy.

There is no doubt that traveling is one of the best occasions to show off your style. In an age where practicality often trumps esthetic we love how some still choose the timeless look of a hand carried bag. A trench is also an essential travel item, reminiscent of old world journeys it is also the perfect coat for any type of weather.

This winter's essentials seem to have an almost unisex quality. Suede cutoff boots and fur hoods for all, long cardigans, black skinny jeans and tortoise shell glasses as well.

Navy stripes aren't just for warmer weather. Don't believe what all of the stores tell you, we think a classic stripe top or dress paired with a navy belted blazer is an adorable winter look.

If you have great style your pets will too. This too-cute trio is sporting the seasons classics: chunky sweaters and trendy colors such as mustard yellow and red worn with daintier materials like eyelet lace and thin cotton.

Capes, capes and more capes. A darker cape such as the simple black one shown here is a great example of how classic items can be modernized and streamlined. This cape is flirty and sexy. Worn with booties and a lovely black and gold bag the ensemble is effortlessly stylish.

A burst of color in the midsts of a cold winter makes you jump out of the crowd. This eclectic, electric look is made possible by the very careful use of color: the rolled up jeans exposing sky blue socks with red stripes, the deep blue scarf with a red motif, the blue and red checked shirt all under a fiery red jacket. Red, white and blue paired to perfection.

Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don't walk behind me, I may not lead. Walk beside me and be my friend.
Dramatic collars are a great way to bring a little pizzaz to your look. Whether with a big fur one or a cute little scarf they frame your face and give a put together look to any outfit. They compliment any look from your school girl chic to your best friend's flashy skirts.

A wool trench is a modern take on an eternal classic. It allows you to take your trench into the depths of winter, remaining streamlined and tailored even in colder temperatures. Worn doctor's shaped bag, such as the classic Speedy you can stow all of your necessary items without losing your silhouette to a suitcase.

Effortless looks are sometimes the ones that charm the most. Comfy, cosy and welcoming we can not refuse the beauty of jeans, sweaters and warm scarves.

Dignity, and even holiness too, sometimes, are more questions of coat and waistcoat than some people imagine.
Dressy coats aren't just for dressy clothes. We love this long cashmere number worn with a simple v-neck and wonderful brown leather shoes. Sometimes a more elegant item is all it takes to bring your look from simple to stylish.

Lacy details are wonderful in the winter. They're rendered all the more feminine by the presence of thicker warmer materials contrasting them like this chunky cowl, this long cardigan, or the oversized camel bag.

A laid back look for a day at the CAPC. Blue on blue accented with camel brown both classic and transcending, and the true hipster accent this season are undeniably brightly colored laces.

Cutoff booties are the perfect solution to looking great without freezing your toes off. Just because it's too cold to pull out those stilettos doesn't mean your legs have to lose an inch. For an even more dramatic effect pair them with skinny cargo pants, one of our personal favorites, and a shorter jacket that hits you right at the hips to make your legs look endless and keep yourself warm.

Converging styles, from daytime chic to workday professional. The workday look is exemplary in that it takes fashion into the workplace with small details that give a tailored and stylish finish: the velour stripe on the pant, the military style buttons on the trench. The more laid back ensemble takes us from functional to fashionable with weather resistant boots, a warm fur hooded sweater and perfectly cut jeans.

One of the great perks of living in Bordeaux are the mild winters. We have the luxury of being able to comfortably stroll in down vests and canvas sneakers in December. We love how this often forgotten joy is taken full advantage here.

As the holidays officially come to an end, it's time to get back to work, school and with that our adapted wardrobes. A chunky sweater, some suede collegiate feeling heals and a cozy cowl will hopefully make the transition easier.

Nothing says old school charm like a simple black bow tie. Bordelais waiters have an uncanny elegance, a demeanor that seems uniquely trained yet natural. Every coffee, and cigarette and glass of wine is better enjoyed when served by style itself.
