The Fashion Menu: January


We’re still incredulous that we’re halfway through the first month of 2016. Some resolutions have come and gone, but we’re hitting the ground hard invigorated for an awesome 12 months ahead.

With the New Year came a closet refresh (okay, with the help of Marie Kondo’s books) – out with the old, in with the new! We’re currently lusting over deep plaid prints and cozy shearling lining, preferably both at once. Plush and warm shearling is a welcome addition to our winter wardrobes as temperatures are quickly declining across the country.

Below find the Bitches top picks for January styling from head to toe.


Elie Tahari jacket (similar) | J. Crew turtleneck | Ann Taylor pants | BED|STU boots (c/o) | GiGi New York bag (c/o) | Forever21 brimmed hat | Kendra Scott necklace and ring (c/o)


This shearling vest from Nordstrom is an affordable, fun way to add some fluff into your winter wardrobe.  We also love this Splendid version.

HBIC Cori Sue has been coveting a Penfield puffy jacket, and this version with navy, leather, and shearling is the perfect outdoorsy yet stylish jacket.

If it’s going to be freezing, you might as well look cute.  Chicago Social Bitch Amber says ditch the boring peacoat and try this vibrant plaid pattern from J.Crew


New York editor Ally loves the unique patchwork detailing on this Vince Camuto shearling overcoat. It’s sure to make a statement and keep you toasty simultaneously – a win win!

Shearling always keeps you warm, so Chicago editor Allison is loving the leather moto jacket with a shearling collar by Topshop to keep her toasty and trendy in Chicago this winter. 

Chicago editor Alexis is staying stylishly warm with her new quilted coat with removable shearling liner from Nordstrom. The perfect comfy coat for winter will sub in for a light jacket come spring.


Cori Sue finally figured out how to style a beanie and immediately felt ten times cooler. The trick is heading to a department store and trying a bunch on. She loves the slouchy pom pom beanies from Nordstrom.

CSM also picked up these gorgeous shearling booties from Matt Berson. They’re an ideal winter chic complement to skinny denim and an oversized sweater. Throw on a beanie and your favorite coat and voila, you have the perfect January ensemble. These Revolve booties come in a close second, with a Southwest flair.

Ally is officially a backpack convert and has ditched purses, maybe for good. She loves this wintery spin on the satchel from Nasty Gal.

Rain and snow are no problem in these classic shearling-lined L.L. Bean boots. Pair them with leggings and cute wool socks peeking out. 

Amber’s slipping off her snow boots and immediately slipping on these plaid moccasins with a thick faux-shearling lining from J.Crew. She may never leave the house this month.

Two is better than one and when it comes to shawls, it’s even better! Allison is loving the David & Young’s glen plaid reversible blanket that can be used as a shawl, scarf, or anything in between!

DC Social Bitch Annie is obsessed with the infinity scarves at Urban Outfitters. They’re cute, cozy, and double as neck rolls for air travel.

With Chicago temps in the low teens, Alexis is especially loving these cashmere-lined gloves that are touch screen compatible. She can use her iPhone and not risk frostbite in the process! 

This adorable plaid winter hat makes it easy to leave the house, messy hair and all. Alexis especially loves that aside from being cute, it is also extremely functional, and gets the job done when it comes to keeping your ears and head warm this winter. 



Hot Coco anyone? We’ll cozy up to anyone wearing Chanel’s Coco Noir eau de parfum. The scent is intimate, seductive, and perfect for nights by the fire. 

Amber’s combatting dull winter skin with this Seaberry Moisturizing Oil, a blend of pure oils and seeds packed with restorative omegas. Find it at Sephora!  

Instead of letting the winter wind wreak havoc on her skin, Allison is using the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Balm, which offers intense hydration when your skin really needs it.
