Sidewalk Style: Leggings and Layers
We stop a leggings-clad gal who’s breaking out of a rut.
Nicole Rowsell, 32
Senior manager, National Democratic Institute
What she’s wearing:
Ann Taylor Loft sweater, French Connection turtleneck, Victoria Secret leggings, Etienne Aigner boots, Ray Bans, and a bag purchased in Paris “ages ago.”
Favorite item in your closet:
“Right now it’s this sweater. If I could figure out how to wear it to work every day, I would.”
What do you think of Michelle Obama’s style?
“I love her. She has figured out how to do business-casual to a tee. But it’s not boring—she’s trying something new, which I admire.”
“I’m pretty classic, pretty simple. I’m trying to get out of the black rut, hence this outfit.”
What’s on your style wish list for the holidays?
“More boots, and I’d love a camel coat.”
I think Nicole can—and should—rock this cozy sweater to work. It’d look great layered over a floaty long-sleeved patterned dress or with slim pants and a top in a bright-jewel tone. And she could remove the knit belt and try some thick leather options, à la Michelle Obama.
Weigh in on Nicole’s style!
