Guest blogger Rock Shic joins us this week to share some local LES fashion. For more street styles and other musings, visit her at http://www.rockshic.com.

Jacket: Buffalo Jeans | Boots: UGG | Bag: Marc Jacobs | Leggings: Sample Sale on Broadway and Houston | Glasses: Chanel

Happy belated MLK and Inauguration day! The weather is getting chillier…but street style in the LES is just getting warmed up. There’s no reason not to look chic simply because it’s absolutely frigid outside, just ask this self-professed “fashion guru,” who I caught up with on the corner of Bowery and Prince recently. She’s rocking the much-coveted leather-sleeve winter coat, which might as well be the jacket du jour (just ask Bill Cunningham). When I asked her where she scored this find, she gamely replied that she got it from a recent reality-TV shoot she worked on (nice!).

In fact, we could all learn a thing or two from this easy and functional outfit put together by our fashionista here. When all else fails, throw on a handsome, statement jacket, pair it with some leggings (hers garner extra kudos because it comes attached with leg-warmers! I’m obsessed), and kick in some stylish but comfy boots. Et voila! You can look très chic and stay warm – a tall order, but, as showcased here, completely doable!
