Looking for how to pair classically feminine and menswear-inspired pieces together in the midst of winter? Take inspiration from this Fashionista, who was spotted on a freezing day using lots of layers to keep her cozy after it had snowed that morning. The pink of her collared shirt and sweater and the burgundy of her knit beanie perfectly match the colors in the floral print on her Dr. Martens. Her boots are feminine and playful, yet tough, and are perfect for trooping through thin layers of snow (and puddles after the snow melts). You can buy them here at Urban Outfitters.
Layering up for icy days doesn’t have to mean just wearing a jacket and hoodie. During the next bout of cold weather, try wearing a warm knitted sweater with a peekaboo collar like this Fashionista. Collars can be a good alternative to scarves as many ride up far on the neck. While wearing a collared shirt, button it all the way up to maximize its warmth potential.
For an extra boost of warmth, add on a knit beanie as this Fashionista did. The masculinity of the beanie and the Dr. Martens paired with the pale pink, feminine collar and sweater adds an extra punch of trendiness. Buy her burgundy beanie here and reach for it for a twist of masculinity when you’re wearing an otherwise very feminine outfit.
Spotted: Collars first made a comeback on the runway in Miu Miu’s spring 2010 show but have most recently appeared in the fall 2012 collections of Phillip Lim, Nanette Lepore and Derek Lam, among others.
