It goes without saying that as the cold winter months begin to wrap up, it’s hard to stay inspired to keep your style fresh and come up with new ideas every day when we just want to stay in blanket cocoons and sleep. This Fashionista did a great job of finding that middle ground of style and comfort. Combining comfortable, colour compatible layers with reliable leggings is the way to go during this weather.
Instead of wearing those fur-lined UGGs that every other campus-goer is sporting this season, follow this example and try mixing it up with lace-up booties. It’s a simple way to keep your outfit unique and show off your style. Designers all across the board are finishing their spring looks by having their models sport a long pair of socks under their boots, flats and high heels. No matter what style of footwear you choose to wear, deliberately allowing a pair of long socks to peek above your shoes is an easy and affordable edition to your outfit that keeps it interesting and in fashion.
Like this Fashionista, don’t be afraid to wear a patterned shirt under your coat to make your outfit pop. She kept all of her clothing pieces in the low-key colour family by using army green and gray, which is the key to sporting different patterns and textures while layering in these months. An easy switch to adapt this outfit to your own personality would be to switch the checkered shirt for a bright-coloured shirt without a pattern, like a high-low oxblood shirt.
Whether you find yourself in cold or warm temperatures, don’t be afraid to add some daring socks to your outfit and experiment with patterns and textures in your layers this coming season.
Spotted: Chanel used long socks all over their spring 2014 ready-to-wear show this season. Weather permitting, dare to pair your socks with a dress and dainty heels.
