After weeks of fickle heat, the temperature has finally gone below 65 degrees and the air is much chillier in southern California. That means it's officially time to layer up with scarves, sweaters, cardigans and jackets to beat the cold while walking across campus. Some may be disappointed that it won’t be warm as often anymore, but many are excited for the change. It’s a great time to try out more options in styling and also get in the mood for the upcoming holidays.
This Fashionisto exudes straight-up cool and trendiness with his San Francisco Giants baseball hat, heather gray hoodie, leather jacket, dark jeans, Converse, utility backpack, Ray-Ban wayfarers and headphones. This ensemble is the epitome of what fall dressing is all about: weather appropriate yet fashion forward. Layers not only keep you warm, but they also add more depth and style allowing you to experiment with various items in your closet. It’s like a fun sartorial game of choosing what pieces make a fashionable and practical combination while putting your styling to the test.
Taking note from this Fashionisto, wear a sweater, hoodie or cardigan underneath outerwear such as a bomber or a peacoat. You can also go for a more polished and preppy look with a sweater layered over a collared shirt. Dark trousers are always the way to go with this season and helps define the layers. If you're tired of the usual choice of jeans, corduroy pairs are a nice alternative. Complete the look by keeping your head warm with a cap or a beanie.
Whether one is a guy or a girl, anyone can put on a jacket and jeans. With so many more options for this season, why not mix and add different items and accessories to stand out in the midst of ubiquitous winter wear.
