FASHION FROM ABROAD: Oh The Weather Outside…

Fashion From Abroad

The typical winter outfit usually consists of a cozy, oversized sweater, leggings, and boots—either riding or combat. Yet how does one achieve the perfect winter outfit in Bloomington when the weather varies day-to-day, from 10 degrees and snowing to 50 degrees and not a cloud in the sky? Enter the layering free-for-all.

This Fashionista’s outfit works perfectly for a winter day. The layerable garments work to tackle the weather and any unexpected turn it may take. Her combat boots and leather jacket give the outfit a bit of a ‘90s edge, while the cozy long-sleeve T-shirt offers a literal warmer effect to the look. This Fashionista’s striped knit hood works to replace a raincoat in case the weather does a complete 180 and the scarf can easily be thrown into her bag in case it starts to warm up throughout the day, as it does most of the time!

To recreate this look, try pairing a knit hoodie with a colored scarf in order to achieve the cool, or warm if need be, layered, winter look. A pair of brown combat boots complete the look. Since the weather is pretty iffy itself, try and keep the tone of the outfit in a neutral color scheme: beige, army green, browns, blacks—and feel free to add in a pop of a warmer color such as burgundy, plum or burnt orange to achieve the perfect winter look!
