Hope all of you CollegeFashionistos enjoyed your winter break! It looks like Earth finally caught on that it is in fact winter and decided to turn down the thermostat a little bit — don't sweat it.
The best way to keep warm is to pile on accessories which, I know, is not every guy’s first instinct. Gentlemen, it is time to get over your fear of scarves and hats — they are certainly not just for ladies. There are plenty of macho options out there to get on board with.
This Fashionisto pulls off a gray and black striped beanie from Banana Republic and a cozy black scarf. His edgy, gray bomber jacket by Guess and sneakers with crazy duo laces from Aldo add a cool, stylish finish to his crisp Buffalo jeans and white Urban Outfitters BDG V-neck. He topped off his Top Gun look with classic Ray Ban aviators.
Anyone can update a basic jeans and tee ensemble with these little touches. Snag his style with this Washed Faux Leather jacket by Guess, Six Stonewash Buffalo Jeans in dust, a Banana Republic Microstripe beanie and these Launce sneakers at Aldo.
Hint: To avoid creating a look that is too effeminate, keep the patterns in your accessories subtle or solid with muted colors like gray, black, navy, beige and hunter green — like this soft striped scarf from the Gap. This Fashionisto's solid black scarf does the job.
