The fall and winter seasons are a time of the year most of us associate with cozy knitwear and dark colors and patterns. Layering textures and prints can be a unique way to embrace trends and add to your personal style but timeless colors and pieces will never go out of style.
The classic palette of black and white defines the basic building blocks of every Fashionisto’s wardrobe. These crisp, clean colors reflect a desire to invest in timeless, key pieces. In tough economic times, being able to wear the same pieces through multiple seasons and decades is kind to our wallets and kind to the earth. Although a black and white color palette may seem dated, adding a dramatic splash of red keeps the look modern.
This Fashionisto show the bold impact of black, white and red by wearing a hockey jersey with black and red stripes. He pairs the statement shirt with basic dark wash jeans, black high-top sneakers and a black knitted beanie. Each piece is simple and something that every Fashionisto might keep in their closet, proving how important it is to invest in pieces that can be worn over and over again.
Hint: If activewear isn’t something that’s already a part of your wardrobe, try experimenting with color blocking to achieve the same effect. Try putting together an outfit using simple basics in black, white and red such as these pants by Kennedy Denim Co, this white tee and this red beanie. The large blocks of color will make a visual impact without impacting your budget.
