As spring slowly rolls in to most parts of the country, up in Vermont our winter is still going strong. It can be difficult during the colder months to get inspired while getting dressed. Layering is great, but some days can feel too cumbersome. Classic pieces are a great way to maintain some style when you have to brave the snow and ice.
Military inspired pieces like this Fashionisto’s coat are a great silhouette. The embellished collar and lining help to retain heat, which is essential when the temperatures drop. Military inspired garments are visually interesting as they have many little details such as buttons, zippers and pockets. Not only are these details stylish, but also they’re practical! His jacket has a very cool leather detail on the neck, which adds a little surprise without detracting from the jacket as a whole.
This Fashionisto jazzes up his ensemble by partnering this jacket with a graphic T-shirt. Graphic T-shirts are great because they offer an opportunity to express your style with a fun picture or text. This Fashionisto is wearing one that represents an activity Middlebury College, which can be a great way to advertise campus activities! With jeans and some practical work boots, this outfit is perfectly suited for the winter.
Hint: Graphic T-shirts can be a great opportunity to show your personality through your fashion. However, when choosing one make sure that it matches with the rest of your outfit and your attitude that day. Printing graphic tees can also be a great way to show club or college pride. They also add a bit of visual interest to an outfit with few words or a simple picture.
