This season’s cool weather calls for warmer clothes. That’s not a hard thing to do with a closet full of scarves, thick sweaters and coats, but when the temperature norm is 75, and there’s a sudden drop to 45, it can be difficult.
That’s where layering clothes comes in handy. Putting together a few pieces can turn a summer look into an appropriate and effective winter/spring look. This Fashionisto layered a gray denim jacket on top of a darker gray hoodie; keeping it stylish with complementing colors. The hood looks as if it could be attached to the denim, creating an edgy but laid back feel.
Pants in this weather is a no brainer. This Fashionisto paired contrasting chinos with his jackets. The color of the pants breaks up the look and makes it more interesting to the eye. His shoes from Zara have shoe laces that match his pants, making them a perfect finish to this look. The sneakers are casual enough for class but still stylish.
The layers don’t stop with the jackets. Adding a beanie is a great way to accessorize and keep warm. This Fashionisto adds a pop of color with the one he is wearing. Beanies like this can be found at PacSun in the mall. Staying warm can be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be.
Hint: Add a scarf and switch out the sneakers for boots for a dressier look. If it’s cold outside and the sun isn’t out, lose the sunglasses.
