One very unavoidable restriction on most people’s personal style is temperature. This is especially true at college where the bulk of commuting to class is done on foot. To make things worse, predicting how cold or how warm a classroom will be is nearly impossible. To avoid freezing or sweating in class, look to this week’s Fashionisto for inspiration.
Every year, we read in magazines how important layering is during the fall and winter. This Fashionisto gets it right with his double sweater trick. He wears a navy crewneck underneath an earthy shawl cardigan. Shawl cardigans are great because they keep the neck cozier than a normal V-neck would. Up top, he sticks to the cooler wintery shades with a gray striped scarf. The touch of red in the scarf is perfect as a tiny pop of color, and the strip of white is brought out by the cream pants he wears for bottoms. This Fashionisto finishes his outfit with some lace-up shoes and a pair of leather gloves.
Undoubtedly, this week’s Fashionisto stays warm in his cleverly picked layers. As an added bonus, he zips around campus on his longboard, so his exposure to the outside temperature is minimal. When he gets to his class, he can adjust his outfit according to the heat settings indoors. To check out how to get this Fashionisto’s look, head over to my latest collection on eBay.
Although we get bombarded by the spiel on layers every year, the hype has truth to it. Layering is extremely useful when getting dressed during the winter. The trick makes outfits versatile while leaving room for a lot of imagination. There are so many ways to get creative with layers, but it all just depends on your personal style.
Hint: As the true winter months approach, stock up on key layering pieces. Invest in good quality cable knits, flannel shirts and cardigans to stay warm. You can even buy multiples in different colors and patterns so that you can create several combinations with your clothes.
