With below zero temperatures, slick sidewalks and long walks to class, it’s hard to create a look that’s both functional and fashionable. More often than not, the easy outfits of big sweaters, jeans and snow boots become routine and overused. This Fashionisto, however, knew just how to skip the slump and pull off cool while still keeping warm with his sleek and sophisticated black ensemble.
The first thing I noticed was his leather oxfords. Even though they aren’t the perfect shoes for braving the snow and ice, they really bring a European sophistication to the look. The patent leather combined with the laces also is a unique spin on the more common and traditional oxford shoe style.
The rest of this Fashionisto’s outfit is simple, yet chic. A black peacoat is a classic winter jacket, as the wool fabric makes it warm while the tighter fit makes it fashionable. This paired with a simple pair of black skinny jeans, keeps the sleek look intact. The slight crop of the pants takes them to the next level, by bringing a more creative sense to the look and by showing off his awesome oxfords more. The final touch to his look was the gray and black Burberry scarf, with a slight red accent. The scarf serves both functionality and fashion, as this Fashionisto wears it wound loosely around his neck.
This Fashionisto really hasn’t let the arctic temperatures bring him down!
Hint: A way to change up the classic peacoat look and maybe bring a little more warmth to your wardrobe, is to find a peacoat with a hood. A hood will allow for more functionality, but won’t hinder the sophisticated look that comes with wearing a peacoat.
