LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: The Layers Of Winter

Let's Hear it for the Boys

It’s time to bundle up! The most fashionable way to stay warm is layering. Layers are a must this winter season! Don’t stick to the typical layered style of a collared shirt and long sleeve shirt. Instead choose to layers different textures, colors and lengths. The great part about layering is that you always can cool off, but remove some layers and you have plenty of options if a shirt gets a little eggnog spilled on it. This Fashionisto paired a fitted jacket with a thick cable knit sweater and long sleeve white cotton shirt. An important factor to wearing layers is lining up the sleeves and collars. The sweater cannot be too large because otherwise the jacket with not fit well.

When choosing a jacket, opt for one like the bomber jacket worn by this Fashionisto. A bomber jacket is a great winter staple. It is stylish, sleek and conventional. It can easily be layered. This Fashionisto paired his jacket with dark green corduroys. Corduroys are great for adding texture and detail to any outfit. These pants are great to offset the neutral shoes and black jacket. Corduroys are a great winter pants because the material is thicker. The colors of these corduroys are also a great choosing. Instead of always buying the plain black or navy pants, opt for darker colors like a deep green or purple.

This Fashionisto topped off his look by his mustard canvas shoes. The shoes are great for this outfit because they add some brightness to this relatively dark look. It is key to keep these shoes clean! Once canvas shoes begin to get dirty and look scuffed up, they do not look good.

Hint: Chose a jacket that has a form fitting shape so that you do not look bulky if you add multiple layers. Also, there is not a need for a very thick jacket if you are wearing a thick sweater underneath.
