Winter in Ohio can be a notoriously difficult season to dress for. Some days it’s not cold enough to dress head to toe in thick wool, but other days foregoing layers can lead to you being caught short, especially when faced with Ohio’s unpredictable climate.
I spotted this Fashionisto on his way to class. He successfully masks one of the many trends seen on the runway this season, quilting. With this, he provided us the perfect sartorial solution to face the core of winter. Quilting not only keeps you warm, but it also adds dimension to any piece. His olive green quilted jacket creates a sense of depth and is a classic must-have for every Fashionisto’s wardrobe. A simple white button-down, completed with a quilted jacket is a great way to layer lightly and still look fashionable. Forget about black and brown, this Fashionisto finished off his look with navy blue chinos, showing us that winter’s most dapper neutral is navy. Last but not least, his accessories included a watch and a needlepoint belt that fit seamlessly into his ensemble.
With these comfortable, yet sophisticated pieces this Fashionisto proves that it is possible to achieve both comfort and style with your classroom attire!
Hint: Resist temptation to hibernate in sweatpants and sweatshirts. From a practical perspective, quilting gives you additional warmth, but at the same time adds an extra dimension to any piece and adds a real sense of depth to any ensemble you choose to integrate it into.
