LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: The Wicked Winter Weather

Let's Hear it for the Boys

It is often difficult to mesh style with cold but, when it comes to wondering downtown, this Fashionisto knows exactly what he’s doing. A casual pair of khakis can be the perfect item to either dress up a casual top and sneakers or dress down a fancier shirt and sport coat.  In this case, by pairing khakis with a simple small checker-print button down and a layered quarter button-up sweater, a composed casual look is achieved. Layering is always a good idea, and it is easy to achieve with a sweater or quarter zip sweatshirt paired with a classic button-down shirt.

Everyone hates ruining their favorite pair of shoes in the slush and snow that comes with the winter season. Paired with the khaki pants, is a versatile pair of sneakers. The brown leather adds a sophisticated touch, while the rubber soles and sneaker appearance of the shoe, make it completely practical for the light slush that the weather presents. A rubber sole on a shoe is perfect for the winter season. It will be able to withstand the wear and tear that the salt and slush put it through.

Adding a coat to complete the day’s ensemble is perfect for the outfit and the bitter cold winter weather.  You can never go wrong when owning a simple black coat. You can pair it with just about any outfit, night or day. Having a jacket with multiple pockets and zippers creates a complex visual appeal and is handy when you need to put your phone or gloves in a safe place.  If it is warm enough, go ahead and unzip your jacket a bit to show off and emphasize the ensemble you are wearing underneath. Just because you are sporting a jacket, does not mean that it should cover up everything you have on underneath of it.

Hint: It is not as hard as you may think to stay stylish during the winter season. Having a good pair of water repelling sneakers is perfect for those days when the sun is out but the temperatures are still bitter. Don’t forget, a simple black peacoat can add a classic vibe and warmth to any outfit that you may choose.
