First regular post of 2014! I can’t wait to share some recent trends with you all. After surviving from the extreme freezing cold, we finally got a regular winter for the new year. Fellow Fashionistos, what’s your 2014 fashion resolution? Compared to Fashionistas, it is easier for Fashionistos to stay chic. Keeping concise and classic, you will automatically stand out of crowds with a smart casual look. A hint ahead: less is more.
I spotted this Fashionisto outside the NYU bookstore. He gives us a winter staple look with a touch of urban chic. First, a duffle coat is a forever-trendy choice. If you usually prefer a jacket to a duffle, it is time to refresh your closet with a refined duffle. The slightly rough and heavy texture is right for winter. The streamline cut easily creates a minimalist chic style. For Fashionistos, one well-cut coat is better than five eye-popped accessories.
A classic look with classic garments will never fade, like the duffle coat. If you get bored with black, khaki green and blue is the perfect replacement. His green duffle has a sense of vintage. To finish the look, you can accessorize it with a cozy beanie and a pair of boots or oxfords. It adds a touch of preppy to your already sleek and classic look. A last piece of advice, you’d better keep less than four colors in your overall look.
Hint: To imitate his look, a fine and polished duffle is the essential. For accessories, a pair of classic Dr. Martens lace up oxfords is a good choice. Topped off with a classy beanie, you look finished.
