Despite the fact much of the country is in the mist of a polar vortex, California’s central coast is currently in the mid-70s. While a vast majority of the United States population is bundled up in snow parkas, shearling-lined boots and wool gloves, us Californians are wearing outfits arguably more fit for the summer season. However, we do throw on a thin sweater or light jacket as a layering piece for chilly nights and cooler mornings.
This week’s Fashionisto shows how to dress appropriately for warmer winter days. He pairs a blue V-neck T-shirt with slim-fit faded black jeans and a sleek windbreaker. Each one of these casual pieces reads as stylish yet laid back. Therefore, this Fashionisto’s outfit is the epitome of California cool. Additionally, this ensemble is wonderful for college students who want to be fashionable without looking like they are trying too hard.
Furthermore, our Fashionisto’s windbreaker is ideal for a Californian winter, as while it provides some warmth for the early mornings and late nights’ relatively colder temperatures, the jacket’s material is lightweight enough to be easily placed in one’s backpack when it becomes too hot to wear.
By finishing off his outfit with vintage-inspired glasses, along with gray and brown leather oxford shoes and a stainless steel watch, this Fashionisto’s outfit transcends into the realm of classic sophistication.
Hint: Layering is key when putting together outfits for warmer winters. Investing in a lightweight jacket is crucial for Californian winters as it is the perfect outerwear for sunny, yet slightly cooler days. Additionally, wearing vintage inspired accessories paired with contemporary pieces is an easy way to make an outfit look both unique and put together.
