It’s easy to get bogged down with projects and exams towards the end of the semester and sometimes that school stress can translate into less than inspiring outfits. When you find yourself in a rut of drab gray hoodies and black sweatpants, you know it’s time to make a change. While I am definitely a supporter of classic black and other neutral looks, adding some unexpected color can liven up your winter wardrobe in a bold and eye-catching way.
This Fashionisto’s Herschel Supply Co. backpack is a central component of his outfit and caught my attention right away. Even though it is a very bold accessory, it still has the ability to unify his entire outfit. The traditional camouflage pattern with the blue and red color-blocking on the backpack corresponds perfectly with the rest of this Fashionisto’s outfit.
His subtle army green pants play tribute to the camouflage pattern and his electric blue sweater matches the blue pocket on his backpack. The navy vest with its fur-lined collar and detailed button pockets also stands out as a prominent accessory that instantly enhances this Fashionisto’s casual winter outfit. Finally, he completes the outfit by keeping his shoes simple with these Center Hi PF Flyers in natural.
Hint: To break up the monotony of winter grays and blacks, opt for pops of vivid colors like electric blue or red to brighten up your wardrobe. Give colors like army green, navy, cream and brown a try for an alternative approach to wearing neutrals. If you like accessorizing, consider a color-blocked backpack or puffy vest to make your outfit more interesting and to beat those winter blues.
