LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Winter Foundations

Let's Hear it for the Boys

Despite Boston’s recent frigid temperatures, Emerson students manage to stay warm while maintaining their fashionable reputation. The utilization of layering can be seen on every corner. Hats, gloves and scarves of all shapes, sizes and colors are worn constantly. The cold can certainly be crippling, but it is interesting to see how each individual chooses to accessorize for the winter.

This Fashionisto took a minimalistic approach to winter dressing.  By layering a button-up and a crew-neck sweater under an oversized, cozy coat, he keeps things simple. What struck me about this Fashionisto’s ensemble is the way everything ties together to create a casually cohesive look. One may not typically pair work boots with a pea coat but it works seamlessly here. Also, the addition of classic frames really gives an overall polished and put-together air to the outfit.

Take inspiration from this Fashionisto and invest in a versatile coat, comfortable shoes and a sturdy pair of jeans. A look like this can be changed and styled in many different ways.  These essential pieces form a good wardrobe foundation, a basis upon which you can build different styles. From this foundation, add different accessories at your leisure. To dress up the coat and jeans, cultivate a more formal look by adding a tie and dress shirt. On the other hand, put together a casual outfit for class by layering a graphic tee and a hoodie.

Hint: These are just two suggestions for styling winter essentials. To experiment more, take a look into your closet and try pairing up pieces you might normally wear together. This will help to create a look that is uniquely your own.
