I found this Fashionisto in an ice storm, and I am not being dramatic. If the weather would have been only a few degrees colder it would have been a beautiful snow storm, instead the entire campus was covered in a layer of ice with sleet falling form the sky leaving my hair damp and cold. I was caught in a storm (literally) and everything from my soggy hair to my even soggier boots were proof of that.
This Fashionisto on the other hand, must not have been caught in the same storm as I because he was briskly walking across campus looking dapper as ever with his thick (not yet soaking wet) waves, knee length pea coat and perfectly wrapped scarf. I was instantly jealous as I always am when I see someone who looks more fashionable (and warmer) than I feel. In fact, many Fashionistas/os could take notes from this gent who decided to step up his fashion game even on a day when the weather can make you want to do anything but.
The best part about this look is that, other than the dark wash slim fit jeans he elegantly cuffed at the bottom, we have no idea what he is sporting under his outerwear. When the weather gets crummy we often tend to throw all our fashion sense out the window, and those of us who still attempt to put together a look are forced to hide our fabulous ensembles under all sorts of shapeless, unflattering outerwear. This Fashionisto proves that fashion doesn’t stop when you bundle up and head outside.
To get this look start with a durable wool peacoat in a neutral color. This Fashionisto chose a knee-length coat from Banana Republic with chic pocket details and a velvet lapel. While Fashionistas these days cant seem to get enough of scarfs, I have found that Fashionisto’s are often intimidated by them. This fellow on the other hand, conquered the scarf and wore it to perfection, even throwing some fingerless gloves into the mix! I must say, when it comes to cold-weather fashion, he nailed it. I mean, don’t even get me started on those awesome boots. From head to toe, this Fashionisto makes even the nastiest ice storm chic.
