Let’s face it, the rainy weather can dampen the mood a little, especially when you’ve woken up late and are in a rush to figure out what you feel like wearing for the day.
This stylish second year student seems to have it down in check though! Rocking a peppered navy-grey knit sweater, caramel coloured chinos and casual canvas sneakers, his ensemble is definitely one to take note of. An avid fan of H&M, his affordable taste looks expensive but with a personal touch of style. His advice is to think of in terms of ensembles. Try not to buy just any shirt, but think about what you could wear with that shirt.
During the cooler months, these shawl collar knit sweaters are popular amongst men and women alike. They are cozy, warm, come in a variety of colours and prove to be an instant upgrade to your usual crew neck sweater. The buttons are the perfect addition, but if you’re a more easygoing type of guy, look for knits with graphics such as this one from Ralph Lauren. If a pullover is too restricting, there are styles that come in cardigan form and with a variety of buttons, such as this one.
To make your look a little more unique, add layers of shirts underneath or even accessorize! It is a common misconception that accessorizing can make a look more feminine, but it can really change your look from one season to the next.
Hint: Men, to add some interest, wear a slouchy beanie with your knit sweater or opt for a messenger bag, as opposed to your usual school backpack. Switch your canvas shoes with leather combat boots and voila! You have now successfully transitioned from fall to winter without even changing your outfit.
