It’s a new year Fashionistas/os and classes are back in session! After a lackadaisical break where responsibilities included manning the couch and stuffing our faces with holiday treats, the last thing on our minds is getting cute for class. For those of us reminiscing on the vacation that was and not yet enthusiastic about sporting our newest purchases, there are ways to be effortlessly trendy until the “bye-bye holidays” blues fades away.
This Fashionisto keeps it chic and simple with a grey sweater over a dark button-up for an easy professional look. My favorite part of this outfit is the cuffed, baby blue denim. As the cold Chicago temperature relentlessly drops, the color in my wardrobe quickly clings to blacks and greys. Colored jeans are a perfect way to spice up a seemingly basic outfit and break out from the dark and drab.
The patterned socks peeking out from his crisp oxfords and tortoise readers are a quirky bonus for this trendsetter’s look. Numerous people have expressed their apprehension with readers that aren’t prescription, worrying that they will look silly rather than stylish. Doctor prescribed or not, this Fashionisto shows all the non-believers there is nothing to fear!
The outfit is tied together and ultimately given the outdoor stamp of approval with the classic peacoat. In my opinion, a good pea coat is essential to the cold weather wardrobe of any Fashionista/o. Not only does it protect from the brisk air, it instantly “glamourizes” the look. Paired with a nice scarf, this coat is a high-profile alternative to a normal puffy jacket. Even though a puffy North Face is preferable when ice seems to form all over, whenever the weather permits I don the pea coat.
One Simple Change: Swap out the light blue for dark-wash slim leg jeans for a perfect casual date night!
