Style Advice of the Week

Finally after hardworking weeks of doing essays and studying for the last term of exams, a purely deserved break is here! As Thanksgiving being a few days ahead of us, the season transition is starting to feel again outside. What does this mean? Hello winter! Luckily we don’t have to change our outfits from head to toe to be adapted for the changes of the next following season, layering up has become a pretty good solution when it comes to cover you up from the cold morning breezes. And yet there’s one particular trend that everyone sees to agree with when covering up: beanies.

The  adding of symmetry when topping off a look with a knitwear piece like the beanie, has become the new ’90s-meet-grunge-trend today. Even on the runway, we’ve seen how some of the best designers like BCBGMAXAZRIA have include this particularly statement piece on their fall/winter collections for 2013. This week’s Fashionista show us how the beanie can work with basic fall and winter essentials, without needing to try so hard on copying the looks from the catwalks.

Today’s Fashionista shows us how to bring up the beanie trend to  campus and into personal style. Her look combination for school class is simple, but I find it really practical and neat for the morning rush when getting ready for school.

Taken from today’s Fashionista, notice how the clean combination between pale color palettes still makes a color popping in her look. This Fashionista has demonstrated there’s not really a need for a vibrant color to make a statement. She went for a little bit more distinctive color combination by matching different nude tones with same knitwear texture pieces. What caught my eye the most is how she decided to use a darker nude tone for the beanie than the sweater, this is how this statement piece takes the spot-on in the look.

For this fall and winter transition a knitwear combination will know how to make you feel warm, comfortable and also stylish enough for the trend. Those chiffon tops can wait a little bit inside of our closets, the time of wearing our oversized sweaters and knitted beanies has come to stay for the following chilly temperatures. I’ve found these two must-haves for the season in almost every winter collection brand. Get the same color palette pieces from today’s look with this NASTY GAL drifter beanie to cover your ears from those low temperatures. Also, this ribbed sweater from Zara’s winter collection will  help you to keep on the side of the nude tones with a classic elegant look.

One last thing I have to mention is how the red lipstick she is wearing gives shape to every pale color piece, a good red lipstick can make your whole outfit and also your whole make up to be done even if you are not wearing that enough.

Enjoy these next week of relaxation before finals begin by finding your favorite knitted pieces for this next season transition. Don’t forget to try on the new beanie trend that everyone is talking about, as I always say break out your comfort zone and be creative and original enough to use your favorite designs.
