Style Advice of the Week

Right when you think that the cold weather is here to stay, Texas surprises you with a heat wave. Although it may not last for a long time, I know I have a hard time deciding what to wear when this happens. You don’t want to start wearing your flimsy summer fabrics, like linen or eyelet, but you also don’t want to be sweating in your favorite chunky knit and corduroys. So what is the right combination? Well, take notes from this Fashionista’s outfit and you’ll be sure to beat the winter heat.

This Fashionista wore a printed sweater, denim cut-off shorts and black sandals. This outfit is perfect for “summertime in the winter.” The colors and fabrics are appropriate for January while maintaining a relaxed vibe that is perfect for the warmer weather. If the cold weather comes back, this Fashionista could continue wearing this sweater with some berry jeans and a scarf. Her printed sweater even has a nod to the tribal trend that has been abundant in every store for the fall season and has continued to stay relevant in the chilly weather. So when summertime hits and you still want to show the Aztecs some love, go out and snag some tribal swimwear.

Another thing worth mentioning about her sweater is the berry and mustard colors that complement each other perfectly! Fendi and Burberry have taken these two colors into their spring collections because of desirability. One way to wear these two colors together without looking like you are wearing your favorite condiments is by pairing a detailed mustard top with dark denim and Ivanka Trump platforms. You’re sure to look elegant with a colorful twist. Just keep one tip in mind: make sure the two hues are the same color intensity if worn together.

All the elements to this outfit are perfect for winter and can be easily taken into the warmer months coming ahead. And as we know for Texas, that is coming sooner than we think.
