Style Advice of the Week

In the midst of winter woes and cold weather, I have been inspired by the season’s trends and bright colors to bring out a sense of liveliness in the dull climate. This Fashionista paired her “hot pants” with a bright, white puffer jacket that complemented the freshly fallen snow and neutral camel boots finished off her look.

Brightly colored pants are becoming an increasingly popular trend seen more and more around college campuses everywhere. It is a very easy trend to bring into your own wardrobe with varieties in denim, corduroy or even velvet for the holiday season. These pants can be found at varying price points, making them affordable for the average college student, while options similar to this Fashionista’s red pants can be found at places like dELiA*s or even Ralph Lauren.

I also love the puffer, winter jackets that are having a moment this season. This Fashionista’s fur-trimmed hood added just the right amount of glam to her otherwise laid-back ensemble. The color of her jacket added a pleasant touch of winter white, while still exuding warmth for the chilly months. Other neutral colors that would pair perfectly with the vibrant red could be black, navy or grey like this beautiful Montecore jacket.

This pairing of bright, colored pants and warm, puffer jackets is the perfect look for running errands, meeting for coffee or just being out and about. So grab your simple cross-body bag and get going in your fabulous winter jacket and hot, colored pants!
