Style Advice of the Week

Denim, camouflage and flannel are three of the coolest fabrics of the season, but did you know that you can wear them layered all together? Well, this Fashionisto sure isn’t lacking any of the fall runway and street trends. He flawlessly combined the different textures and prints to create this eye-catching, Holy Grail street style ensemble.

He started with jeans, a white T-shirt and some cream lace-up shoes. Then he layered on the goods — first a red plaid flannel tied around his waist, then a button-up camouflage jacket and finally, a vintage denim Levi’s jacket. Even the little details of his outfit, like the single denim cuffed ankle and wrist, add to the quirky and laidback feel of this look.

If you have the confidence this fall to try pattern mixing and layering like this Fashionisto, check out this vintage flannel on Etsy, this camouflage jacket from Karmaloop and this vintage denim Levi’s jacket from eBay. Don’t forget that all of these things can also be found in your local thrift stores for a cheaper price! Being on trend doesn’t always have to be expensive or inaccessible. 

If designers like Versace, Kenzo, Timo Weiland, Michael Kors and Burberry are all on board with camouflage, flannel and denim for fall and winter 2012, then what else is there to say? Layer on one, two or even three of these classic patterns and fabrics this fall. I guarantee you will stay warm during the season and be the envy of everyone on campus.
