A great coat is probably the most essential item for Fashionistas who live on a campus that involves walking around in the midst of winter. A fashionable outer layer for the winter months is key to great street style in Wisconsin and this Fashionista sported the perfect look for the chilly walk throughout campus.
This Fashionista made the staple of her wardrobe a gray and navy wool color block coat. These coats are fashion forward and differ from your every day parka or trench coat. Color blocking is a where two colors are combined to create a bold look and depending on the colors sometimes it is bright and sometimes it’s more subdued like in the photo. When wearing a color block coat go for a pair of skinny jeans and boots to keep the focus mainly on the jacket. If your style is laid back then I would keep the colors of the jacket simple and dark like this Fashionista, however, if your style is more edgy then go for more contrasting colors like tan with black leather sleeves.
Because the jacket is the focus of the overall outfit, keeping the rest of the layers simple is important. Add fun details to the outfit with the accessories. Brown lace-up boots are comfortable to walk in and go well with the neutral colors of the outfit. Also keep in mind that a great clutch and some cool jewelry are great finishing touches to an outfit. If you think that you have too many neutral colors when replicating an outfit like this Fashionistas then wear a bright colored nail polish as a colorful detail. Finally tie the look together with a scarf and embark on your Fashionable journey in your fabulous new coat.
