For some odd reason, the amount of black in everyone’s closet seems to grow as the winter months approach. Not just black but brown and navy too. Fashionistas/os mustn’t forget black's favorite partner in crime — white! Or cream, which is a variation of the color white. Cream is a classic and elegant color that needs to be incorporated into your wardrobe as the temperatures start to cool. You don’t have to disregard your beloved dark clothes but make some room for lighter options as well. The juxtaposition of light and dark colors is a perfect combination as demonstrated by this Fashionista.
In the photo she paired a cream colored sweater with a teal and lace skirt. She then juxtaposed the sweater and skirt against a pair of opaque black tights. Tights are a fashionable alternative to leggings and pants. They can be worn with dresses and shorts or as this Fashionista demonstrates, with a teal skirt. What makes this outfit fashionable for a cold day is the classic colors of black and cream separated by a colorful skirt. Instead of making your outfit just black and white, do as this Fashionista has done and throw on a color in the middle. If you want to spice up the look to make the outfit more personal, try a pair of patterned tights or a textured skirt.
This Fashionista keeps her look elegant by wearing a cream colored scarf on top of her sweater. People often assume that your scarf has to stand out but matching it to your sweater makes the look seem effortless and subdued. Finally, throw on a pair of boots. I suggest these Killian boots to walk your way about campus in a classic outfit with a colorful twist.
