WHAT TO WEAR: Cold Weather

What to Wear

Winter is coming. (Sorry I couldn’t resist!) On top of finishing up your classes and acing your finals, the holiday season has officially arrived. But before you pack your bags and head back home for winter break, I wanted leave you with a few style inspirations for the cold weather. This week’s column is for all you Fashionistos who want to update that winter wardrobe of yours!

I spotted this Fashionisto on a chilly afternoon and literally chased after him to capture his outfit. For girls, it’s a bit simpler to decide on cold weather outfits: leggings, peacoats and boots are the usual winter go-to pieces for us. But what of those for the guys? Luckily this Fashionisto displays the perfect men’s winter essentials. A nicely fitted sweater, pair of slacks and a scarf are all the what you guys need to look just as stylish as women do during colder weather.

But first, for all you Fashionistos who would rather not spend the day searching for winter essentials at the mall, I’ve made it super easy for you. Look no further than my eBay Winter Essentials collection here for any easy one stop shopping spree!

I loved the color palette of this Fashionisto’s outfit and his H&M navy sweater complements his grey pants perfectly. A combination of grays and navys are a great color palette to wear during the winter instead of the usual black. His slim fit sweater and pants are also definitely a great alternative to the usual hoodie and jeans and you can find a similar sweater here and pants here. This winter, feel free to play around with different colors but just make sure they work well together like this Fashionisto’s pieces.

Like I’ve said in one of my previous columns, watches are to men like handbags are to women, you can never have too many! They’re an essential accessory for any Fashionisto’s wardrobe and this Fashionisto’s was a particularly cool. I loved the style of it and you can shop his watch here.

No cold weather outfit would be complete without a scarf and though some men shy away from wearing them, this Fashionisto didn’t and I loved it.  A scarf like his is a winter must-havel and I absolutely loved how simply he tied it. Don’t be afraid to buy different color scarves this winter and you can find his scarf here. He looked stylish, dapper and completely winter appropriate.

Make sure this December you aren’t stuck with the same old jeans and hoodies. Instead grab some pieces that are sure to refresh your winter wardrobe!

One Simple Change: Simply grab a black peacoat or leather jacket and you have the perfect day to night outfit for a night out with the boys!
