Although I’m not very fond of the cold weather, I do love how snow transforms the campus into a snowy dreamland. Covering bare branches and building tops, I’m always distracted by the beauty on my way to class (which helps me forget about my numb toes). While walking around after a mini morning blizzard I spotted this Fashionisto in a pair of Dr. Martens reminiscent of spring, which almost made me wish the snow would melt.
Wearing bright colors, prints and florals are great ways to stand out against the freshly fallen snow. Not only will it liven up your look, but also the dull gray atmosphere. This Fashionisto rocks a vibrant stripped bag paired with bold boots—a winning combination for his cold weather outfit. The remaining garments and accessories are neutrals, highlighting his pop of color and print. To keep warm he wears a cozy lined jacket with the hood up and sleeves slightly rolled for style. He adds a slight twist to his look by layering a casual hat with a bold emblem under his hood. With his unique headphones and chic shades his ensemble gives off a Tom Cruise, Top Gun vibe, which allows him to stand out in a swarm of cold students.
This Fashionisto demonstrates how cold weather outfits don’t need to be mundane. You can still bundle up in style with the right accessories. Fashionistas, find a vibrant colored (or patterned) coat and a funky pair of rain boots with warm socks. For the guys, rock a crazy hat or find some interesting combat boots like this Fashionisto. Add a little color to your look so you can complement your rosy cheeks and Rudolph-red nose.
One Simple Change: For a more professional look, trade in the floral boots for a black pair and the stripped bag for a chic leather cross-body. Fashionistas, add a chic scarf over a peacoat to instantly polish your outfit.
