What to Wear

I don’t know about you, but I love to run errands. It makes me feel mature and important, because I have places to go and people to see. Even if that place is just CVS and the only person I have to see the cashier so I can buy all of my gum and anything else that was on sale. Regardless, while running errands, it is imperative to be comfortable. You also want to wear enough layers so that you won’t be tempted to check out any sale racks and try on clothes. More layers means more to take off which means less temptation; it’s almost a foolproof solution. Today’s Fashionisto is sporting optimal errand running gear with his lovely use of layers and accessories.

He starts off his look with a red and blue checkered button-down that complements his red hat. He adds on layers with a cool gray sweatshirt and an incredibly warm brown shearling jacket. Since threats of snow continue to scare all Bostonians (well, I’m afraid at least), we have to dress appropriately for whatever weather conditions approach, which is why fur lined outerwear is necessary. If you live in a snowy area, you know that a few inches won’t stop you from taking care of any errands.

While he stays warm on top, he keeps the bottom half simple with classic blue jeans and white lace-up sneakers. His final accessory is a blue denim backpack. I find that carrying a backpack for errands can actually be easier than lugging around a tote bag or purse. With a backpack, you also don’t have to worry about anything falling off your shoulder and it can usually hold everything you end up buying.

Run your next set of errands in style and plenty of layers. Keep your top half simple with a patterned shirt, sweater and warm fur lined jacket. This shearling biker jacket would be perfect for Fashionistas while this one would add plenty of style to any Fashionisto’s look. If your ears get cold, opt for a warm beanie. Throw on some jeans and stylish sneakers to keep you comfortable since you’ll be walking around for an hour or two. Finally, bring a roomy backpack so you can hold all of your reusable shopping bags (for groceries, not clothes) and anything else you might need.

One Simple Change: This outfit would also work for traveling if he swaps out the lace-up sneakers for a pair of slip-on shoes. After all, you don’t want to be that person taking forever to unlace their shoes in the security line.
