The sky has faded to gray, the once-vibrant trees are bare, and the freezing air makes it nearly intolerable to even step outside. It’s the dead of winter and whether we like it or not, our wardrobes are beginning to reflect the depressing weather. But, it doesn’t have to be this way! What if, instead of reflecting the dreary season with monochrome clothing, we added a pop of color to wake up not only our outfits but our souls as well? After all, as author Albert Camus once wrote, “In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.”
This Fashionista found her invincible summer, and it came in the form of brightly embroidered jeans. Dressing boldly during winter doesn’t mean you have to overload on neon or stand out head to toe; it just means adding a pop of color here and there to liven things up. As you can see, this Fashionista opted for a simpler top, jacket, and shoes so that her statement piece and accessories could really shine through. The vintage-inspired jeans played a starring role, because they brightened the entire look with floral embroidery and edgy slits around the ankles.
In the supporting roles were a fuzzy, gray cropped sweater and fluffy, black overcoat, the perfect choices to keep this Fashionista warm on her commute to class. Black Vans sneakers were complemented by a bold, black belt; and a cross necklace, earrings, and a unique septum nose ring completed the look.
As proved by this Fashionista, it isn’t difficult to bring your own beam of sunlight into a cloudy winter day. Just mix in some bright statement pieces with your usual winter attire, and watch your own invincible summer shine through.
