ALL IN THE DETAILS: Easy Does It Quilted

There’s no doubt that quilted patterns have been in season once or twice these past few decades. From lightweight jackets to Chanel shoulder handbags, this textured print adds volume to any look. Quilted clothing gives comfort and warmth, but it also gives any Fashionista/o the satisfaction of rocking one of the biggest fashion trends for the winter season.

My favorite perk about this quilted pattern is that it is so easy to wear and it comes in many forms. Between the low end and high end clothing brands, each tends to pick up this texture in their fall/winter picks for the season. Through the racks of quilted coats, riding boots and joggers, this Fashionisto styles his own winter favorites. This Fashionisto pairs his quilted puffer vest with a clean white sweatshirt and some joggers. The quilted pattern does not just appear on the vest; if you look closely, this patched-up texture appears on the shoulders of his Forever 21 Men top. The quilted accent gives the overall outfit more of an edge and moto look.

His black biker sneakers pull the look together. Something as soft and gentle as a puffy quilted vest becomes more of an accessory to a masculine moto outfit. This look is one of my favorites for the winter season because it embodies some of the best fashion trends for guys. This Fashionisto does a great job playing around with quilted patterns, joggers and even keeping it cool with neutral, simple color palettes.

How To: Pick a quilted piece that speaks to you. I would personally reach toward oversized sweatshirts or unique sneakers. Use this piece as a statement as you begin to style the rest of your outfit. Keep it simple, but keep it you!
