ALL IN THE DETAILS: Frosty Weather, Bold Jackets

The idea of wearing something bold is intimidating. We’ve all pulled out a top from our closets only to reluctantly put it back. It’s either too flashy or bright, but so cute. It’s a battle of ambivalence we’ve experienced countless of times. Binghamton’s infamous winters have left many people wearing the black and gray tones synonymous with the season. This makes it even more difficult to make a daring fashion statement without feeling out of place. One way of being bold in your fashion decisions is through your choice in outerwear, because you’ll maintain comfort and subtlety like a superstar.

Outerwear is a winter essential, but your choice between the different styles is completely up to you. As layering and bundling up become a part of your daily winter routine, investing your personal taste allows you to put a unique twist to a necessary piece in your cold weather collection. Fashionista/os have chosen to assert their distinct styles by donning classic wool coats, sleek fur jackets or minimal parkas that can be paired seamlessly with anything in their wardrobe.

This Fashionista chose to brighten her winter collection with a tan faux shearling jacket. Ramping up the flair, she threw on a cream bell-sleeved knit sweater and a selection of small gold necklaces to coordinate with the warm hues of her ensemble. Alongside the bold statements already made in her topwear, she chose to finish off her look with minimal black jeans, knee-high socks for warmth and a pair of tall quilted boots for added texture in her attire.
