ALL IN THE DETAILS: Knitted Ambience

Since returning to the eastern half of the United States from my studies abroad, I noticed an increase in temperatures far above the usual December digits. The holiday season has come along, but the weather seems to be lagging. This has resulted in a continuation of fall layers and knits and the pivotal pieces of the transitioning fall to winter season have become key components in any Fashionista’s outfit. It is not yet cold enough pack on the heavy winter layers, but still crisp enough to add the essential winter accessories to any simple outfit.

This Fashionista makes perfect use of a staple accessory in everyone’s closet. A chunky, oversized winter scarf can add the perfect amount of coziness into a simple fall outfit, and can easily be added on as an extra layer in the delayed winter season. Pair this accessory with simple, black skinny jeans, ankle booties and a contrasting knit sweater. Throw on an oversized blazer, as this Fashionista did, to add a sleek side to a relaxed outfit. The color blocking seen in the knit sweater adds dimension to an otherwise simple outfit, and it can be worn long or tied up around the neck for the brisker winter days.

How To: An oversized scarf can easily be paired with a simple outfit like this Fashionista’s. Do it yourself with your favorite pair of jeans and a sweater. Embrace the warmer weather and pair the sweater and scarf combination with a pair of ripped jeans for a laid back effect. Once the weather gets cooler, do not be afraid to add on the layers with an oversized blazer or jacket of your choice for a comfortable and stylish winter outfit.
