ALL IN THE DETAILS: Patterned Perfection

These cold winter months call for some serious layering and, trust me, there is definitely a way to do so without resorting to that never-ending pile of sweatshirts piled in your closet. If anyone can show you how to do it, it’s this Fashionisto I spotted walking to class.

Fellas, we all know that your fashion choices are much more limited than us ladies but, why not shake things up a bit?

Despite our hesitation to rock them, patterns are our friend. No matter what your go-to style is I assure you that you can pull it off.

To start, find a statement sweater (preferably patterned) that catches your attention. If you have to hit the thrift shops, go for it. Thank you Mackelmore for inspiring us to shop “out of the box.” If you dig patterns, something like this might be right up your ally! Similar to this Fashionisto’s look, you can add a plain button-down shirt in any color that suits you. Paired with skinny jeans of your choosing and some knock out shoes and you are ready to take the school by storm.

No need to shy away from this trend, guys. You will stand out and become a style icon on campus. Who doesn’t want that; let’s be real. Remember, patterns are our friend.

How To: It sure is chilly during this time of year but have no fear, you can use this to your advantage and sport some crazy cool looks! Add a bit of spice to your wardrobe with one patterned piece (beware of overdoing it). Keep the rest of your outfit simple so as to not compete with your statement piece.
