ALL IN THE DETAILS: Splash into Floral

Winter break is the perfect time to unwind, relax, and regroup after a long, stressful semester, and what better way to do all this than in a tropical paradise!? Although the warm sun may be tanning our skin, we know we still always need the perfect outfit, even if we are spending our days basking in the sun’s rays. This Fordham Fashionisto demonstrates how to keep some floral in winter by showing us a sophisticated, yet playful look.

Can you tell what the attention grabbing aspect of this outfit is? Yep, you guessed it—the tie! This Lilly Pulitzer tie is bold and fun, and perfect for a tropical vacation. Although the tie dresses up the look, it in no way overwhelms the outfit with dressiness. Paired with this light pink Ralph Lauren button-down, each article complements each other in a fun and bold way.

However, this tie isn’t the only thing catching our eye. Check out that wrist candy! This KJP bracelet is the icing on the cake for prepsters everywhere. This is the perfect accessory for a bold outfit like this one. Just a simple bracelet such as this won’t overpower the outfit or seem like too much. This Fashionisto does a great job of allowing the focus to be on the tie, while letting simple, yet fun details peek through. Another example is his Vineyard Vines hook belt. This detail ties together the whole look with the use of a neutral color, allowing the whole outfit to shine together and not look unorganized.

Well Fashionistas/os, I hope everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable break! Here’s to a new semester and many outfits to come!

How To: Even though this outfit may be too tropical for a wintery climate, don’t be afraid to incorporate florals into your cozy winter looks! A floral scarf or sweater will brighten up and stand out during the dark days of winter.
