ALL IN THE DETAILS: S'winter 101

Well it is that time of year again. The trees are half filled with leaves and the other half with prickly branches. In other words, we have finally reached s’winter. You know, that confusing time of year when Earth lets out its inner KatyCat and cannot decide if it is going to be hot or cold. Yep, that means a month filled with constant weather checks for any changes because it can literally go from zero to 100 real quick. And trust, bad outfit choices will let you know the difference between 70 degrees and 50 degrees.

Despite the ever-changing weather, fashion has always had a few never-changing patterns. No matter the season it is always about the details. Whether that be a rare designer clutch or custom embroidery on a classic pair of jeans. The most important thing in fashion is that you make your outfit your own and hopefully do so while maintaining your comfort.

This month’s Fashionisto is no stranger to the idea of detail. A junior marketing student and artist here at T, he’s all about details. This quality is evident in his outfit. From his reversible orange camo puffer with subtle olive accents, to his small Coach wallet dangling from his belt strap. In his own words, “It’s all about the little things.” One of the biggest problems we fashion lovers face is letting accent pieces speak for themselves without letting that be the end all, be all of our statement but some make it look effortless. Strapped in a white Daytona cap and vintage San Francisco pullover, he’s laced with the perfect style to get through the cold and gloomy day.

If you have not already been able to tell from my previous articles, I am a pretty big Adidas enthusiast. Their shoes go with just about everything, (as seen above with this winning OG Superstar/Camo combination) and with weather that can change at the blink of an eye it is important to have an easy minimalistic pair of shoes to turn your ensemble from dram to glam. Wearing 2-in-1’s or layers that can transform from a warm look to a cool look are critical during this time as well. So, make sure you stay warm, stay cool, or stay cool and warm. Just try not to get caught suffering this s’winter!
