While most people are likely to sport neutrals for the winter season, some Fashionistas/os seem to step outside of the box. This week’s Fashionisto loves his intricate prints and vibrant colors. He also does a new way of layering to block the freezing temperature.

The Fashionisto’s eye-catching camouflage jacket is the key piece in his outfit.  This jacket features cool logo patches to modernize the conventional military print. However, wearing it alone is not enough to endure the cold. The Fashionisto layers an ultra light down jacket underneath. The unique design provides warmth and is thin enough to wear another outerwear on top.  He wears a pair of dark denim jeans with sneakers that have bright shoelaces and fun prints. The contrast shared from the dark denim makes his prints pop even more. Lastly, he wears a navy beanie with colorful red letters to set another print. The accessory works well with the rest of his outfit and does not clash.

Wearing colors and bold prints is unexpected at this time, and that is why it’s fun to break trends. Keep in mind that no matter what outfit theme we are going for, it is important to stay warm. Layer up two jackets if needed as the Fashionisto demonstrated and make sure we zipper them up. Let’s never underestimate the cruel winter.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I like to stay casual while maintaining the interesting factors. That’s why I wear bright colors and prints. They also lift up my personality.”
