STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Not-So-Cold Shoulder

When we think of winter we usually think it means being covered head to toe in heavy, bulky layers. While this may be true most of the time, (especially in Kent, Ohio) it doesn’t have to be! How does one even show off a little skin even in the frigid cold one might ask? This Fashionista shows us exactly how to do just that.

At first glance her outfit looks like a classic winter ensemble. Equipped with a stylish olive utility jacket, she is ready to brace a chilly walk to class. This jacket is perfect because of all of the details within it as well. The various pockets are ideal for carrying gloves, hats and even scarves! You can find a similar style to hers here.

The utility jacket was paired with an ombré peach sweater that complements the olive green effortlessly. Pops of color like this are so refreshing after seeing what seems like endless days of gray skies and white snow! The best aspect about this sweater is something so hidden that if you blink, you might just miss it. You guessed it, it’s the clever cutouts in the shoulder! This Fashionista proves that you don’t have to limit yourself to a typical winter sweater. Try switching it up with this kind that has clever cutouts to add a component of surprise to your look!

Lastly to top the outfit off this Fashionista decided to keep her look timeless with none other than a pair of Converse high-tops. These shoes are essential to any wardrobe especially since they come in so many diverse styles and colors! Whether it be a pair of high-tops, low-tops or even some made of leather, they’ll always be in style.
