STYLE ADVICE: Winter's Must-Have

STYLE ADVICE: Winter's Must-Have

Winter can be a confusing season when it comes to fashion. With the weather conditions of snow, hail and rain, figuring out what to wear can be difficult. Everyone’s go-to method is layers, but sometimes you can still feel cold (especially if you live up north). You know what else is warmer than beanies and gloves? A jacket! Big puffy jackets can sometimes make you feel like a huge marshmallow and can over heat you sometimes. But if you find a jacket that’s stylish and cozy all at the same time, then you’ll start to love winter all over again.

In Seattle it doesn’t snow often, but when it does its pretty deadly. When it doesn’t snow its normally about 30-40 degrees Fahrenheit, so it always feels like you’re living in the North Pole! What I’ve noticed about people in Seattle is that they love to stay warm. People usually wear different types of jackets such as anoraks, parkas, bomber jackets or peacoats. Even though most people in Seattle wear jackets, they also rock these jackets with a beanie, scarves, and/or sweaters underneath their jackets.

This Seattle Fashionisto has grasped this concept by having the jacket being the staple of his outfit. He is wearing a thick (but cozy) olive green bomber jacket with a hood attached in the back. To give the outfit a layered feel, he has a long black zip-up hoodie that compliments the grey long T-shirt. For the bottoms he’s wearing black cotton material joggers that are cut up at the knees to give the joggers a more edgy effect. Lastly, for the shoes this Fashionisto is staying comfortable in a pair of black and white Nike Air Maxes with a light brown gum sole at the bottom.

This look is warm, cozy and stylish all at the same time! This is also a perfect outfit for any weather in Seattle. You can wear this outfit anywhere, no matter if you’re going to the grocery store, going out for a walk along the lake, or even out for the day in the city. During the rest of this extremely cold winter, wear a jacket. Jackets will be your new bestie this winter, and remember to stay warm!
