Happy New Years, Fashionistas and Fashionistos! Wow, 2015 went by so fast, I can barely believe it’s already 2016. If you walked into my closet, all you would see is black, black, black and black. Now that we’re almost half way through January, I can say that I have been pretty successful with one of my goals for this year, wearing more color. (yay!)
Color is always a bold choice for me, because black goes well with everything, and makes everything look fierce. I’ve found the more I wear color, the more I feel happy and cheerful! Since I live in Minnesota, the winters are long, cold and most of the time, unbearable, but this jacket really made a bright winter day, seem like spring is coming soon.
There was a trend last year, right around this time, that was a tribute to pop-culture icons, such as Barbie and McDonald’s, from Moschino’s fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection. It was a crazy, cartoonish and colorful collection, that really caught my attention. Which inspired this colorful, orange jacket.
Choosing more of a bold statement, I picked this orange active jacket. This jacket is so simple, yet at the same time is such a statement. It’s ridged, and has adorable little clasps in the back, allowing it to form perfectly to my body. It’s such a fun jacket to wear! Underneath, I put a simple white T-shirt with a longer back, just so that it added a little drama.
I went with a staple pair of cuffed blue jeans, so that my leopard booties could make a statement. These leopard booties are so much fun to style, and weirdly, they really almost work with everything. I thought that these leopard booties, really brought some pattern and funk to represent a pop-culture fad. For accessories, I added some blue mirrored aviators, which in my opinion, are a must-have for your closet. I also added a simple gold bar necklace to the look, just to add a little sparkle to everything. To top off the outfit, (ha) I paired this huge pom-pom neon yellow hat. Always a bold statement, but definitely a smart pick for the brisk cold winter.
This outfit definitely brings a lot of color in the middle of winter. Fashion in the midst of a Minnesota winter is always known as the chunky sweaters, dark colors and lots and lots of layers. This style really breaks it up and allows yourself to stand out.
