The weather here in Missouri has been pretty unpredictable the last couple days. If you live anywhere in the Midwest, you’re probably experiencing something similar! This can have a large impact on what to wear for those long, freezing cold walks to your 8:00 a.m. classes. The trick is to not sacrifice style while staying warm. The key to dressing for this type of weather is layering! Layering is a great way to keep up with the constantly changing weather.

This Fashionisto chose the perfect outfit to combat the constantly changing weather while still looking classic and comfortable. He chose a heavy knitted cardigan and paired it with a light t-shirt. This is great for those chilly classrooms. I also like that the cardigan has elbow patches, which adds an “effortlessly cool” element to the outfit. He then chose long khaki pants and his favorite Vans to finish the look.

Lastly, one my favorite parts of this outfit is the beanie. This is such a simple accessory, but I think it adds a lot to the outfit. A beanie is one of my favorite accessories because it is not just an hat, it is also functional! It is great for keeping you warm on those chilly walks across campus to class. Beanies are a great staple accessory that everyone should have in their closet. The possibilities are endless!

One Simple Change: Dress up this look instantly by adding your favorite peacoat to take this look from the classroom to brunch with friends!
