For many, winter is the dreaded season. Winter wardrobes tend to be centered on a few things: warmth, coziness and lack of color. While some like to break out their brand new parka and snow boots, the excitement wears off by February. We’re in the final stretch of winter, but we still have a few more months of cold weather, so we might as well make the best of it! There are many ways to look fashionable and make it through the mid-winter gloominess.

Adding color to your outfits is one way to enhance your winter style. The focal point of this Fashionisto’s outfit is his maroon pants. While his cardigan and button-down would go with almost every color/kind of pants, he chose the deep-colored pants to elevate his outfit a little more. So many people mirror the dreary weather in their outfit by picking out neutral and dull colors. However, a colored pair of pants is such an easy way to stand out and make an outfit look more put together!

Another important element of this Fashionisto’s outfit is his layers. The button-down under the cardigan sweater is a classic look that anyone can sport. Not only is it fashionable, but it is comfortable and practical. Obviously, winter is the coldest season, and the more layers you wear, the warmer you’ll be!

One Simple Change: Love this layered look? This method can be used to create a casual outfit or a more formal outfit. By switching out the pants or shoes, it can transform itself and become wearable for a more formal occasion. Another option to achieve a similar look is to wear this with a pull-over, buttonless sweater instead of a cardigan. There are endless amounts of ways to achieve this classic layering style!
