WHAT TO WEAR: Wintertime Neutrals

WHAT TO WEAR: Wintertime Neutrals

It’s been nothing but snow these past few weeks, and I’m loving it! Before spring arrives, let’s take one last look at a classic approach to a winter day outfit for the city.

Although the chill continues to roam outside, this Fashionisto is keeping warm on the inside with cozy stripes and khaki staples. I love the use of safe, neutral tones—especially when it comes to winter. I think earthy colors like dark gray, maroon, brown, and navy blue are perfect to strut in the snow before spring arrives with bright patterns and pastels. His earthy tones perhaps reflect the mood of his city destination, as he traveled to Manhattan later that day. Especially during the winter daytime, Manhattan is alive and well, even when its passersby sport almost nothing but basic colors and neutral tones.

What I didn’t expect was the hidden pop of pattern from his socks, though. The socks still keep with the outfit’s theme of earthy colors, yet include a funky pattern that complements his ASOS sweater well. The socks’ triangular and rectangular straight-line design of stripes also fits well with the sweater’s two-striped color scheme—both in shape and in color palette. He also plans to balance his neutral colors with matching khakis from Tommy Hilfiger and khaki Sperry Top-Siders. This outfit is comfortable yet fashionably in season. I love the color scheme for this time of year. Spring is right around the corner, and I can’t wait for it—but until then, wintertime fashion is the way to go!
