Here comes the snow. That’s how the Beatles said it, right? Well, the snow has started falling in Syracuse and I’m honestly a little excited. The cold weather brings the amazing opportunity to pull out your best layers and play with your favorite pieces. This is the time when you can pair pieces together you normally wouldn’t because you’re looking for that extra layer to keep warm. It’s a common misconception that you can’t look cute and be warm at the same time, and this Fashionista clearly proves it is possible.
Name: Madison Wright
Major: Public Relations
CollegeFashionista: Tell me a little about your personal style.
Madison Wright: I like sticking to classic, staple pieces that are timeless so I can wear them for a long time. I keep a minimalist style and play with fun accessories to change things up a bit. I always try to keep it comfortable, but cute at the same time.
CF: What are your wardrobe staples?
MW: Large, chunky scarves! I start wearing them in fall for some added warmth and continue layering with them throughout the winter. I love them because they add the illusion that I made an effort on those days when getting fully ready is just too much.
CF: What are you excited to wear as winter approaches?
MW: Layers! I love layering knit cardigans with colorful scarves and adding some cozy socks under my riding boots. I love wearing a classic peacoat and adding a fun knit headwrap
CF: What influences your style?
MW: I love taking notes from the people around me. I am constantly admiring what other people are wearing and I try to incorporate certain aspects into my wardrobe. My friends and classmates styles inspire me to pick and choose unique looks and mix them together to make my own.
How To: Instead of falling into the trap of wearing a North Face parka paired with Ugg boots and sweatpants every single freezing day this winter, spring for a look much similar to this Fashionista’s. Remember that layering is key in this situation. I love the idea of wearing a red peacoat. It keeps your look interesting without having to go that extra mile. Pair it with your favorite pair of black leggings, a simple blouse and a killer knit cardigan. Don’t forget how important accessories are in the winter; wear a chunky scarf, a fun headwrap and your best boots to stay warm. The snow might damper your day, so why not try a “look good, feel good” attitude this winter.
