If you didn’t know, San Francisco was hit with a pretty brutal storm this week. After everyone was finished dodging the heavy rain, the weather officially made a drastic turn and the weather hit the low 50’s. With the very chilly and gloomy weather, everyone reached for their thick outerwear. While some San Francisco guys have been sporting the generic hoodies and plain jackets during this chilly and rainy weather, some Fashionistos have reached for more fashionable options like cardigans or pullover sweaters. I personally love cardigans on Fashionistos and this week’s Fashionisto shows us how cardigans are not only warm, but stylish as well.
Cardigans are an amazing alternative to hoodies. They’re not only cozy and comfortable, but are also very chic. They’re definitely an important essential that all Fashionistos should have in their closet and it’s okay to have one, two or three different styles. Shawl cardigans are my favorite, as they allow you to layer with a scarf or show off a skinny tie when you want to dress up.
To keep his outfit dapper, this Fashionisto wore a well fitted dark navy button-down. Button-downs are another cold winter essential that you can never have too many of. However, not all of them are made the same, so be sure to get one that fit you well around the shoulders and arms. For colder weather, grab a thicker, wool one to make sure you stay warm and to get a stylish, chic winter look. Pair your favorite button-down underneath a thin sweater or a cardigan like this Fashionisto did.
To complete his stylish outfit, this Fashionisto wore an amazing Skagen watch. I had never heard of this particular brand, but after perusing their website, I’ve definitely become a fan. They have a great variety of styles, but this Fashionisto’s watch is my favorite. I love how timeless it looks but it still looks stylish and modern. It’s important to have a refined and functional watch since you’ll wear it everyday.
I absolutely loved all aspects of this Fashionisto’s outfit. From his comfy cardigan to his sophisticated watch, he mastered the perfect cold weather outfit that is both very San Francisco, but also true to his own style!
One Simple Change: For an outfit that works for both day and night, simply add a tie to this button-down and grab your favorite leather or suede shoes.
