Rumor has it that January and February are the coldest months in Stockton, California. But have no fear, juniors Rachel VanHorne and Carlos Castellanos are here to show you how to get through the cold weather.
Rachel and Carlos are each sporting an olive green jacket — a must-have piece of outerwear this winter — while rocking their own styles. Rachel paired a charcoal knit top with light wash jeans and heeled chestnut boots, topping it all off with a blush chunky scarf. Carlos has on a heather gray tee, slim fit dark rinse jeans and his favorite winter shoes, wheat Timberlands. He described the combination of slim pants with boots as a “fun contrast.”
This winter we’ve been seeing a lot of forest green, camel and the occasional red or maroon for the holidays. Chunky infinity scarves and beanies have been trending since last year, but turtlenecks, for men and women, have definitely made a visible comeback from the fashion archives this winter.
Not only do VanHorne and Castellanos stay on top of their game for everyday wear, but they also hit the gym fashionably. Carlos is not afraid to wear leggings with soccer shorts to beat the cold. An alternative he suggested was pairing shorts with high socks. For girls, Rachel commented that leggings are essential for going to the gym this season; donning a zip-up jacket on the way to the gym is also prudent. VanHorne is also in love with the trend of strappy sport bras and tank tops. Both were adamant about transitioning from Nike gear to Adidas apparel.
For the rest of winter, Carlos suggests you “be a little aggressive.” He owns a black pair of Timberlands to add edge to his outfits. He strongly urges against matching loose tops with loose bottoms, and leaves one lasting comment: “Who’s chic anymore? Do your own thing.” As for Rachel and her urban-casual yet classy sense of style, she isn’t afraid to add a pop of color, even in the midst of the monochromatic winter doldrums. Her advice is to “play with proportions and contrast.”proportions and contrast.”
