As seen above, it's always nice to be able to tie the colour scheme all together. It makes it look like she put the effort in without trying too hard. The colour of the hat matches the colour of her pants. Now match does not mean that it is the exact same colour but rather it is in the same colour family as her pants. This is one of those warm and comfortable outfits. Perfect by my student fashion standards.
I honestly think Jennifer G. is amazingly pretty. I cannot get enough of her style on Lookbook.nu. She has an air of effortlessly pulled together - which I am in awe of. The photo above is how I wish I could dress on a daily basis: neutral, feminine, casual and yet pull together. I love how she wears her slouchy beanie and matching infinity scarf. Perfect for warmth and style. What makes this outfit so easy is that it is neutral and monochromatic. When it doubt, black and white always work. Her legs are elongated by the black wedge boots and black tights and the look comes together nicely with the black messenger bag, scarf and toque. Another case of effortless and chic.
Last but not least for this post, this is Virgit C. of PreppyFashionist - another inspiration on lookbook.nu. This lovely lady has a way with clothes and is constantly pulled together. To me, her main arsenal accessory? Hats. You must check her out if you're looking on how to pull a hat off. In the look above, she dons a lovely wide brimmed velvet hat that compliments her 'oxblood velvet skirt' to a T. This is oh so sunny-day-winter appropriate that it makes me smile. Oh to be able to wear this to class! If it wasn't for those gosh darn backpacks, I would! I am in love with wine-reds and reddish plums or the so called 'oxblood'. Really though, it's crimson or burgundy or maroon. I still love it. Now this type of hat is almost contrary to a toque or beanie. It provides little warmth and more fashion. It;s about those bad hair days or those times when you want to feel a little bit more glamorous. Think big sunglasses, floppy wide-brimmed hats and red/plum lips. Done. Pulls the outfit together and instantly gives her an air of class. chic. effortless. Love it.
