Let me wager a guess: You’re starting to get sick of jeans and sweaters.
Jeans and sweaters, jeans and sweaters, jeans and sweaters. It’s the only combination your closet can seem to talk about these days. It’s citing things like “the weather” and “practicality” and “you don’t want to be cold, do you?” No, you don’t, but just because all the leaves on the trees have been hibernating since November doesn’t mean your sense of sartorial adventure went off to hibernate with them, so the whole “JEANS AND SWEATERS” monologue is starting to get a little taxing.
That’s where part two of Man Repeller Winter Office Apropos comes in, superwoman-style, to administer a pick-me-up in the form of 20 winter outfit ideas that you can feel free to pitch to your wardrobe in the form of a PowerPoint presentation (here’s part one ICYMI). You’ll find some jeans and sweaters in the mix, of course, but you’ll also find butter-yellow leggings, green puffer coats, velvet clutches, puffy headbands, satin bombers, jaunty bandanas, skirt suits, overalls and sweaters peppered with human faces (I promise it’s way less creepy than it sounds). In other words, you’ll find a plethora of antidotes to your winter style doldrums — a spice rack, if you will, filled with unexpected, cold weather-approved ingredients for making your ensembles feel a little more special.
