Just cause a pair of underwear is “hot” doesn’t mean it can’t inspire you to build a cool winter look around it. It’s all about the color. Sexy and yellow in winter? Not so much. Grey with some contrasting blue? Absolutely. We kick things off with the Clever Catay Boxer ($29.48) for this week’s Complete The Look: Clever. Check out the rest below.
The Clever Catay Boxer (1) gets its sex appeal from it’s modern trunk cut, and the semi-sheer material it’s made from. The Catay Boxer’s material is also made with a textured print, giving it a strong push in a stylish direction.
Next we put on the AG ‘Matchbox’ Slim Fit Jeans (2). The grey of the denim is darker than that of the underwear. This gives us something easier to build a winter look from, while still echoing the underwear we’re hiding underneath.
On top of that, we throw on the Vince Trim Fit Dip Dyed Crewneck Sweater (3). The dip dye design of the sweater starts off with a dark blue and fades into a lighter blue – one that’s still darker than our underwear’s waistband. In the end, our base look uses the same colors as our underwear, only darker and more appropriate for winter.
The Timberland Earthkeepers ‘Chestnut Ridge’ Apron Toe Boot (4) comes next. The boot is black and plays off the darkest parts of our sweater. It also contrasts our grey denim, making sure the black boots pop.
We finish with The Rail Houndstooth Ombre Scarf (5) and the Tumi ‘Mission – Bartlet’ Leather Crossbody Bag (6). The scarf’s houndstooth pattern brings white into the mix, making it an eye-catching accessory. The ombre though keeps it minimal, and echoes the dip dye look of our sweater.
We chose the bad for the same reasons we chose our boots. It’s black to contrast our denim and sweater choices, and matches the rest of our finishing touches.
