An Instant Trick to Make Your Cold-Weather Wardrobe More Interesting
Cold weather brings in a lot of darker, jewel-tone colors to match the feel of the season. And while we welcome the shift to deeper shades, it can lean a little too hard into monotony. An easy way to break it up: Add a pop of neon detailing to shift the entire feel of an outfit. It'll make the look instantly more dynamic. Here's how to wear it.
With a T-Shirt
What better way to make a statement than with an easy T-shirt? This Stussy one is a standout orange color, which is unexpected in a fall wardrobe. Further explore its inherently nostalgic vibe by wearing it with light wash jeans and Vans. Add a lightweight navy jacket to bring it into fall.

With a Sock
This is the single least committal way to do something risky: with a sock. Wearing colored socks with suits is tired, but a neon sock with tapered denim is fresh—and much cooler. We've been into the idea of crew socks and loafers for a while, and this is the perfect opportunity to try it; it's unconventional, but still somehow works. Pair it with a hoodie to tone down the dressier shoe. Olive green works well with neon.

With a Sneaker
A neon sneaker is about as loud as a sneaker can get. To properly balance it, keep the rest of your look monochromatic; all the attention will go straight to your feet. An all-black outfit ensures just that—plus the sweatshirt's graphic nods to the shoe's colorway.
