Although pink shirts (ginghams more so than oxfords, I believe) are often considered summer wear, I enjoy wearing them in the winter as long as they’re paired with items that unequivocally evoke the curent season—in this case winter. The bow tie with a skiing motif helps drive the point home, as do the down vest and Fair Isle V-neck sweater.
Apropos of this tumblr’s theme, I feel I ought to inspire readers with the budget with which this look was attained. The sweater is several seasons old from J Crew, and was, if I recall correctly, purchased on clearance for $19. The down vest was purchased from Lands’ End’s recent additional 40% off sale, and clocked in at around $18. The shirt was bought some time last year in another of Lands’ End’s epic sales, and is their tailored fit cut with a button down collar—I believe it was $12. The bow tie was a Christmas gift.
