Growing up, who didn’t have aspirations of obtaining a unique superpower and using it for good to save the world? Then as we approached college and began looking at the curriculum and lists of majors it became almost too evident that we would have to choose a different career path. The odds of being bestowed something supernatural lessened along with the lucrative attractiveness of the job. If you are still harboring a little angst about not following this childhood fantasy I’ve got good news for you! I stumbled upon a way to incorporate a little piece of Superhero status into your daily wardrobe. Although this may not give you the ability to magically retain all the material to your biology exam as you hastily study a few hours prior, it is sure to make you feel like you can take on the day. Side effects may include power walking a little faster when you’re late to class this semester.
That’s right, with no pills to swallow and spending no extra time at the gym this week you can look just a strong and powerful as this Fashionista. It’s simple. Make an impressive statement by finding one piece to wear that makes you feel powerful and ready for action, you are sure to stand out and be noticed. This Fashionista chose a vintage cuff. Don’t stress about hitting up your local vintage shops on the weekend, I have found many antique inspired cuffs with a quick search online that will give you the same look without leaving your dorm. For a longer ‘stop and stare’ moment I like this KTZ Tarot Brass Cuff. If you want something to stack, I’ve been eying this Giles & Brother Railroad Spike Cuff for months.
No superhero ensemble is complete without a great crime fighting, butt kicking, take no prisoners shoe. A traditional mid-calf lace up boot like the one shown is perfect for a day out. The night owl has a lot of choices for a super(ior) look too, this pair of Jefferey Campbell for Free People is definitely worth a quick click.
It is easy to incorporate a few pieces without feeling like you are prepping for a Halloween party. Every Fashionista/o needs to have at least one piece that gives you the sense of being able to take on it all, especially in college. We know it takes superhuman powers to get through four years of late night study sessions.
Spotted: For any Fashionista/o, trying to play into this tough trend for fall, a quick perusal of this collection by Billy Reid is bound to give you some inspiration. Reid’s use of leather and juxtaposition of hard and soft fabrics create a dynamic look fit for the campus crusader.
