As Spring has begun to rear its excruciatingly warm head and an unfathomable amount of assignments have most likely stacked up, forming a seemingly limitless tower of mid-semester stress, it is entirely acceptable for one to wander through campus with their gazes affixed on the ground. Luckily for me, amidst this collegiate angst my gaze fell upon a glorious pair of boots that annihilated all instances of dread and left me with a chronic case of shoe envy.
This Fashionista styled these Jeffrey Campbell beauties impeccably, achieving an indescribably perfect balance of both tough and feminine, something that any fashion enthusiast would be in awe of. As with most powerful footwear, the key is to compliment rather than overshadow. A classic pair of high-rise pants accent these boots seamlessly, allowing this power accessory to take center stage. If you’re feeling extra gutsy (as was this Fashionista) and in need of a post-exam pick-me-up, a play on the ever popular, yet intimidating camouflage craze along with a statement making backpack are ideal additions, serving up a refreshing dosage of edginess and versatility as you waltz through campus.
As this Fashionista demonstrated, dainty, yet timeless detailing is the perfect fix for any of you style mavens who may find yourselves in somewhat of a styling rut concerning the infamous army jacket. Try this camo jacket from TopShop, with this great little number to hold those oh so dreadful books, and may your sartorial senses be fulfilled even on the darkest of days.
When it comes to crunch time, fashion is the ultimate escape, allowing us to free ourselves from those certain stresses that seem to weigh us down. This Fashionista’s ensemble was a much needed breath of fresh air, so in times of study suffocation push all hesitations aside and take that risky plunge!
