Accessories Report

This week brings Yalies to that special time of year: exam time. Leaving the fun of Spring Fling behind, we press on to long nights writing papers and studying for exams. The rain this week has been making staying in one spot quite easy, but when the sun comes out students can’t help but go outside for some fresh air. I spotted this Fashionista on her way back to her dorm from the library, during an interlude from the rain.

Sporting her grey rain jacket and black rain boots this Fashionista remains stylish even in the poor weather. I remember, not too long ago, while going on my college tour, how amazed I was at the various rain boots I saw all over campus. I never realized how much functional footwear could add to an outfit, whether it is by completing a simple and chic look like the one exhibited by this Fashionista, or by adding a fun pop of color against the boring backdrop of a rainy day. Rain boots can be the perfect accessory to brighten up even the dreariest of days.

Upon closer inspection, I noticed the monogrammed necklace worn by this Fashionista. Her initials are engraved on a simple silver oval shaped pendant and make for a very sophisticated touch to her casual outfit. It seems that these personalized necklaces have grown in popularity since Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw popularized the trend in the hit HBO sitcom Sex and the City.  Her hoop earrings add an overall laid back vibe to finish off her perfect study outfit.
