With the semester rolling to a close, it’s necessary for all college students to stay calm, cool and collected rather than let the stress of exams overwhelm them. Some may turn to yoga or winding down to their favorite TV show at the end of the night. Yet, ask any true Fashionista and she’ll say that the best way to keep her calm on is to reflect it in her attire. This Fashionista chose a fantastic light blue button-down that gives the feeling of ease and calm, making it almost impossible not to hold a carefree attitude.
When you first look at this girl you see the sky blue button-down, but upon further investigation you see the extra effort she put into making a wearable and comfortable look for class. Yellow and blue is one of my favorite combinations, not only because they are Marquette University’s colors, but also it portrays that carefree vibe that I love. Adding a great pop of color in her necklace really gave focus to her outfit and emphasized the neutrals in her look. Pops of color only help an outfit shine, and this girl’s necklace really shines like the sun. Speaking of her neutrals, the oxfords she rocked transforms the look from a girly, wear-to-class outfit, into a fashion-forward everyday look. It’s great to have pieces that help you step outside of your comfort zone, literally and figuratively.
Easy suggestions to transform this look into another outfit would be take the oxfords and add them to your favorite downtown dress. That way when going out with friends you’ll feel more comfortable rather than in heels or wedges. Remember that too many accessories are never an issue as this Fashionista showed off and pops of color really do make the difference!
