Let’s face it, what Fashionista/o doesn’t dream of Paris? It’s a major fashion capital of the world known for timeless, tailored, impeccable style. We might be thousands of miles away from this stylish city, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be inspired by the immaculate style the French are known for.
I was in awe of how put together this Fashionista looked despite the fact that it was one of the busiest, most stressful weeks on campus. She wore a black and white striped sweater, a pair of dark skinny jeans and an olive blazer. She gave the look a pop of color with her bold red scarf and added tan perforated loafers and a tan oversized tote to top off the look. Her black beret not only made this look Parisian chic, it also kept her warm on an unusually chilly October day.
Even though there are plenty of fabulous trends to try this fall, your classic wardrobe staples will always be in style. One item that’s a must-have is the striped shirt. No matter what your style is, a striped shirt is a crucial piece for any Fashionista. This pencil-stripe pullover from Madewell is an incredibly cozy option, while this striped ribbed T-shirt from Forever 21 is a fabulous find for those conscious about their budget.
A striped shirt is one of the most versatile pieces a Fashionista could own. Pair it with a bold, full skirt, a pair of dark skinny jeans and boots or layer it under a blazer. The styling possibilities are endless!
