When December draws near you usually think of cooler temps, chunky sweaters and several layers. December in Charleston is the complete opposite. While other campuses were bundled up this week, Charleston consisted of bright skies, lots of skin and highs of 76 degrees. I guess you can say CofC was hit with the finals fairy because nothing is more perfect then stepping outside to warm sunlight the morning of exams. The Fashionista I caught on the way to class didn't look the least flustered by finals as she smiled ear to ear on this beautiful day. She soaked up sun in a rocker chic ensemble consisting a sleeveless graphic tee, jeans and combat boots. This Fashionista can easily throw on this playful moto jacket or an oversized blazer with this fit to continue her rocker look while adding a layer for later when the temperature tends to drops.
My favorite part about this look has to be the accessories—everything from her blue hue boots from Urban Outfitters to her vintage inspired specs. I've always been a huge fan of glasses. Although I have never needed them, I'm intrigued by the craze of colors, prints and styles out now for glasses. I've recently come across a site with some fresh eye wear that is cool and meets a college student's budget. Warby Parker eyewear is stylish, custom fit, has optical lenses, frames and sunglasses. This brand creates updated and refreshed classic vintage frame styles that are created with custom cellulose acetate and titanium. The lenses used have anti-reflective and scratch coating and polycarbonate that make them lighter and protect eyes from UV rays. Plus with every pair of glasses that are sold, a pair will be given to someone in need.
Fashionsitas tend to gravitate towards designer frames because of the funky colors and prints. But those labels will have you seeing double what you intended to spend. So whether you are wearing glasses because they are a necessity, or just as a playful accessory, get the best for your buck while not having to negotiate style. Warby Parker eyewear is ideal for Fashionistas who need something fresh, classic, durable and most importantly, inexpensive.
