As many undergrad students know, trudging to class can be quite a chore. How can you manage to be comfortable, warm and chic while making the trek? Just ask this Fashionista, whom I spotted looking exceptionally cozy and cute on her way to a circuits course — who’s to say you can’t have both beauty and brains? This Fashionista pairs basic black leggings with a casual cotton henley and a fur vest — an addition that adds style to any ensemble. Her Charles David “Regiment” boots were what initially caught my attention with their intriguing brown/gray color. Gray leg warmers add another dimension of texture to this Fashionista’s outfit; one that you can surely emulate for your next trip to class!
Name: Alex Valcourt
Major: Biomedical Engineering
CollegeFashionista: What style staple could you not live without?
Alex Valcourt: I practically live in my Splendid chunky sweaters.
CF: How would you describe your personal style?
AV: My friend once joked that I dress “hobo chic,” and I realized that it's such an accurate description. Comfort takes precedence in my wardrobe — I feel like I’m always wearing slouchy sweaters, leggings and layers.
CF: What is one item you’re looking to add to your wardrobe this season?
AV: I would love to try a pair of subtle, leopard print jeans, but I don’t know if I’m daring enough to pull those off. I think leather leggings would be a trendy alternative, too.
How To: I would advise pairing these BCBGMAXAZRIA leggings with a simple Urban Outfitters henley and BB Dakota fur vest. These rag & bone leg warmers would look perfect peeking out from atop some leather boots. That's all it takes to look comfortable and chic on your way to class like this Fashionista!
