The word “busy” does not come close to describing the every day to-do list of college students. From early classes to club meetings and a dinner with friends, finding time to breath, let alone change your outfit is nearly impossible. Building a versatile wardrobe, packed with basics and bold pieces is essential when transforming your outfit as a college Fashionista/o. To avoid tearing your closet apart, and the inevitable “I have nothing to wear,” plan a little smarter in the morning to save yourself some time later on.
The key to crafting a day to night outfit is mixing effortless casual pieces with items that are a little more exciting and can harmoniously transition into an evening setting. This Fashionista’s black leather combat boots and aqua blue button-down provide a great foundation for a daytime look, while her dark blue skinny jeans and classic striped blazer are items perfect for a night out. By pairing the ideas together, this Fashionista created a well-balanced, trendy outfit to go straight from class to a night out with friends.
Creating a versatile look does not have to drain your wallet. Keeping basics like colored tees and dark wash jeans in your closet gives any outfit a great start. Splurging on bold jackets and shoes can be a bit overwhelming, but the amazing feeling that comes with flaunting these items is priceless. The finishing touch to a remarkable outfit is always the accessories. I turn to Forever 21 for many of my accessories because of their constantly updated collections and affordable prices. A splash of sparkle or a printed scarf can infuse excitement and dress a look up for an evening occasion.
One Simple Change: When you do have time to invade your closet, swap out the jeans for a black mini skirt and combat boots for edgy booties to enjoy a fancy date night.
