When our days are filled with classes, meetings, extra-curriculars and more, we rarely have time to breathe, let alone pay attention to what we’re wearing. Putting our most fashionable foot forward is often at the bottom of our to-do list. When I spotted this Fashionista in Washington Square Park, my first thought was how simple and chic she looked even during one of the busiest hours of the day. With a high ponytail to keep her hair out of the way, cute and comfy flats and a fashionably functional Prada backpack, she is both comfortable and sophisticated. Mixing luxe fabrics like her leather shorts and jewel toned chiffon tank with fun details like her pastel blue nail polish and gold bracelets, she manages to be effortlessly put together.

How To: If you are not aready an owner of a pair of fabulous leather shorts, you should probably change that and try pairing them with a simple yet elegant chiffon top like Angelica does. Luxury ballet flats are always a sure way to be comfortable while looking stylish at the same time. Accessorize the simple look with gold bangles and add a fun nail color to mix it up.
