Right before running towards my dorm room to avoid the brisk cold weather, I spotted this Fashionista and the first thing I thought of was how jealous I am because she must be so warm under all her layers! This trendy student was on her way back from grabbing Starbucks on campus when I approached her. She was able to mix and match all of the top trending items of this season in one outfit: the classic plaid shirt, the ever-chic parka jacket, the faux fur vest and the Chelsea ankle booties. This Fashionista kept with the trends while being able to stay warm in the winter by layering up.
