Fashionista Spotlight

Being a college student is not all fun and games. With a stressful work load week after week it is often difficult to put a substantial amount of effort into your daily fashion choices. With this in mind, it is important to remember that dressing in style can often lead to success. Instead of throwing on sweats on the morning of an exam, take a few extra minutes to put together a unique fashionable look. If you look good, confidence and success will follow. I spotted this Fashionista on her way to give a speech in one of her classes. She combined just the right amount of casual and classy all while making sure the outfit was appropriate for speaking in front of the class.

How To: It is always important to look your best while giving a speech in class. A classy and appropriate look lets the teacher know you are serious and prepared. To recreate this look throw on a pair of black jeans or jeggings as this Fashionista did. Next, add a button-down shirt with a color of your choice. To fancy up your look, layer that button-down with a fitted sweater. As for the shoes, choose a pair of riding boots that best coordinates with your outfit. Finally, add a subtle necklace and set of bangles to add just the right amount of pizzazz.
