In today’s world, being classy while maintaining a modern appeal to your wardrobe is a hard thing to come by. Many associate classy to old ideals of fashion and sometimes do not relate it to modern times. I personally have found it hard to find a balance not only in campus but in real life as well. Few fall under this, but perhaps the greatest examples are Kate Middleton and Michelle Obama. The latter, being exactly today’s Fashionista’s style icon.

My favorites are these from ModCloth but this one especially caught my eye. Pair it with some cute spike flats for an edge, DSW carries some with amazing colors.
