While it is nice to have the most expensive designer clothes, most college students are on a tight budget. In my opinion, being a true Fashionista means having the ability to take the basics of your wardrobe and create an outfit everyone on campus wants to wear. Less is definitely more when it comes to this week’s Fashionista. When most are tempted to add a print, she resisted and took solid pieces to build an outfit of extreme simplicity.
While I always stress the importance of jewelry, a ring on the first finger and a cute twisted scarf on her head proved to be the perfect amount. An oversized sweatshirt paired with tight leggings prevents the outfit from looking too sloppy. A peak of a periwinkle top breaks up the black sweater and leggings and adds a color to this otherwise dark look. The same technique is used with her gray, slouched socks to break up the black between her boots and leggings. Last but definitely not least she added an infinity scarf.
Pick a solid sweater like this relaxed V-neck one from Forever 21 in charcoal gray. Like the Fashionista this week, choose a T-shirt that is longer than your sweater to break up the dark top and bottom. By wearing a legging with texture, like this partially leather pair, it makes your ensemble more interesting. Combat boots are a great option to go with this relaxed look with crocheted socks from Free People slightly peeking over the top. Finish off the look with an infinity scarf and the perfect ring.
The next time you’re not sure what to wear, grab your basics and be a minimalist.
