No matter what season you're in or what outfit you're wearing, a high bun is always an appropriate hairstyle. It's hard to believe that something so simple and elegant is easy enough for anyone to do. This transitional hairstyle can go from day-to-night, which makes it suitable for class and for a night out with the girls. I love how perfectly this CollegeFashionista represents the high bun ideal. She explained to me that she used the “sock bun” method to attain this amazing hair-do, which literally involves putting a sock in your hair before forming the bun. I had never heard of this before, but after reading this sock-bun tutorial, I am excited to give it a try!
Aside from this Fashionista's modern approach on a classic hairstyle, I was also attracted to the casual elegance of this trendy outfit. Fur has been paving its way in the fashion world for decades, but only recently have CollegeFashionistas embraced the long-standing trend. Rather than put a dent in your wallet by purchasing the real deal, you should check out some faux fur vests that are available at Urban Outfitters and Nordstrom. This Fashionista upped the ante by rocking an affordable cheetah-print version from Forever 21 where a similar leopard-print vest is still available.
Since the cheetah-print vest is worn as a statement piece, this Fashionista dressed down the rest of her outfit by wearing a black V-neck sweater and Vigoss skinny jeans, both from Nordstrom. As final touches to this casual spin on some classic styles, she topped off her outfit with tan oxford flats and gold cluster accessories from Stella & Dot. This Fashionista's contemporary take on classic styles such as the high bun, fur outerwear and oxford footwear is what pulled this whole look together. Bundle up in fur and you can add instant polish and class to your look too.
