It’s no secret that menswear-inspired clothing has been sported by even the most feminine of females over the past few seasons. From Chanel to Jason Wu, the tailored blazer and trouser combination has been dominating the streets of the fashion capitols in quirky, fun ways. Although imitating the Fashionistos’ looks are limited to a smaller quantity of items like blazers, pants and button down shirts, Fashionistas can add their own spin on these pieces in the form of sparkly jewelry, sky high heels and of course, a killer handbag.
This week’s Fashionista is a prime example of how to pull off business chic in a college friendly way. She wears a blue color block blazer with a basic, white striped top and skinny black jeans. She paired her ensemble with blue suede heels and an adorable gold chain purse. What I love about the featured Fashionista’s look is that she has a good balance between looking professional, while still adding her own personal touch to keep her comfortable. Her outfit can easily take her from a class presentation right to happy hour with friends.
Creating a professional look that you can also feel comfortable in is an important ensemble that every Fashionista/o should acquire. With graduation and internship deadlines looming in the very near future, many students will be going on a lot of interviews in the next few months. Your look needs to be appropriate and put together, but also show off a little bit of your personality for the ultimate first impression. For example, the featured Fashionista could tweak her outfit by swapping her top for a white button down shirt and her skinny jeans with tailored trousers. Also, don’t underestimate the power of a unique scarf or a fun nail polish color. It’s the little details that will make you stand out!
