The Hudson Valley is definitely one beautiful place. The ice covered river, the scenic views — they all add up to a stunning atmosphere. However, as is with any place, the weather is not always on our side as students and there is the occasional infamous rainy day. The day when no student wants to get out of bed, go to class or do anything productive. It’s a day to lounge around, read a book, catch up on some television time and drink a cup of tea. Now, on a gloomy day, a Fashionista has a pretty tough challenge to find a comfortable and appropriate outfit for the weather that does not involve the typical yoga pants or sweats.
This Fashionista has balanced all the aspects of her outfit perfectly. She has paired her black leggings with black rain boots, a maroon pajama button-down shirt and a knit infinity scarf. Black leggings are always a great go-to when in a hurry. They are cozy and can be utilized in a variety of different ways with multiple outfits. Leggings can be worn to the gym, the library, class and even out on the town with some friends! Their versatility makes them a great asset to have in the closet! Another necessity during those rainy days is a pair of rain boots. These have become more and more popular over the past few years with bright patterns and colors being introduced daily. This Fashionista has chosen to keep it simple with black waterproof boots. No one wants chilly wet feet during the day! Check out these Hunter Boots for a classic rain boot look. If you want to be more like this Fashionista here, buy a pair of waterproof boots like these from Target.
Now for the major part of this Fashionista’s outfit — her maroon pajama shirt. When most people hear about turning pajamas into daily wear, they assume flannel pants, maybe a sweatshirt or an old T-shirt. However, a button-down is a new item to add to the list. More and more Fashionistas are taking their chic bed-wear and transforming it into daily outfits. A similar looking pajama shirt from Forever 21 is a great buy. Dress it up or down depending on the occasion. To finish off her outfit the Fashionista throws on a knit infinity scarf and some fun bangles and rings and then calls it a day.
One Simple Change: By changing the leggings to tights with a black fitted skirt, this Fashionista will go from rainy day blues to casual date night in no time!
