Now that the first week back to school has been checked off of the Fashionistos and Fashionistas’ checklists, it’s time to buckle down and start back in the world of actually working hard. While our brain power must be tapped once again, that’s never an excuse to forgo the thought it takes to put together fashionable ensembles to wear each day. Luckily, it takes only one extra step to bring your outfit from average to stylin’.
What begins as a nice, casual outfit with a simple red-and-blue striped sweater from Gap and blue jeans, starts to look more stylish with the addition of blue Vans, chosen to accent the blue stripes in the sweater. But, the one step that this Fashionisto took to amp up his style points was layering his blazer from Forever 21 over his sweater. One extra piece of clothing is all it takes to go from a college student to a Fashionisto.
Hint: If you have a presentation or audition in the middle of your day, you will want an outfit that is simultaneously easy to throw together and perfect for both school and your special event. A sweater will always look polished with jeans, and if you have something important to go to, make sure you are wearing nice shoes as well. Bring a blazer with you; you don’t even have to wear it all day if you don’t want to, and you can pull it on when it’s time to be professional. For an extra boost of style, when picking out your clothes, choose a sweater with stripes, because stripes always look good underneath a blazer.
