Going out is the epitome of college. Though getting people together and establishing a concrete plan can prove challenging, the greatest test of all is choosing the perfect ensemble. Anticipating a slew of mobile uploads and run-ins, putting together an appealing look is not only crucial to your confidence but also to the success of your night. With Binghamton’s below freezing temperatures and continual chance for snow, accomplishing this becomes increasingly difficult. So, instead of relying on your best friends’ closets, develop a winter wardrobe adept for those blistery nights downtown.
This Fashionista’s seamless outfit contains key pieces for the occasion. Chiffon button-downs are the trusty option for college girls everywhere and continue to evolve with new trends. Her sleek, classic black one has a high-low fit and crisscross cutouts along the shoulders. Check out this Tobi alternative with an open back that leaves little to the imagination. Rather than freezing in shorts or a billowy skirt, opt for stretchy denim pants like these acid-washed skinny jeans from Necessary Clothing. During the winter months, there is a fine line between heels and flats. Grounds are typically icy and wiping out is neither graceful nor fun. Instead of settling for combat boots in these conditions, try a bold colored wedge like this Fashionista’s for a stable fit that provides the same boost as pumps. Finally, to carry around your nighttime essentials, add a chic cross-body pouch.
One Simple Change: If plans fell through and your winter night out has turned into dinner and a movie, save your heels for a later date and go for tall leather boots instead. With a fur vest over your shirt, the look is more casual and undeniably warm.
