STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: A Comfortable Classic

Style Advice of the Week

Picture this: it’s a Friday and you only have one more afternoon lecture to attend before your weekend starts, and since you worked overtime in the beginning of the week, you’re off for the day. Later that night, you have plans to go to the local museum and get dinner with your friends. It’s a day of no major obligations and much needed recuperation after a long week of work and midterms. So, the question is, what do you wear?

It’s days like these that call for the classic combination of jeans, a shirt and a fitted jacket. This chic ensemble has been revisited year after year, and seen on the latest celebrities to the coolest runway models to the most renowned magazine editors. It not only showcases the classic American textile but also allows for the cleanest palate to advertise everyone’s individual and unique personal style.

I spotted this Fashionista and instantly admired her way of styling this classic look. Her dark wash jeans looked great paired against her bright orange blouse, layered under a white shirt to keep warm against the winter chill. Her olive green peacoat not only looked great against the jeans but also played up the bright colors in this Fashionista’s scarf. The scarf, although very spring-like, only brightened this Fashionista’s mega-watt smile even when the cold temperatures had her hands in her pockets. Lastly, her cool light purple Converse sneakers totally pulled together the comfortable yet classic look.

Fashion and style doesn’t always have to be considered as the most eye-catching look pre-shows at New York Fashion Week. Sometimes, fashion and style can be a color infused twist on a classic ensemble, like this Fashionista’s, or even pairing a pretty, tulle dress with your coolest sneakers.

Instead of stressing yourself out about an outfit on a relaxed Friday, reach for this classic denim, blouse and jacket combination and style it up with your favorite accessories. I guarantee you’ll be the most fashion-forward Fashionista/o on casual Friday!
