Style Advice of the Week

We all have that point in the year when we are so overwhelmed with homework, exams, jobs and deadlines that our style goes completely out the window. During this time in the year I always find myself turning to my trusty pair of leggings. I mean, who has the time and effort for real pants these days anyway? But what people sometimes fail to realize is that leggings can be completely fashion-forward when styled correctly. Follow this stylish Fashionista’s example and you too can revamp your leggings look.

This week’s Fashionista wears a very unique pair of black leggings. The leather detailing makes the overall look of these leggings a lot more chic, which is perfect for a day when you want to look put together but still be comfortable. This Fashionista also wears a plain, white long sleeve top with an adorable denim vest on top, adding interest and layers to the outfit. She accessorizes with a mossy green scarf and a plum red leather purse, which brighten up her look by adding some color. To finish her look off she wears some gorgeous gold jewelry and taupe colored leather boots with gold accents.

To achieve this Fashionista’s look find yourself a pair of unique leggings. Leggings with leather panels are great because they are extremely versatile—you can wear them to class or a night out. They are still very comfortable, which is perfect for those lazy days during the spring semester. Swap out your oversized hoodie for a denim vest; this is a very easy way to add some texture and fun to your outfit, and makes the overall look a lot more interesting as it layers up your ensemble. Before dashing out the door, throw on some accessories! A circle scarf will keep you cozy  in the cold weather while spicing up your look, especially if you add a pop of color to an otherwise very neutral outfit.

I am a firm believer that you do not have to sacrifice comfort in order to be stylish, and this week’s Fashionista is proof. This adorable look could be recreated even on the busiest day of the week, plus it shows you don’t have to give up wearing leggings to look put together. Leggings are a staple piece in any girl’s wardrobe and when styled correctly, wearing leggings as pants can actually be utterly chic.
