Style Advice of the Week

Suddenly, it’s the last week of the semester. It’s absolutely crazy to think that three exams stand between me and an incredible summer. Summer is so close that I can taste it! But first we have to conquer our finals, and I have to admit that while head-to-toe sweats seem tempting (like your whole body is basically a blanket of comfort), I still choose to opt for that whole “look good, feel good” mentality.

During finals there is a difference between being comfortable and looking like you haven’t seen daylight in a week. And even if you haven’t (seen daylight that is) you should do your very best to make it seem as though you’re completely functional. This Fashionista definitely knows how to be presentable without being too fancy. Let’s start with her clothes. She’s rocking a white T-shirt and leggings, but what makes the top really stand out is the jeweled detailing. Her decorative top goes beyond a T-shirt and makes her stand out amongst a sea of plain white T-shirts. She lets the top shine and keeps the bottom very simple with cropped black leggings.

The cropped legging gives a chance for the second sparkly element to shine. Her adorable emerald green flats are decorated with a jeweled owl! Not only does this tie in well with her shirt, but it adds some color to the outfit without appearing to be too overwhelming. I’m also loving the bag because it is the perfect size to throw in a few essentials: cell phone, wallet, lipstick, keys, etc. Lastly, remember this style of sunglasses, because I have a feeling this silhouette is going to be everywhere this summer!

When in doubt, keep the pieces simple, but look out for those special details! They can add some serious sparkle to an outfit. Thank you for spending the semester with me as I attempted to dish out my very best STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK. I had a fantastic semester with CollegeFashionista and enjoyed meeting some new faces and collecting a taste profile together for the Barnard/Columbia campuses. Here’s to a summer of fun, festivals, frolicking and of course, lots and lots of fabulous fashion.
