Style Advice of the Week

Flipping through the pages of any fashion magazine or online style site is always so exciting this time of year. Everyday designers and style bloggers are releasing their findings on what trends this season are hot, and which are not.

Here at Penn State we are still having trouble comprehending what season we’re in. One moment it’s hot and sunny, and the next it’s back to the cold snow! It’s an important time to download any, and/ or every, weather app so we can be prepared for the most important part of each day– picking out an outfit for class.

Graphic prints surround us in our daily lives. We can find them in modern art, printed on food packages, and most notably, on our favorite T-shirts. This Fashionista I found really caught my eye today with her graphic print. She is wearing a lightweight long sleeve shirt, which was perfect for the mild weather we are experiencing. What I really love about her sweatshirt is the fact that it’s not so simple. It has the really cool gold graphic taking over the entire front, but if you look more closely, you will find that it has a crisscross stitching going over it as well. The subtle black lines add more detail to the top and give it some extra edge.

As far as jeans go, I love how she decided to wear a pair of dark skinny denim. Having the dark shades on her arms, legs and shoes allow for the gold to really pop and let her printed top make a statement of its own. This Fashionista chose to wear a pair of black leather oxfords, which are very chic. They are a great shoe for spring and go great with pants, shorts or crops.

They say diamonds are a girls best friend, but what about gold? This Fashionista definitely knows how to rock the perfect set of jewels with her outfit. On one hand we see a gold double finger ring, and on the other we find a gold and black leather cuff.  Around her neck is a long gold pendant, which goes nicely with the rest of her outfit.

If you really think about it, the weather drives each and every outfit we wear. So although it has this strange power to decide whether we put on a coat or not, it’s always important to remember that you’re the boss in deciding what’s underneath. Layer on accessories, prints or anything bold and look like this Fashionista in her fabulous black and gold!
