Style Advice of the Week

With the exam season rolling around, the only possible way to dress like your campus is a runway is if the runways are now showcasing an array of sweats. A student must always make the decision as to whether to dress for comfort or for style when spending the day at the library. This Fashionista’s gray and black ensemble is sure to zip up the conversations discussing if style should be a must during study days. This Fashionista’s outfit is able to defy any notions that style and comfort are mutually exclusive.

This Fashionista was able to change conversations and study attire perceptions through her combination of a black wool coat, gray sweater, black jeans and black combat boots. Her outfit’s colour scheme and coat were able to bring a contemporary runway feel to her study outfit. Her coat was not a typical peacoat. It used a zipper to close up the coat instead of the usual double line of buttons. Not only was the zipper used to close up the wool coat but many more zipper’s provided for extra decoration and detail on the coat. The zippers contribution to the coat provided for an added urban feel to this Fashionista’s outfit.

So many coats on the market are also able to provide the same feel through its similar use of zippers. This coat by McQ Alexander McQueen makes definition through its cinched waist and flared bottom shape. This MICHEAL Michael Kors coat has a traditional straight zip combined with a touch of leather on its sleeves. This rag & bone coat provides a punch of colour along with a motorcycle jacket design. This goes to show that the coat is key and a nontraditional zipper is the lock to keeping stylish while hibernating under your books.
