It is often hard for college students to find ways to look good and make a statement all while keeping it simple. I often see people on campus that look like they are trying too hard to look different by wearing too many trends at once. I think these students actually fail to make fashion statements and end up looking more like train wrecks than true Fashionistas. Coco Chanel once said, “Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance,” and I couldn’t agree more! When it comes to getting ready in the morning to go to class, keeping it simple is the most practical thing to do. Probably the best way to achieve that is going back to basics and adding interesting touches to avoid looking boring.
This Fashionista demonstrates an excellent way to keep it simple while impressive and dashing. She took a basic black shirt and paired it with a pair of loose-fit printed harem pants. As far as the dashing touches go, she chose to make the accessories the elements that would bring life to the entire ensemble. She chose golden woven ballet flats and a simple clutch as the touches of color in her outfit that would make her simple and elegant choices pop. It is important to note that the key to this outfit was how she chose simplicity to stand out over the golden statement pieces in the outfit.
Remember that in most cases less is more. Keeping it simple doesn’t have to mean boring as long as small dashing touches are added to the mix.
