STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Dress Up While Dressing Down

Style Advice of the Week

Have you ever felt like you wanted to just stay in your pajamas all day, but you know you owe it to yourself to take more pride in your appearance than sweats? Any Fashionista knows there’s a way to stay comfy and relaxed while still appearing stylish and collected. Dressing down while dressing up is always the way to go!

I ran into this week’s Fashionista while on her way to class. By pairing a cozy sweater with some jeans, she’s sure to sit through her long lectures without feeling buttoned or laced up to the point of discomfort. However, this post isn’t only about comfort; personal flair injects into her outfit through her bold choices of bright high-tops, a cute collar necklace and an oversized animal print coat! Through her unique choices, this week’s Fashionista is sure to turn heads without having to painfully prance on sky-high heels or squirm throughout class in something itchy or hot.

You can be as relaxed and chic as this Fashionista with a few simple items! A snug sweater or knit top over a blouse is an easy way to pull yourself together without something structured or confining. A bold print is sure to punch up your appearance, like in this coat. Finally, flats are always an option, and when done right, sneakers don’t always have to look super casual. A funky studded pair can add some pizzazz to your feet in a snap!

Rolling out of bed in the morning can be tough. Remember though, you never know who you might run into! Think of how you can stay relaxed without having to sacrifice your style!
