Style Advice of the Week

As we get even later into December and finals are lurking just around the corner, it can be hard to think about anything besides how much studying you have to do. I know I’m lucky if I even have time to wash my hair between review sessions and late nights at the library. I’ve recently been finding alternatives to a messy bun, and this Fashionista demonstrates one of my favorite looks. The top knot is an easy and quick way to hide dirty hair but still looks sleek and feminine.

This Fashionista goes for a polished look with a ballerina bun and a chic black wool coat with gold buttons. Her cat eye sunglasses and colorful scarf pull together the ultra feminine look. My favorite part about this Fashionista’s ensemble is the way she wears dark black denim jeans and black motorcycle boots with studs to juxtapose the girly elements. Combining parts of different looks like this is a great way to make your outfit stand out.

This Fashionista’s outfit is so simple and easy to recreate that it would be the perfect choice for when you are pressed for time. Simply throw on your favorite pair of jeans and go for a nice wool coat instead of you oversized puffer jacket. Add some leather boots with a little edge and pull your hair back into a simple bun. The great thing about a top knot is that it is easy to do when you’re in a hurry, but still looks professional and put together in any setting.
