What is your go-to outfit? You know, that simple combination that never fails you on those days when you scramble for what to wear. As the school year comes to an end, it is easy to forget about fashion. In the midst of finals, moving and preparing for our summer adventures, what to wear is often the last thing on our minds. That’s why a time-tested uniform can sometimes be our best friend and ally. As Bill Cunningham famously said, “Fashion is the armor to survive everyday life.” Today’s Fashionista exemplifies this fact.
With a foundation of all black, this Fashionista creates a slimming and versatile silhouette. I find that black is the best option when your clothes need to carry you through long days. When you have a chemistry final on your mind, the last thing that you need to think about is spilling coffee on a white shirt. She pairs her black foundation with a distinctive army green cargo jacket. This piece provides a nice contrast while adding just the right amount of color. What truly makes this outfit special are her accessories. Take a look at her spiked side bag and ankle boots. This edgy hardware adds a bit of glam, making her ensemble more interesting than any basic uniform. This uniform has subtle style.
Find a uniform that works for you. Don’t know where to start? Basic black pants and a slouchy T-shirt, like today’s Fashionista is wearing, are a great place to start. Another staple to incorporate is an army or motorcycle jacket with many pockets for storage. Think of your accessories as the frosting. A bright bag or embellished flats sweeten the deal. These wardrobe essentials will fill out your closet and take you through the end of the school year in style.
