More often than not, the first two weeks at school require minimal effort. We are given our syllabi, buy textbooks and get acquainted with campus. Our main focus, however, is reconnecting with old friends and continuing to make new ones. Students bounce around Oakland while fall comes into full swing. This week, slum it up with comfortable looks that keep you looking fabulous!
This Fashionista decided to dress up with a short black skirt while dressing it down with a skull muscle tank. The black skirt keeps the Fashionista looking classy. In contrast, knotting the cut-off creates an edge. To complete the look, she rocked a simple necklace with Steve Madden strap sandals and Ray-Ban aviators.
Since the Pittsburgh weather typically causes mass confusion, keep other styles in mind. On a cloudy day, for example, combat boots and an oversized sweater are the perfect comfort fix. For rainy days, invest in durable Hunter rain boots and a plaid button-up. Do you need to dress up? Throw on a pair of black sneaker wedges and a classic black blazer. Let me tell you, I bought my first pair of sneaker wedges about a year ago and find them to be useful in any given situation. The fashion industry is constantly changing, but it seems sneaker wedges may be here to stay.
As you mix and match to fit your personal style, do not forget about accessorizing! If you are going for an over-the-top graphic shirt, rings and bangles can even out the boldness. If the outfit is simple, add pop with chandelier earrings or a wrap-around bracelet. Depending on where you are headed, finalize the look with a chic canvas backpack or cross-body bag.
Adjusting back to school can be a difficult transition. If there is one thing that should be made easy, it is what you are wearing. The idea to keep in mind is comfort. Dressing trendy does not need to be a pain, so do not let it be!
