Style Advice of the Week

Unfortunately it’s official; New York Fashion Week is over. Yet the excitement over fashion week did not cease to reach me despite the fact that I do not live in New York City. It must be the fact that I love this season. I love watching the shows live online, catching up on reviews and tracking instant news on twitter (yes I am very guilty of retweeting the buzz that follows). But the fun and fashion hasn’t stopped yet, as London Fashion Week follows.

Tote bags were rare and unique aspects on the catwalk. They were an incorporated piece as seen in Eudon Choi fall 2014 ready-to-wear collection and DAKS fall 2014 ready-to-wear collection during the fall 2014 London Fashion Week. Perhaps this makes the tote bag a fashion statement. After all, on a campus where backpacks are simply an element to a student’s ensemble, a tote bag stands out. For instance, this week’s Fashionista shows that with a tote bag one can look studious and stylish

Nevertheless, this Fashionista’s tote bag is not the only fashionable element to her look. She sports a parka coat paired with black leather boots. Add the Michael Kors tote alongside these items and you have a fashionable and trendy look. Michael Kors is famous for his American sportswear style; aspects of this Fashionista’s look only help reinforce her accessory’s strong aesthetic. The parka is bona fide college campus fad and the leather riding boot is a shoe that is truly in style this winter season.

Parkas and leather boots are big fashion trends. But adding a tote bag in the mix creates a fashion statement, just like this Fashionista’s fashionable and trendsetting look.
