With every semester at school, I am finding that my taste in clothes and accessories has steadily evolved. The summer ignited my love of chambray button-downs and denim on denim looks. This past fall, I discovered my new found interest in wearing primarily neutral and solid outfits. Bright lipstick and plaid have also made permanent appearances in my wardrobe over winter break. Now that I am opening my mind to all that beauty and fashion has to offer, I am having much more fun enhancing my everyday style.
As my style changes though, I realize that I have to make room for my new fashion finds. Cleaning out a closet, however, is much easier said than done. Every time I look at my unkempt wardrobe with the intent of weeding out unworn garments, I find pieces that I just haven’t had the chance to wear yet or that I have some emotional attachment to. I know that I am not alone in this dilemma. What we all need is Stacey and Clinton’s brutal honesty to help us come to terms with what we need and don’t need anymore.
With purging my closet on my list of New Year’s resolutions, I am looking forward to a semester of experimenting with fashion. Since I am going on co-op this semester as a merchandising intern for shoebuy.com, I will have a chance to put together a variety of fun business casual looks that are also suitable for Boston’s harsh winter. The days of dressing up yoga pants to justify wearing them is over. I now have a 9 to 5 job that requires looking stylish every day.
I’m not sure what my peers will be experimenting with this year, but I’m excited to play more with burgundy, monochromatic looks, bold accessories and my makeup routine. This semester, I am looking forward to making a return to writing for ACCESSORIES REPORT. I can only hope that my fellow Northeastern huskies continue to showcase their style and accessories under their layers of heavy coats!
