STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Finding the Balance


This week's Fashionisto radiates cool with an outfit that matches this week’s weather – hot, hot, hot! 

A smart coat layered over a loose cream shirt, put with blue skinny jeans and brown Chelsea boots looks amazing and really highlights why Kingston University is part of CollegeFashionista. This cool but casual look is definitely one to be emulated and can quite easily be done on a student budget. Mixing and matching smart items with more informal pieces can create an interesting mixture and a brilliant outfit.

Take the shirt for example; a white shirt is usually a pretty standard element to the everyday work uniform which could even be described as bland; however, by wearing a shirt that is less tailored and more relaxed in structure, it can turn this boring staple into a great every day piece. Get a similar shirt to this weeks Fashionisto from places such as All Saints, but remember to undo the top buttons to avoid looking too prim and proper. ASOS also have some great shirts which could help you rock the look such as this mini collared one, and this cowl neck one, which also would really work well.

Adding accessories only adds to this gorgeous relaxed, but smart vibe. Not forgetting the much needed accessory, it has to be noted that you will definitely need a necklace as the icing on the cake. Topman is normally a safe shout for all your jewellery needs and has some great examples to go with this outfit including this two-row charm necklace, and this one with a cluster of feathers on.

Hint: Don’t overdo it. Make sure you get the balance right as this week's Fashionisto does by matching this sharp coat with a laid back beanie hat.
