With Thanksgiving fast approaching and final exams creeping up, we’re in that final stretch of the fall semester. Each student has their own method for preparing for exams and more often than not this means meandering around campus in what they may or may not have slept in while clenching their seventh cup of coffee for the day.
Studying doesn’t have to be code for sweatpants though. This Fashionista shows that you can stay toasty and comfortable without having to break out your sweats. Giving a nod to the military-inspired trend, she sports a utility jacket and combat boots. This jacket is the perfect layering piece for your cold weather wardrobe and combat boots are a more attractive alternative to a pair of UGGs.
These army parkas can be found at places like Urban Outfitters and Topshop this season in an assortment of different neutral colors. You may opt for the classic olive green, khaki or gray. Or take my usual advice and wander through local thrift stores to score a one-of-a-kind piece for half the price. Add some cozy socks and combat boots to keep your feet warm and bundle up with a chunky infinity scarf if you want the effortless layered look that this Fashionista achieves.
Don’t let your style decline as the temperature does. Bundle up this winter with layers, instead of sweats, for a look that emulates style and comfort in a laid-back approach.
