One of the biggest fashion faux pas students make on campus’ across the country is when they hide a trendy outfit with a frumpy, ill-fitted coat and shoes that do more for your bunions than your fashion sense. Making its first appearance in the 2000s, the every so popular UGG boot and North Face jacket combination has appeared in movies, on TV shows, and has even been spotted on celebrities in SoHo. While it has never been featured on the cover of Vogue, this fad has stayed popular as students have been going back to this effortless trend every leave-changing season. But while being comfortable and staying warm are two valid concerns, there are plenty of ways to do so while staying chic and classy.
I spotted this Fashionista making her way down Burlington, strutting her stuff in a pair of Miu Miu ombre faded booties. On the bottom she wore a pair of black straight-legged pants with a white tucked in blouse on top. Similar button-ups can be found at Aritzia as Macy's and H&M have similar yet way more affordable fall appropriate booties. Over her blouse, she layered with a chic black jacket that featured a feminine tie collar and topped off her outfit with an oversized Joie fur coat. While real fur is very expensive, it’s definitely worth the splurge and can be found at Bloomingdales who carry some of the best designers such as Marc Kaufman and Maximilian.
Keeping your body heat and skin on your feet is not always an easy task, especially when battling the gusty winds of the colder months, but with a chic jacket, wearable boots and plenty of layers, it can easily be done in the most elegant manner.
