STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Topping it Off with the Top Knot

Style Advice of the Week

On any given morning during the week, I can pretty much guarantee what scenario is going to play out. I plan out my morning perfectly so that I will have just enough time to go for a run, eat breakfast and get myself ready and looking pulled together for class. Then my alarm goes off, and of course, I hit snooze until it is absolutely a necessity that I get out of bed. I go for a run, shove breakfast down and leave the house with wet hair that keeps getting tangled up in my bag. By the time I get to class, I usually end up looking like a wet dog.

So, I always fall back on the top knot. It’s a true lifesaver. This Fashionista caught my eye on her way to class rocking a casual but cute outfit that was perfectly topped off with the top knot— every true CollegeFashionista’s go-to for days when there’s not enough time to do your hair.

So what exactly are the best outfits to wear with the top knot? For a cute and easy look for class, pair it up with your favorite maxi dress and a jean jacket. To transform your usual going out look into something a little more edgy, like these fabulous leggings from TopShop and silk shirt from Madewell. In both cases, your top knot will keep you looking sophisticated with a bit of an edge and will always save you from those bad hair days that we all seem to encounter every once in a while.
