I don’t know about you, but personally, I struggle daily throughout the week of midterms. It’s difficult to shy away from the coziness of a large sweatshirt or sweatpants. Nonetheless, beyond study dates within the comforting walls of the university’s library, life goes on; your outfit must be prepared. This Fashionista’s look demonstrates the perfect balance of school ready-ness and after-school delight. Simultaneously accessorized and layered, comfort is ensured whether she’s curling up with a textbook in the lounge or having drinks with friends.
This Fashionista’s flair caught my attention from the flowing maxi skirt to her oversized knit. There’s something to be said about a relaxed look of a girl when she’s draped in clothing that makes her feel not only warm and cozy, but sexy without trying. Effortlessly, this Fashionista pairs her favorite sweater, leather moto-jacket, patterned snood and buckled booties with a ground skimming maxi skirt. She radiates femininity by incorporating a bright woven belt, adding a burst of color to an otherwise monochromatic look, and flattering her waistline at the same time.
Whether you have a hot date with your biology homework or movie plans with a pal, a maxi skirt delivers a perfect look whatever the occasion. To follow in the steps of this Fashionista, go for a fun print, like this Free People maxi, or even a chiffon maxi, and top it off with a cropped jean or leather jacket. It’s important to remember a thin belt when experimenting with the maxi trend, as it’s easy for your shape to be swallowed. Oh, and don’t forget to pack your vixen sunglasses; it’s sunny out there!
Spotted: Even the king of accessories himself favors Maxi-nista’s. Maxi skirts appeared on Louis Vuitton’s models during his ready-to-wear spring 2013 runway show.
