Amid seeing the sights in London, spending my weekends traveling across Europe and meeting my new flatmates, my mind tends to slip from the real reason I’m here in England: school. Monday comes and I snap back to reality and get myself ready for class. Getting dressed for class leaves an open space for creativity — you want to stand out and show your style, all while looking cute and feeling comfortable. This Fashionista nailed the perfect look for school, looking stylish and ready to take on the day.
Her fabric scarf immediately stands out and makes her outfit memorable. The red is rich and warm and the intricate design draws your eye in. It definitely brightens up her neutral outfit and could be worn in winter or spring. Besides being functional, it gives her outfit a cozy vibe, which is especially great in the colder months or in chilly classrooms. Mixing patterns can often be tricky, but the eye-catching color of the scarf mixed with the simplicity of the stripes in the shirt looks easy going and fashion forward.
I also loved how she mixes colors in similar palettes. The army green pants matched with a cuff-sleeve navy blue blazer and striped shirt make her outfit look cool and casual. A soft pair of trousers, in a variety of colors, looks put together and is comfortable for sitting through long classes. The blazer takes the outfit up a notch — it adds an air of professionalism and the navy color is super trendy. The worn brown combat boots give the otherwise preppy outfit a tough edge. They are the perfect shoes for virtually every outfit, from jeans to skater dresses. With intricate details and patterns in the outfit, few accessories are needed. A simple band watch and small earrings do not take away from the outfit and won’t be distracting in class. All this Fashionista needs is a cute tote bag for her books and she receives an A+ in style.
One Simple Change: The striped sweater can be worn with a knee-length A-line skirt to make a sweet and fun outfit perfect for heading to work after class.
