With holiday break coming to an unfortunate end, I can’t help but address the elephant in the room. I beg the question of whether I will have more difficulty sitting in the classroom again, or will squeezing into jeans with my newly acquired holiday love handles be the biggest struggle of 2014? Regardless of which reigns supreme in this matter (for the sake of my delightful denims, let’s go with the former), I will eventually have to face both. Thanks to this week’s Fashionista, I know my classroom aversion can be put to ease by a greater good: a killer outfit.
Nothing says ‘cute but casual’ quite like a destroyed boyfriend jean paired with a tucked-in sweater, am I right? This Fashionista nails it, accentuating her gray knit sweater with an embellished Peter Pan collar. This outfit is effortlessly put together and polished; a true testament to stylin’ students. Thrown together with eccentric oxfords and cuffed pants, this Fashionista creates a rustic vibe with a feminine feel.
Now that you’re all hanging at the edge of your seats in anticipation of heading to class in dashing garbs, I’ll have you know this look is easy to replicate. Find your favorite worn (and hopefully not torn from the holidays…hypothetically speaking, of course) jeans, lace-up an eye-catching bootie and throw on your comfiest sweater. Do a little cuffing here and tucking-in there, and you’ll be killin’ it on campus!
One Simple Change: To jazz this ensemble up a bit, swap out the oxfords for a heeled bootie, strut your stuff out of the classroom and on to a Girl’s Night Out!
