It looks like it’s finally time to say goodbye to the summer sun. We were lucky in Melbourne to have an extra month of warmth, but there’s no denying now that a chill has hit the air, bringing back tights and scarves to our day-to-day outfits.
On a chilly day of classes, I want nothing better than a comfy oversized knit sweater to keep me warm, just like this Fashionista’s sweater. However, she didn’t let the baggy piece swamp her frame because she rolled up the sleeves to keep the look streamlined. It’s a good tip for op-shopping Fashionistas who love a good vintage buy, but are unsure how to style a top that is a couple of sizes too big. Even though her necklace is simple, its length and small details stood out against her block-colour jumper.
On an average day of classes, you can expect to be going from lecture hall to the classroom to a café to the tram–your day can often be full of sporadic plans. I suggest wearing layers in the colder months, like this Fashionista. A great way to make sure you don’t overheat or catch a cold is having the ability to take off a jumper as you head inside, and to pop it back on as you finish class. I loved that this Fashionista layered her’s with a printed dress underneath, which meant that her outfit had two looks collaborating for a fashionably versatile ensemble.
In classrooms, more often than not, the air conditioning is on full blast. Thus, it was a smart move for this Fashionista to choose a pair of tights. Plus, with winter coming up, a pair of tights is a great way to mix up your classroom look if you choose a coloured or patterned pair.
Her distressed leather bag was perfect for carrying around all of her university supplies. It was a good size for fitting a laptop and books. She finished off her class outfit with a gorgeous pair of super shiny leather loafers. They reminded me of the pair I used to wear as a part of my school uniform, but her’s was one-thousand-times more chic!
