New year, new look! What is your style resolution for the new semester? Why not start by keeping warm in this chilling weather. After the frequent snowing season, the coldest time of the year is on the way. West Lafayette, Indiana, is experiencing around 20-degree temperature on average. Heavy coat-like pea coats and down jackets can be easily seen around campus. You may ask yourself, “How to stay warm, as well as be in Vogue?”
This Fashionista was caught on the way to class. Her faux fur leopard print coat grabbed my attention upon first glance. She chose this attractive coat with a classic black scarf, leggings, a pair of riding boots and a tote as her first school day look. Faux fur is a great choice for cold weather because it is cozy and warm. Faux fur can also add a different style to an ensemble. Leopard print can be adorable with a hooded faux fur coat, like the one worn by this Fashionista, or pom pom-adorned coat from ASOS. A creamy, chunky coat balances both masculine and feminine features. A funky chic Electric Berry-colored faux fur bomber, with striped contrasting lining, absolutely will make heads turn. You could even exchange your boring solids for a festive mixed-printed one for an updated look. Except for the coat, it is a good idea to keep all the other items in your ensemble black. One eye-catching piece is good enough to make your look stand out. Check out this basic winter leggings, which can be easily paired with any other winter gear. Get away from the dark, ordinary monochromatic shell, break up a neutral ensemble and brighten your day with a warm, brilliantly colored faux fur coat in this freezing weather!
ONE SIMPLE CHANGE: Her oversize tote is great for school days when she has to carry textbooks and binders. However, by substituting her tote for a crossbody bag or a clutch gives this Fashionista a look that is ready for shopping or a night out.
