As an college student can attest, it is important to really maximize your wardrobe. Between a tight budget and even tighter living quarters, making the most of your clothes is key. That is why I love the concept of a look that can take you day to night. It makes the most of your clothes while also taking into account your busy schedule.
This Fashionisto’s outfit is the perfect example of the ideal day to night look. Let’s dissect this look from the bottom up, shall we?
The work boot is a great universal pair of footwear. These shoes are durable and comfortable; making your long days of class, study groups and errands a little more manageable. The rugged look also translates to night. It is all about the styling.
Which leads me to my next point: the perfect pant. A pair of colored, tailored chinos are universally chic and can work in just about any situation. The clean lines and lean silhouette are polished for a meeting with a professor. The pop of color also makes them great for a date with your lady friend.
Another transitional piece is the V-neck sweater. Every Fashionisto should own at least one great V-neck sweater. As illustrated by this Fashionisto, they can take you everywhere and anywhere. Personally, I am partial to the classic V-neck sweaters from Gap. They are super comfy and thin enough to layer. Pick a color, as they look great from day to night.
One Simple Change: Switch out the boots for a pair of leather loafers for a look that is perfect for an interview.
