Back-to-school season is in full swing, Fashionistas/os. And while heading back to campus means a new class schedule, the first few weeks are filled with more then just lectures and labs. When you get back on campus, there are meetings, parties, errands, catching up with friends over brunch and so much more that gets crammed into a single day. That is why you need an outfit that lets you look your best throughout the busy day and into the night.
This Fashionista’s look is a spot-on look that can take you from day to night. The key to any great day to night look is separates. By opting for an outfit comprised of several different garments, you can mix, match and layer throughout the course of the day to continuously keep your look fresh and occasion appropriate.
I love this Fashionista’s maxi skirt. The gray color is a more casual option then the traditional black; perfect for gossiping with friends over lunch or picking up last minute supplies and bedding while running errands. On the other hand, the high slit makes the maxi skirt seem both light and subtly sexy, which will be perfect for catching the eye of your crush after a long summer away. Day or night, you want to look your best. The high-waist is beyond flattering, hitting the Fashionista is the narrowest part of her figure.
Another great item for day to night is the cross-body bag. Not only is this style bag super trendy right now, it is also really practical. When heading to the book store to pick up your load of textbooks, simply cross the strap over your chest for a hands free, low maintenance look. Then, when you head out to the bars or fraternities with your roommates, you can rest the strap over your shoulder for an evening look. Many cross-body bags also have the ability to covert into a clutch, which is a perfect option for a nighttime look.
As you look at your busy back-to-school schedule, don’t stress about what to wear all day. Take a cue from this Fashionista and find a look that can take your from day to night and everywhere in between.
One Simple Change: This Fashionista’s ’90s inspired crop top is the perfect option for just about any occasion, except maybe for class. If you are heading to class, switch out the crop top for a sweater for a more conservative look that your professor will appreciate.
