The first week of the semester is always incredibly hectic. Running around finding classrooms, advising visits and multiple trips to the bookstore are sure to keep any Fashionista/o on their toes. A return back to campus also means catching up with the friends after classes, work and errands come to a close. With the many hours we’re spending prepping for the perfect semester, it can get tricky to squeeze in an additional outfit change. Every Fashionista/o needs the perfect day to night ensemble to get them through those chaotic days in style.
This Fashionista illustrates a sleek, sophisticated look that transitions from a busy day of numerous obligations to a night out on the town. She stood out with her jewel tone pleated midi skirt. Instead of a miniskirt, opt for a skirt that hits mid shin for the most flattering fit.
Take a cue from this Fashionista and pair the midi skirt with a classic black and white striped shirt. This timeless piece will dress down the skirt to be more appropriate for the daytime. Add a bit of edge with your trusty, go-to leather jacket. If it becomes too warm during a long day of appointments, you have the option to remove the jacket.
Finish off the look with a pair of ankle booties and an oversized clutch. Choose a bootie with a heel low enough so you’ll be comfortable running around all day and dancing all night. Be sure to pick a clutch with enough space to hold all the essentials you’ll need for a long day.
ONE SIMPLE CHANGE: For the tomboys on campus, swap out the midi skirt for a super skinny pair of jewel tone denim. You’ll still look sophisticated while remaining true to your own personal style.
