As we head into the New Year and back to campus, some of us have been dealt with early classes this semester. Early morning classes don’t have to mean sweatpants and hoodies. Stay on top of your day and brighten up your mornings by switching up your black basics with your favorite color for a no fuss look. If you’ve missed the three or four alarms you’ve set for your early class and have a long day ahead fear not. Take a cue from this Fashionista’s unique outfit and be out the door in no time.
When I saw this Fashionista, I was instantly drawn to her outfit’s bright colors. She steps away from the typical black on black ensemble preferred during the wintertime, all while staying warm. This look is both comfortable and presentable in case you need to meet with your professor or head to the café with your crush.
Layering is a skill in the winter. This Fashionista nails it by layering basics to achieve a multicolored look. Layer a simple dress with some teal tights or leggings to break up your look. Add some short socks of a contrasting color to add extra warmth with your favorite lace up booties. To finish off the look, put on a winter peacoat, printed scarf and hat to keep you warm. Throw your essentials for the day in a printed tote and you’re out the door.
The great thing about basics is you can find the right one for you, like this Fashionista’s scarf and tote from a vintage store. These unique elements make the look. Basics also give you tons of outfits without breaking the bank.
One Simple Change: Go forth and add some color into your winter wardrobe and use your basics to create your one of a kind, quick look for your early morning classes. If teal is not your color, play around with different shades to get the same effect. If you have no time before meeting your friends for dinner, just switch your tote for a cross-body bag.
