WHAT TO WEAR: Early Class

What to Wear

Winter is having its final laugh, meaning that the cold spell is still around. This makes it extra frustrating for students who have classes that start early in the morning. With the temperature being even colder in the mornings, having to bundle up every day can seem like a chore. In order to bring a bit more brightness to early classes, pick a couple of standout pieces and make them signature items.

There is nothing quite like being woken up by a bright color and this week’s Fashionista seems to know all about it. She sports a poppy red parka that not only keeps her warm, but also gets her through the early hours. The other standout piece in her look is a cross-body with a studded flap. The purse is a no-brainer for holding essentials, and the golden embellishment adds pizzazz. She cleverly keeps the rest of our outfit casual with a pair of leggings, a hoodie and some important cold weather accessories. Her lace-up boots wrap up the look.

Clearly, this Fashionista’s look ranks higher in style than the typical uniform of sweats that is so tempting to wear in the morning. Interestingly enough, her outfit contains super casual elements that are silenced by the incredible red of the parka. Look to this week’s Fashionista for inspiration when heading to an early class. Do not be afraid to wear a university sweatshirt; just make sure to downplay it with a striking signature piece. If red is a bit too harsh, go for a subtle print instead. Or if the brightness is not enough, feel free to opt for a sunny yellow jacket.

Before heading out, make sure to prepare for the weather with appropriate accessories. As a final touch, add one last standout item to the look. This could be in the form of anything from a unique lip color to a quirky purse. Get ready to face the early mornings with comfort and confidence.

One Simple Change: Switch out the heavy parka for a lighter raincoat when the skies decide to burst open. After all, spring showers are just around the corner!
