College students are always on the go. Between classes, jobs and hanging out with friends, a college coed needs to make the most out of what little free time they have. Running errands may not be the most enjoyable activity; however, a playful outfit can instantly boost your mood while running around town. I loved this Fashionista’s vibrant take on a casual ensemble. She proves that you can dress down and look incredibly fashion forward at the same time.
The key to the ideal ensemble for an afternoon of running errands? Layers, layers and more layers! If it gets warmer during the day, you can always stash any unneeded pieces in the trunk of your car. The puffy vest has been a major trend on campus this season; however, the way this Fashionista styles hers is one of a kind. She layered a simple white T-shirt and a jacket underneath of her vivid vest for an extra layer of style and warmth.
Rather than pairing the vest with jeans or leggings, this Fashionista opted for a chic brown miniskirt. This skirt paired with a showstopping pair of mustard yellow tights gave this ensemble a funky, downtown edge.
You’ll want to be comfortable while running errands, so leave the heels at home and opt for a pair of cozy, flat shoes. This Fashionista’s rugged pair of Dr. Martens toughened up this otherwise sweet look.
One Simple Change: Show off your school spirit by swapping the vest and jacket out for a black VCU T-shirt. That look would be a fun, unexpected way to show off your VCU pride!
