What to Wear

After months of stressing, crying, staying up all night and contemplating the meaning of life you can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Those few days away from campus for Thanksgiving break were a tease for the end of the semester. In the midst of finals the only other thought circling everyone’s mind is the holiday season. Aside from unwrapping presents, there will be lots of family dinners or nights out to worry about. To achieve a look that’s post holiday ready but still has elements of your own style, take some time to study today’s Fashionista.

The essential aspect of this Fashionista’s outfit is her jacket. All you need to keep the holiday season look alive is to have these two elements incorporated into your personal style. Ironically tribal print was everything you probably hated as child. While opening your gift from grandma you pull out a weird patterned sweater that you would come to bury within the depths of your closet. Well it’s time to dig those sweaters and cardigans out because the tribal print will be essential to masking your personal look with something that is a bit more festive. She pairs her cardigan with a denim shirt for both added warmth and a more bohemian look.

Chances are you will be hopping from house to house to visit relatives that want to pinch your cheeks and tell you how big you’ve gotten. With these visits comes food and more food. For the most comfort during the holidays, leggings are the best choice. To keep the style you would normally be seen in around campus, pair your leggings with any shirt that would best represent the look you would be going for. This Fashionista wears an oversized shirt that matches the grunge and almost gothic look she’d like to retain.

In terms of accessories you want to keep the pieces on that best represent you. Today’s Fashionista carries her Nine West two toned bag and Michael Kors watch on her wrists. On her feet she wears ankle boots with a unique twist. This is bound to give relatives an idea of what gifts would best suit you to avoid any more back-of-the-closet bound items. It also balances out her look to create the beautiful image of college student and adult.

One Simple Change: To swing the look completely into a more bohemian vibe consider brown calf boots instead with your choice of shirt.
