School is back in session which can only mean one thing: the loungewear that passed as clothing during winter break goes back into the drawers. Out come the fashionable duds that will help you stand out in the sea of your peers back on campus. However, you don’t have to put all these comfy basics back into storage! By pairing your homebody staples with more tailored pieces, you can master this put together look without sacrificing comfort.
This Fashionista will be a second semester senior and has begun the process of meshing her college wardrobe with clothes that she will be able to wear in the “real world”. A blazer is a more professional option to a cardigan or a denim jacket and is a versatile piece that every girl should have in her wardrobe. Paired with a pencil skirt and a button-down shirt, a blazer is appropriate for the workplace. Paired with a cute top and leggings or a dress, a blazer gives a casual look a polished finish. Her accessories show the same versatility, opting for simple tortoiseshell glasses and the ever-classic silver Michael Kors watch. Her studded smoking loafers are a reminder that you can look professional without losing personality. Test-drive your interview demeanor and business casual wardrobe during a meeting with your professor. This Fashionista has chosen a smart ensemble that is sure to impress yet will keep her comfortable throughout the day with leggings.
One Simple Change: Swap the silky top for a fun graphic T-shirt or a flannel accessorized with a statement necklace and you have a put-together yet trendy outfit that would be perfect for a concert or a night out with friends.
