The quad is one of my favorite places to hang out on campus. I love to sit on one of the many benches and people watch. There are so many unique and well-dressed students on campus that I love getting style inspiration from. For instance, this Fashionista’s outfit is great because she takes classic pieces and pairs them in a modern and trendy way.
This Fashionistas outfit is very reminiscent of Alexa Chung, and I love that she has paired a worn-in flannel with a high-waisted black skirt. Both are such classic pieces, and, in my opinion, vital to any wardrobe. I say this because they can be worn differently, yet look amazing when paired together as well! Her black booties are great because they give a little extra height, yet are also comfortable enough for a long day of walking around campus.
Flannels are yet another great and classic piece for any wardrobe. They only get better with age, and add a little edge to any outfit. You can either hit up your local thrift shop for an already worn in flannel, or you can try this one from Urban Outfitters. A little black skirt is just as important to have as a little black dress, and this one from Zara fits the bill perfectly. As far as booties go, this pair from Dolce Vita are a great choice.
One Simple Change: To take this look from the quad to your internship — swap the backpack for a large leather tote, and the booties for some black flats.
