Finally, it’s a gorgeous day on campus. The sun envelops the university with its warm, golden rays, the sky sports a light blue shade rather than its typical gray and students scatter themselves all over the grassy quad. When deciding what to wear on a day like this, take inspiration from CoverGirl’s moto: easy, breezy, beautiful.
This Fashionista rocks the all-American look with a chic twist. Nothing screams casual quite like a white top paired with classic denim—the combination exudes a laid back feeling. This Fashionista amps up the look with ripped skinny jeans and a feminine, white button-up tank. It’s her accessories, however, that take this outfit from ordinary to stylish.
From her printed headband down to her black Jack Rogers sandals, this Fashionista knows how to accessorize. Jack Rogers is a great go-to sandal because it helps polish any look, while still maintaining a sense of casualness. She takes inspiration from the ‘90s and includes a soft pink scrunchie on her wrist among delicate bracelets, creating a playful feel. Her mirrored amber sunglasses bring a warm hue to her look, and complement her Urban Outfitters shopping tote. Doubling a shopping tote as a bag works great for days on the quad as it allows you to bring a blanket to sit on. Finishing off the look with pastel nails, this Fashionista is ready for a day of socializing under the sun.
To emulate this look, start with the basics and focus on accessories. Choose a pair of light-wash denim jeans and pair it with a simple top. For a more playful take on her outfit, wear a graphic T-shirt or tank that expresses your style. Avoid wearing darker colors so you don’t get too hot, and avoid white pants (grass and dirt stains won’t really go with the outfit). Accessorize with a pair of shades to protect your eyes, and throw in an additional statement piece. It could be a printed headband like this Fashionista, or a graphic tote or bold jewelry. Apply some sunscreen and embrace the sunshine with your friends on the quad—so college.
One Simple Change: For a casual date night, swap the ripped jeans for a pair of dark-wash denim and replace the sandals for flats. Carry a cute clutch instead of a tote and your set for dinner, a movie or wherever your casual date takes you.
