Here at Michigan State, spring semester has come and gone and summer semester has already started for those students staying on campus and taking classes. Now that the weather is beautiful (when it’s not raining like it has been all day today), it is the perfect time to chill on the quad between classes. I spotted this Fashionista and knew that she had the same idea.
This look is the perfect clash of two current trends—double denim and athletic shoes. Her dark jeans and light chambray shirt make the perfect pair, contrasting just enough so she doesn’t look like Britney and Justin circa 2001. This casual look also is versatile, with her layered V-neck T-shirt under her button-down. If the sun is a little stronger than expected or you just want to get some color, shed a layer and you’re still rocking the perfect look.
This Fashionista added a pop of color with her bright red Keds. I’ve been obsessed with any Keds-esque shoe lately and it’s easy to see why. They can quickly add a color or pattern to any outfit and look cute without wrecking your feet. From the highest of fashion to college campuses, sneakers are a hot shoe right now. Pairing a colored pair with this double denim look is a great way to transition from class, to kicking a soccer ball around on the quad or even slipping them off to lay out for a little.
Relaxed and light, this look is perfect for those early days of classes and still allows you to embrace the summer in summer semester.
One Simple Change: Cover up your swimsuit with a similar look by sporting denim shorts, leaving your button-down open and throwing on some pale pink espadrilles.
