Ah, friends. Even though required reading and 10 page essays have entered our lives once again, we can always find some time to hang out with our closest and dearest. It’s almost impossible to survive college without them, really (I wouldn’t have lasted a mere week). Friends can also be a major factor in shaping our personal styles; their opinions, advice and their own sense of style affect how and what we choose to wear. Our stylish peeps inspire us to dress up and bring our sartorial game on, even for a simple weekend outing. Still, when having fun and relaxing with friends, it’s never nice to look overdressed. An easy, yet fashionable look is key, and it’s clear that this Fashionista knows how it’s done.
Her outfit brings together high fashion prints with comfortable fabrics for an effortlessly chic high-low combination. The sweatshirt, a purchase from her native Korea, has intricate prints in an eye-popping turquoise color, which perfectly complements the gray foreground. Printed or bejeweled sweatshirts, found everywhere from Zara to Givenchy, is the exquisite mix of luxury and comfort. It’s an item that’s as easy to wear as it is to pair something with. This Fashionista has paired hers with a ruched jersey mini-skirt, which gives the outfit a girly touch without taking away from the casual comfort. Her combat boots exude a cool, downtown vibe and her yellow smartphone makes for a pretty sight paired with bright pink fingernails. Whether you’re out for a stroll with friends or going to an outdoor market together, this nonchalant, fashionable outfit will be a winner.
One Simple Change: For an edgier look that’s also easier to prance around in, swap the skirt for a pair of shiny leather shorts. You can also opt for high-top sneakers and, if you want to go all out, a baseball cap to channel a Rihanna-like downtown vibe.
