WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

What to Wear

Winter break is over and it’s time to get back into the swing of things on campus. Sadly, spending all day in bed watching Netflix is no longer an option. Classes have begun and by the time Thursday rolls around, I know we are all more than ready for the break that the weekend brings.

What could be better for the weekend than an LBD? Karl Lagerfeld once said, “One is never over- or under-dressed with a little black dress.” He is absolutely right! The best part about a black dress is its versatility. I see it as sort of a blank canvas that can be taken in many different directions. No matter what the occasion, an LBD is a great item to have in your closet.

This Fashionista adds her own flair to the classic staple item by showing off a casual yet, edgy style. Throwing on an oversized cardigan is not only a great way to dress down an outfit but it is also a way to stay warm on a cold winter Saturday. Yes, even though Columbia, SC, is known as the “Famously Hot City” it can still get pretty chilly.

My personal favorite part about this Fashionista’s attire is the subtle edginess she added to it. We all want to bring out our rock star side for at least a day! A spiked statement necklace and studded combat boots, which are comfortable and fashionable, (I know, it’s shocking!) makes the outfit interesting without becoming overbearing. It’s all about balance. Whether she’s shopping, having lunch with friends or going to the movies, this Fashionista is clearly dressed for anything that the weekend has in store.

ONE SIMPLE CHANGE: Her combat boots and cardigan make this outfit perfect for a casual Saturday. Swap the items for a blazer and a pair of studded heels to transform this outfit into evening wear.
