WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

What to Wear

As soon as Friday classes finish, an upbeat spirit echoes throughout campus. After a period of nonstop routine, weekends are crucial to the college student’s sanity. They’re usually spent hanging out with friends, seeing a movie, grabbing frozen yogurt or exploring the unknown realms of downtown. Whatever the activity, weekend wear can go two ways. While the relaxed bunch opts for sweats and a hoodie to lounge around, the other half mirrors their brighter moods with more creative ensembles.

I caught this Fashionista in her original outfit as she was about to leave for lunch. Pairing a graphic T-shirt with this chiffon skirt, she balances casual and chic. Her over-the-knee socks are a quintessential weekend trend. They go best with flouncy dresses and high-waisted shorts, items otherwise too formal for class. Worn under combat boots, the look is girly meets edgy, finished with her jagged geometric necklace for a bold touch.

ONE SIMPLE CHANGE: Planning to wear this outfit into the night? Switch the combat boots for some Mary Jane wedged heels. They offer a perfect boost and flatter the billowy skirt. Instead of a heavy-knit cardigan, try a cropped leather jacket or sleek white blazer for a transformed vibe. With darker eye makeup and a deep red lip, you’re revamped for any nighttime occasion.
