ALL IN THE DETAILS: Classic Cool

It’s always a good idea to have those go-to outfits that can be worn endless times. They come in handy when you can’t decide on what to wear or overslept and only have 10 minutes to look put together; I call them backup outfits. A classic black pants and white shirt combo usually does the trick. It’s appropriate for most occasions and feels effortless. No one will know that you’re still half asleep! This Fashionista makes the look her own by adding a touch of color and modern accessories.

A crisp, white button-up shirt is a wardrobe staple that every student should own. It looks chic paired with skinny jeans, tucked into a skirt or with dress pants for an interview. This Fashionista pairs hers with black ankle length pants that go perfectly with flats or heels. It’s worth investing in a great pair of dress pants that fit like they were made for you; they’ll last forever and go with anything.

A neutral green blazer adds a sophisticated pop of color to this look. It’s always important to have some fun accessories that show off your personal style. In this look, a statement necklace and cool loafers add a bit of edge and keep the look more on the casual side, while a classic black carryall bag completes the look.

How To: Want to steal this effortless style? Start with classic pieces like a button-up shirt and blazer. Then add a few of your favorite accessories. Try making your shoes or jewelry the focal point of your outfit.
