With winter being in full force in Ohio, it is getting harder and harder to not just throw on a giant hoodie and a parka that makes you look like a marshmallow when walking around campus. So what do you do when the weather is less than desirable and you do not want to turn into a popsicle? Throw on the basics and accessorize!
There are so many ways you can turn basic pieces into a chic outfit. Start with your favorite pair of jeans and a cozy sweater, add a fun choker or statement earrings to accessorize, and throw on a jacket that is equally as warm as it is stylish because there is nothing worse than having your outfit overshadowed by your knee-length black puffer jacket. A cute pair of booties or sneakers will finish off your look so you are styled to perfection from head to toe, literally.
This Fashionista has this idea down perfectly. Seen wearing jeans and a cream sweater, she elevates these winter basics by adding an edgy leather jacket and a fun scarf tied around her neck. Her black leather booties are effortlessly chic and her patterned socks are just too cute not to mention. She took your basic sweater and jeans from drab to fab. Her top knot keeps her hair out of her face and safe from the blistering Kent winds and the braid detail elevates her Fashionista status even further. The details are what makes this outfit and they should be staples in every college girl’s winter wardrobe.
