ALL IN THE DETAILS: New Wave Babe

This Fashionista’s minimal chic outfit scores major points for being professional while still showcasing her personality. She was wearing this outfit to an on-campus interview and wanted to showcase her creative side. As they say, the devil is in the details, and this look is all about the accessories. Her metallic platform sandals are a standout statement piece while still being practical for every day.

If you don’t already own a great pair of tailored trousers, invest in some ASAP. This sleek pant style pairs with almost anything, from a white T-shirt and sneakers to heels and a blazer. You will instantly up your style game and never be at a loss for an interview-ready outfit again! Our Fashionista paired her trousers with a boxy, cropped, white button-up shirt. Rather than going with a classic button-up, this exaggerated shape flatters her waist and mirrors the proportions of the platform sandals and cropped pants.

Her pastel pink backpack adds the perfect pop of color to top off this ensemble. Together with the metallic sandals, the backpack keeps the look fun and youthful. A structured arm bag could feel too stuffy and polished with this look. If a backpack isn’t your style, a crossbody bag in a fun color or print would also work here.

What lessons can we take away from our lovely Fashionista du jour? Minimalism is here to stay and is as chic as ever. Embrace the simplicity, but don’t forget to tap into your fun side when it comes to accessories. As we say at CollegeFashionista, it’s #allinthedetails.
