ALL IN THE DETAILS: Not So Basic

Oh my gosh, Becky look at her…JACKET. In all of my years spent scouring the mall for pieces to add to my clothing collection, I have never seen a jacket like this. As soon as I saw this jacket, I knew that I had to capture it and share it with the CollegeFashionista world. As I’ve told you before, I am all about using basics and statement pieces to build my outfits. I love keeping my look simple and then choosing a piece that really represents my personality to bring the whole outfit to life. This is exactly what this Fashionista did with this particular look.

How To: Wondering how to get this Fashionista’s look? Grab your most comfortable simple black top. I’m sure all of you have your go to one—I know I do. Then pair that with your favorite pair of skinny jeans, preferably dark wash for this particular look. You’re already building your outfit! Now here is where the fun comes in. Pick a statement jacket/sweater/kimono—it’s really up to you. This particular Fashionista chose a faux leather/sweater combo jacket, which I absolutely adore. If you’re not able to find this exact one, pick on similar or one that really represents your individual style. Finish the look off with a pair of super-chic black booties. If you want to add even more individuality and style to this look throw on your favorite necklace or chose a pair of statement earrings. Whatever you chose, make it your own!
