ALL IN THE DETAILS: Patch Perfect

ALL IN THE DETAILS: Patch Perfect

Called the Windy City, Chicago’s temperatures yo-yo from below zero and rocket back into the 30s, Chicagoans prepare themselves for the unknown every morning. Not only is the city’s temperature a variable, but so is that of the Robert Morris Center. An old Sears department store, the historic building on State and Congress has trouble with regulating heat. Students are well aware that the second and third floors are absolutely freezing, while also knowing that the sixth floor is incredibly warm.

The solution to the ever changing temperatures, whether between floors or the transition from indoors to outdoors, this Fashionista has the best game plan: layers! Her statement piece is a bomber jacket with unique and witty patches on the left arm and breast. From there she chose a neutral color scheme, using navy and black. Her simple T-shirt dress is a slightly more gray toned shade of blue. As an additional layer, this Fashionista also added black tights to keep her legs warm.

As for accessories, the Fashionista was able to match a classy, shiny oxford shoe to a classically professional fedora. She also wore a brown strapped watch on her left arm. Finally, an accessory that is actually an essential for her to be able to see, the Fashionista wore her clear rimmed glasses.

Over-all, this Fashionista’s look is eclectic and almost gives a hipster vibe, but it works together due to the neutrals and uniqueness of the pairings. Matching casual wear with business apparel and mixing navy with blue are traditionally rebellious moves in the fashion world, but in this case it really works!

Don’t be afraid to take risks in your wardrobe choices!
