ALL IN THE DETAILS: The Bow Ties It Together

No matter what your personal style may be, it is hard to deny the cute appeal that a bow can add to any article of clothing. As a definitive girly girl, I have a serious bow fetish, which is why this Fashionista grabbed my attention. Her lilac blouse, equipped with a wispy chiffon bow, was the icing on top of  her perfect ensemble. It added a wonderfully unique quality to her feminine outfit.

Not only did I adore the bow the on her top, I also admired the color palette and different textures that she used to complete her look. From head to toe, she looked like she came straight out of Seventeen. Her black, quilted leather sneakers added an effortless bit of edge to her outfit, while the detailed black and white prints on her buttoned skater skirt harmonized wonderfully with her soft, pastel blouse. The  pink, leather tote that she carried on her arm infused a vibrant pop into her outfit as well.

In addition to the subtle elegance of her outfit, I appreciated the utility of it. She achieved the perfect balance in the spectrum of what is chic and what is practical. For instance, instead of wearing a pump or satin ballet flat, she opted for a cool sneaker. Likewise, she wore a skater skirt with an awesome print instead of a trouser or a pencil skirt. This Fashionista is a prime example of how to achieve the perfect campus look.

How to: If you’re looking for a way to look cute without being too formal for class, use this Fashionista as your guide! Start out with a focal piece of your look, such as a bow top. Then, add a comfortable pair of shorts or a skirt with a cool print. To top off your look, add a cool sneaker or flat. Feel free to experiment with different colors and textures for your ensemble. And most importantly, remember that fashion is fun!
