All In The Details: Unique Chic

All In The Details: Unique Chic

Anyone know what’s better than unique taste?

A major part of fashion is defining your personal brand and building upon that. Expression through clothing and your look is almost as important as not missing that 8 A.M. class that takes attendance every. single. day.

Someone once said trends will fade, but style is eternal. Every true fashionista in college knows ballin’ on a budget is the way to go, while also staying true to personal taste. It seems the 90’s are back and here to stay, and where better to find staple, retro pieces than local thrift shops. This hottie seems to have taken a note or two from the era by tucking in a quarter-sleeve shirt into high waisted shorts. An entire wardrobe can be built around classic pieces, including leather bags and John Lennon inspired shades. Splurge on sunnies here, and save here.  If you’re interested in finding a thrift store near you, check out this thrift store locator.

From the time summer hits until everyone is holding on to warmer days, a good pair of high-waisted shorts should find a solid home in everyone’s closet. Versatile and cheeky, who could resist. This fashionista copped her distressed shorts from American Eagle and added a pair of strappy gladiator sandals for added flare. When the sun starts to fade and the leaves begin to fall, pair those shorts with tights and a sweater for an adorable look.

While it’s obvious the detailed tattoos add the finishing, irreproducible touches to the monochromatic outfit. If you’re not into the tattoo scene, try replacing the pop of color with a embellished bag or patterned clutch. However, if you are looking to add a bit of ink find a shop near you, and be sure to research intensely and make decisions wisely.
