ALL IN THE DETAILS: Watches and Work Boots

ALL IN THE DETAILS: Watches and Work Boots

We’ve all heard the age-old proverb, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”  And it seems to be totally true.

There’s not much time to be expressive when you’re buried under pounds of homework, have to study for three exams and also have a ten-page paper (one you’ve been pushing off for weeks) due tomorrow. We’ve all been there. It’s called mid-term.

During such a daunting time in the semester, it can be hard to fight the urge to throw on baggy sweats. What’s the point of looking stylish if you’re just going to spend the day at the library, your head buried in textbooks and empty coffee cups piling up at your feet?

Well, for one, style lets you express yourself during a time when your creativity might not be at its peak. And two, all the compliments you receive on your outfit can really brighten up a dreary day.

This Fashionista has that all figured out.

Though she’s surely drowning in her own sad version of mid-term sorrows, she knows she’s on top of one thing: her fashion.

She’s rocking the traditional work boot, laces untied in a manner suggestive of her devil-may-care attitude. They pair brilliantly with her lightly distressed skinny jeans. The conservative holes make the jeans perfect for those days when you’re torn between being professional or dressing-down. They can work either way! With the collar of her quarter-zip pullover half up, half down, her signature Bonaventure lanyard hanging out of her pocket, and her tech-y watch wrapped around her left wrist, she’s got an outfit that screams practicality with an edge. Everything about her suggests she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty, and her square-frame tortoiseshell glasses add the perfect intellectual touch.

If you’re ever looking for an outfit that shows people you mean business but aren’t afraid to take a walk on the wild side, take some hints from this Fashionista.

Functional footwear like waterproof boots, closet staples like the white T-shirt and accessories that double as both navigational tools and time tellers will certainly prepare you for any adventure or misadventure that may come your way.

Oh, and by the way, you’ll look great too.
