STYLE ADVICE: Comfortable Classics

The ideas of layering and of having go-to classic garments always appear in my CollegeFashionista articles, so it is not surprising that this one encompasses both. I think it is important to allow yourself the ease of having a small assortment of items that will not fail you when you are picking out a new outfit. This Fashionista provides a great example of what items one could keep in their collection.

To start, this black trench can work well with many different looks, from casual to more dressy. It serves as a lightweight option during the tricky transition months between seasons. Then, make use of a good pair of dark wash skinny jeans, as it can look a little more put-together than light wash. This is definitely another area of your wardrobe that is worth investing in. The perfect pair of jeans can completely elevate one’s look, and a change from ill-fitted denim to THE pair is one that has immediate gratification. We all know how that is!

This Fashionista layered a cardigan into her look as well. This is a good garment to wear with a lace tee because the lace does not keep one very warm. One could also opt for a long-sleeve top instead. If one wanted to create a monochromatic ensemble, a black lace top would be a great option. Finish off the outfit with a classic pair of ankle boots. There are black and a brown versions, depending on what your color palette usually includes. As always, make adjustments to fit your own personal style. That is what will give you the best outfit every time!
