STYLE ADVICE: Keep It Simple

As a college student, the amount of space you have in a dorm room is very limited. How many articles of clothing can you really bring with you to school? Having mainly versatile pieces in your small wardrobe is a huge help when you want to wear something new and different each day, while staying fashionable. Versatile pieces include anything that is a neutral color, including denim, and anything that can match other pieces easily.

I spotted this Fashionista on my way to class and instantly noticed her simple, yet fashion-forward outfit. Starting off with her medium wash skinny jeans, you notice right away the simplicity of her look. A pair of jeans like these can be matched with almost any everyday, casual attire. They are a must have item in anyone’s closet. Although denim can be matched with a pattern or a solid color, this Fashionista kept it simple with a black turtleneck. Owning a black sweater or shirt is a great idea for anyone trying to minimize the amount of clothes they have in their closet. A black top can be thrown under almost any jacket and matched with any bottom, making it effortless to throw together an outfit.

Finally, what tops off the look is her long, gray wool blend coat and black heeled boots. Having a statement coat can completely change any look. When in a rush in the morning, it is hard to put together a cute outfit in the short amount of time you have. Another item to consider owning is a pair of black shoes and a small black purse. Not only is she wearing basic black ankle boots, but they are also heeled. The heels show that she might have put in a bit more effort and make this outfit go from an easy and plain look, to a well put together look. Although she is wearing everyday pieces that she could have thrown on before she walked out the door, this coat and heels make it seem as if she carefully put this outfit together.
