STYLE ADVICE: Kiss Me Pink

STYLE ADVICE: Kiss Me Pink

With only a few weeks left of the semester, it is natural for students to become less and less interested in their classes. The sun is out, and the weather is beautiful; I can guarantee that most students aren’t contemplating communication theories or algebraic expressions. A tip to keep yourself motivated these last few weeks is to dress like you have something to do and somewhere to go. Encourage yourself that there is only a month left of studying and then about three months to travel, shop, and sleep.

I’m sure you’ve noticed that when you roll out of bed in sweatpants you may not feel as productive or progressive. This Fashionista knows it too. I ran into this Fashionista on my way to class and immediately her black cropped sweater with pink kisses stood out to me, especially since most students had been wearing hoodies and jogging pants. It turns out she is a Style Guru as well! It was fate. I loved that she matches her lipstick color with her sweater, making the contrast between the pink and black more obvious.

Her jeans are a very light denim which pop against the black. If she had worn a darker denim, the sweater wouldn’t have contrasted, and her outfit would have darker tones overall, which is not suggested for spring wear. Ripped jeans are all the rage right now, I’m not sure if I’ve seen anyone without them this semester: however, her jeans are ripped all the way down. This also caught my eye, especially since most jeans I’ve seen have only had one or two rips in them. The shoes are a classic go-to for an outfit like this.  I wouldn’t have suggested anything different.

Overall, I like this outfit. If I were to change something, it would be the jeans and shoes, I would try exchanging them for a white skirt and black ballet flats to make it more “breathable,” with the weather now getting warmer, I would break up all this fabric.
