STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: A High-Low Winter

Winter is officially in full blast and all over campus, students are bundling up with everything from heavy parkas to fashionable peacoats. When students aren’t braving the cold weather walking from class to class, they are cozying up inside with winter go-tos such as: knit cardigans, sweaters, comfy crewnecks and hoodies. Straying away from the basic sweater, this Fashionista chose a comfortable and practical jersey knit, high-low long sleeved top. High-low tops have been a style trend for quite some time and continue to make a statement in fashion.

High-low tops are extremely versatile. They can be worn with almost anything and anywhere. This Fashionista chose a comfortable and simple look by pairing her oversized plum high-low long sleeved top with leggings. Then, she adds a pop of color with a bright mustard yellow cable knit scarf. This outfit is a perfect and easy look for being comfy in class or staying warm while studying at a local coffee shop. When wearing a plain colored top, it is easy to add color to it with a patterned scarf or a bold gem necklace. The high-low top is perfect for winter, because it keeps your style contemporary, as well as, it can go from casual studying to an dinner date.

This Fashionista went the casual yet chic route with the high-low top by styling it with leggings and trendy, tan low-heeled booties. Heeled booties were a huge fashion trend in the fall and continue to grow in popularity throughout the winter season. They can be perfectly transitioned for the wintertime by layering on warm, fuzzy socks. You can make a high-low top date night appropriate by switching out the leggings for a pair of dark wash distressed jeggings and a statement necklace paired with matching layered bangles.

When getting ready for class or an afternoon trip to the coffee shop, grab your favorite high-low top and layer it with fun, warm accessories instead of a basic crewneck sweater.
