My campus is located in the heart of Midtown, Manhattan. The hustle and bustle of Lexington Ave is a destination for many Fashionistas. Today this Fashionista’s effortless sense of style stood out amongst many. I call this the polished city girl vibe; whether it be class, work or a last minute event, she can attend them all in this #ootd. She is wearing a ribbed mauve turtleneck tucked into black high-waist pants that have a wide-leg cut. Now, I know turtlenecks may remind some people of their grandmother, but on the contrary, what this piece does is add a touch of elegance. When worn in a modern fashion, like this Fashionista, a turtleneck creates a classic silhouette. To add warmth, she’s thrown on her moto leather jacket that has major seamed detailing. By the way, leather jackets are staple pieces; a killer moto-style cut is the way to go. I love how her sleek monochrome adidas sneakers tie the whole ensemble together. For accessories, she has paired pea-sized pearl earrings and a dainty silver watch, which work in favor of her minimalistic attire.
I hope you love this polished city girl look as much as I do. Even if your schedule doesn’t require a daily trip into the heart of your city, you can totally recreate this look, adjusting pieces to your style. This is the perfect outfit for an eventful day before you.
