STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: A Touch of Class

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: A Touch of Class

Ahh, the time of year many of us dread, the end of summer. It’s time to say goodbye to tank tops, bathing suits and trips to the beach and time to welcome jeans, sweaters and spending hours in the library. For me, I love this time of the year. Everyone is flooding back into their college town, reuniting with friends and settling into their college home. New fashion trends are beginning, the seasons are changing, so you always want to look your best when going to class. As a college student, you will often notice many different trends and styles. Whether you prefer a jean skirt or sweat pants, the key is to wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident.

This Fashionista is wearing a comfortable yet put together look for attending classes. She is wearing boyfriend jeans, a black shirt and an open flannel shirt from PacSun. The Fashionista also paired the outfit with a simple black and silver belt with a black chocker. 

Since the weather is always tricky this time of the year, the flannel is great for cooler mornings.If the day warms up, simply wrap it around the waist and you will still look put together. Living and attending school in Morgantown requires lots of walking and climbing very steep hills. Comfortable shoes are a must! This Fashionista chooses to wear Birkenstock sandals since they are very comfy for walking.

Going back to school also means lots of new expenses. So, if you’re looking to save money this year there are some ways to be trendy without splurging. One idea is to make homemade destroyed jeans. This Fashionista made her own jeans by buying high-wasted jeans from Goodwill and ripping holes into the legs. In the end, they look identical to a pair of jeans that would have cost $50 or more at many of the trendy retail stores.
