STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Back To Basics

This semester is in full swing and as much as we don’t want to admit it, midterms are right around the corner. Late night studying can lead to almost sleeping through your dreaded 8:00 a.m. class, and rushing to make it there on time. Rather than throwing on sweatpants and almost falling asleep in class, why not put together a simple, but cute outfit. This Fashionista knows exactly how to combine basics into a well put-together look.

I love that this Fashionista can rock a simple sweater and boots. She takes a basic outfit and makes it completely fashionable. Sweaters can be one of the biggest fashion oversights in my opinion. Everyone thinks that they need to be dressed up—add a denim button-up or a statement necklace to make the outfit complete. As much as I love to dress up sweaters, there is nothing wrong with taking it back to the basics and leaving the sweater as is.

The sweater and its bold stripes is the key piece of this outfit. Are stripes not your thing? Try a pullover sweater with polka-dots or a solid color cardigan. Pair it with leggings and you have another complete outfit that that brings you back to the basics!

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “No need to try to rock an outfit that isn’t you. If your style isn’t the look that is walking down the runway this month, no need to worry! Don’t be afraid to rock the basics and be yourself!”
