STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Hip Hugger

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Hip Hugger

We are in that awkward, in between season where summer is over, but it’s not quite fall, and this can make dressing for class difficult! You wake up for class in the morning and it’s a chilly 60 degrees, but by mid-afternoon you’re dying in the heat on your way to other classes. This sad reality causes many Fashionista/os to make midday wardrobe changes. But with a million other responsibilities, this is just a time hassle, especially when you could have one stellar look to wear the entire day! This Fashionista demonstrates the perfect solution to this weather crisis. That solution being something we all have in our closet—a lightweight jacket.

She styled a light acid-washed denim jacket tied across her waist with a vintage floral slip dress. The jacket keeps you warm enough for your morning classes and can be tied around your waist to keep you from sweating later on in the day. This has two benefits: one being it won’t take up valuable backpack space, and two being it breaks up your silhouette, offering a two-for-one look with the same clothing items. The possibilities are endless.

She paired some slip-on platform sandals with this outfit that make a statement by themselves. They are a great shoe to wear to class because they give you the extra height without being painfully uncomfortable. She accessorized with a ’90s choker necklace and some nose rings. The juxtaposition of the throwback necklace with the current trend of doubling up a septum ring with a nose ring gives her a punk twist on this outfit.
