STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Jack(et) of All Trades

All of the Fashionistas and Fashionistos here at CollegeFashionista know that overcoats have been all the rage in recent months. From the likes of stylish celebrities like Miranda Kerr and fashion houses like Céline to readily accessible stores like Topshop and Zara, overcoats can easily be found within every price range and splashed across the pages of winter issues of fashion magazines.

Ask yourself this: what is more easy and effortless than throwing on a thick and warm boyfriend-inspired jacket over absolutely any outfit? I will tell you what: a denim overcoat. Not only is this oversized acid-washed jean jacket totally trendy, but it can be easily transitioned into spring and warmer months, making it a stylish staple to have in any Fashionista’s or Fashionisto’s wardrobe.

From head to toe, this Fashionista’s look is daring and bold. This Fashionista makes her long denim jacket the star of her outfit by pairing it with all things black. She begins her look with a long black sweater tunic, black over-the-knee socks and a killer pair of chunky-heeled combat booties. She adds long, layered necklaces, a black beanie and a pair of vintage Wayfarers. My favorite finishing touch? Her ‘90s-esque hot pink lip color. This Fashionista manages to combine all of the latest trends into one fabulous and fierce ensemble, proving that sometimes in fashion more is better.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I love keeping my outfits simple but adding a statement item like this jacket or a bold lip color. Never be afraid to experiment with different shades of lipstick!”
