STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Jumpsuits From Abroad

February 27th, 2015 at 2:00am

The beginning of the spring semester marks the return of students who studied abroad in the fall. As they make their way back from the four corners of the world, their suitcases are a little heavier with international trends. Come the second week of classes, the New College campus comes alive with exciting and unfamiliar style and the vivid prints of students’ international finds.

This Fashionista’s printed jumpsuit is the prefect example of a translation of Moroccan style to the New College stage. While this flowy and bright jumpsuit is coupled with an oversized cardigan and Teva sandals, it could just as easily be worn on its own on your day off or pulled together with a belt and a fun pair of sunglasses for a sunny day of shopping. The wonderful thing about jumpsuits is that they are super easy and speak for themselves. This Fashionista’s brightly printed Moroccan masterpiece certainly does not keep quiet.

While you may not have had the chance to take your own fall adventure, that does not mean that you can’t dress like you’ve spent a few months as a world traveler! To add a little bit of international whimsy to your look, take on trends like the classic Breton top and a coral lip of the French Riviera or the innovative tailored leather looks that Marina Hoermanseder graced the runways of Berlin last season.

If you’ve fallen in love with the ease of the jumpsuit like this Fashionista, try a casual floral jumpsuit, or keep it elegant but fresh with clean lines and linear jewelry. Either way, the jumpsuit is a simple solution to keep your travels carefree and your luggage light!
