STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: New Year, New Trends

What do they say, new year, new…trends? This year we are not necessarily saying out with the old, in with the new. We all know its hard to constantly try to revamp your closet, and is for most college students, unrealistic.  So, what stays and what goes?

Most styles go through what some Fashionistas/os may look at as the circle of life, where eventually trends from previous generations come back full circle in new and innovative ways. The correct terminology for this process is called the fashion cycle, where trends do intact come back from previous generations at an estimate of every six years. This years 2015-2016 fall and winter trends were set out to be based on the styles of the ’70s.

This trendy Fashionista is from Framingham State University, who also happens to be a very close friend of mine. She is not only a true “Belieber,” but is also the biggest trend believer on campus. For this post her look is supporting what will continue to trend in the winter 2016 season. Black ripped jeans are a must, even though the goosebumps might not be worth it. These jeans can transition to an everyday winter look to eventually a cute summer night out. She is also wearing a faux fur camel vest, which was a major trend in the ’70s. As we all know, vests are currently trending and don’t seem to be going out of style any time soon. The outfit was completed with her chocolate brown booties while the simplicity of layers helped pull the entirety of the outfit together whilst, being accessorized with a statement necklace and a classic Longchamp bag.

While yes, all the pieces of this look put together an outfit, individually, each item has its own statement and can be pulled together and paired with an unlimited amount of options.

Forever allowing your clothes to work for you, instead of you working for your clothes.
