STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Prep In Your Step

Since it’s the first week back to campus from winter break, Fashionistas are pulling out all the stops for their first week of classes. Strutting down the halls in the latest trends helps to build confidence as well as a great first impression. One of the many trends I have seen around my campus has been knee socks with riding boots and skirts. This Fashionista is rocking it by adding her own style. The trend reminds me of a stylish twist to a school uniform.

This Fashionista embraces her preppy side with Tory Burch riding boots and a ‘60s-inspired plaid skirt. She pulls the look together with a simple chunky chain necklace and a classic trench coat. An outfit like this can be flaunted on a typical school day or for a class presentation. The outfit reads as very classy and professional while being really cute.

You can’t go wrong with investing in riding boots and knee socks because of all the options you can wear with them. Adding the socks helps protect your legs during the freezing winter months. It also adds more pop if you are wearing a simple outfit. Riding boots are generally a must-have because they simply go with everything! With all these options, your closet and wallet would love you for purchasing an outfit like this.
