STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Red Hot

For those of us who grew up in and/or go to school in New England, we know a thing or two about snowstorms. We’re used to checking our email every two minutes, waiting for those class cancellations. We start mentally planning our snow-day-Netflix schedule. Alas, we still have class when the snow starts to fall, and we subsequently fall into the depths of hoodies, yoga pants and UGGs. But that’s not the case for this Fashionista. She does not let a little nor’easter get in her way of looking fabulous on campus. Her chic look is perfect for a class presentation or interview in the morning, but it is casual enough to wear to class and for the rest of the day. Despite the freezing cold, she looks red hot.

The boldness of the red jacket is the focal point of this Fashionista’s look. Notice how she expertly matches her red lip color to further complete the outfit. The rest of her look consists of neutral black and white so that the red jacket is able to pop without being too busy or overwhelming. Having one key item as the anchor of an outfit is the key to pulling off this stylish look.

This Fashionista describes her personal style as being a mix of vintage and modern. Her chic, red jacket is reminiscent of a classic Yves Saint Laurent silhouette. Her look is timeless, and the nod to menswear is an everlasting trend seen season after season. She balances it out and pulls the look together by pairing this statement piece with edgy, black, studded ankle boots from ALDO, antique rings and a fun, whimsical kate spade new york bag.
