STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Scarves and Sweaters Make Everything Better

College is very stressful. Regardless of your major or what classes you may be taking this semester, you will always feel like you don’t have enough time in your day. Consequently, you will feel much too lazy to put together a stylish outfit in the morning. Thankfully, with fall in full swing, dressing cute will be effortless. Just remember to keep two items at your bedside every day in this cold weather: a scarf and a sweater.

I ran into this Fashionista as I was waiting in line for coffee. Something about her outfit made me look twice. It was so simple, but so fashionable at the same time. Her high-waisted black jeans are sleek and tight, making her legs look even longer than they actually are. Her solid, burgundy crop top is loose and soft, contrasting well with her dark, stiff jeans and complimenting her figure wonderfully. To complete her outfit, this Fashionista is wearing an adorable pair of booties that she stumbled upon in a small boutique in Dallas, Texas. Tieing in a fancier pair of shoes versus a pair of casual shoes kicks her outfit up a notch and gives her overall look a much more sophisticated style.

Every part of this outfit is up to par, but I think that the two key components of her outfit are her scarf and her sweater. Without those two items, her outfit would be far too plain. Her two-tone infinity scarf makes a subtle statement. It adds a unique, colorful touch while still complying with the simplicity of the rest of her outfit. Her sweater cardigan was also a stellar choice. The knitted texture gives off a comfy, warm vibe but also makes the look a lot more interesting. Both of these pieces took this Fashionista’s outfit from casual to chic in a matter of seconds—easy AND fashionable.

Now you have one last thing to worry about in the morning. You won’t have to think too hard about what to wear if scarves and sweaters are your go-to items this season. With a few variations of these two pieces, any outfit will look well put together and stylish.
