When it comes to dressing casual and still looking stylish, some people just have it. Some Fashionistas and Fashionistos can throw on a T-shirt and jeans and look just as cool as the person who thought about their outfit for days. Stylish, casual dressing is so important, especially at college because although style creates your persona, it’s still important to be comfortable in a world where comfort is key and business professional is not a thing yet.

This Fashionista has mastered casual style. Ripped black jeans, a striped T-shirt and cool black boots are easy and stylish, and her minimal accessories keep her outfit within a comfortable range. All of these pieces are an easy go-to for classic dressing, so she adds a simple pop of red lipstick to add some flair. By keeping classic colors of black and white, this Fashionista creates a simple look that can be recreated and tweaked over time.

The simplicity of the look also leaves room to accessorize. Here, she keeps the accessories to a minimum, but if she wanted to go out to dinner or to a concert, this Fashionista could add many different types of accessories to this look and it would still look good. This Fashionista has taken a simple look and made it her own. She injected her own personal style by incorporating the cool boots and round sunglasses to an outfit that otherwise would be worn by many different Fashionistas.
