STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Sporty-Chic

Every Syracuse University student is aware of how unpredictable the weather can be. When spring semester rolls around, everyone knows it’s basically freezing all the time. With the fall, though, the weather is completely dubious; it can be sunny and warm one minute and hailing the next. You need to be prepared at all times, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t look cute doing it. This Fashionista’s windbreaker caught my eye instantly; it combines comfort with simplicity, but is still fashion-forward and pulls the whole outfit together.

Taking athletic wear to a whole new level, she rocks a bright, sporty adidas windbreaker paired with a dope pair of adidas sneakers and some simple black leggings, along with a Victoria’s Secret PINK bralette underneath to stay cool. She kept the accessories to a minimum as not to overdo the outfit, but still wore pieces that stood out. Her glasses are pretty much a fashion statement on their own, as they draw attention to her face and bring out her eyes. The earrings also complement the jewelry in her hair really well.

Duplicating this look is simple and can be done in all seasons. Just make sure not to incorporate more than two statement pieces to avoid clashing.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Don’t be afraid to do you and dress for yourself. It’s okay to dress casual sometimes, and it is possible to be comfortable and look cute at the same time. The trick is to wear a really simple, basic outfit, but throw on a statement piece that’ll just tie it all together.”
