STYLE ADVICE: Poinsettia Red

For my final post of the semester, I focused on this rad Fashionista who was getting ready for a holiday party with a few friends before the end of finals. By taking a trip to my closet, she added a few statement pieces to finish off her look. To stay warm while looking chic, she chose a thick knit poncho. Underneath, I helped her choose a layering piece that would pop. Together, we chose a white flowy tank that pops out of the bottom ever so slightly. With the poncho being a short cut, the layer underneath plays with dimensions, making this Fashionista’s torso appear longer.

Since it is below freezing most days in Minnesota, this Fashionista stuck to a wool-lined pair of leggings. These kept her warm while not taking away from the poncho and tank on top. Along with the cold weather comes the snow. Instead of wearing snow boots that could clash the entire look, this Fashionista opted for warm fuzzy socks and a tall pair of brown leather riding points.

To complete the whole look, this Fashionista curled her hair and added a pair of statement earrings to frame her face. A quick swipe of a darker maroon lipstick to pop on her lips and she was ready for a night on the town with her girlfriends.

I have so enjoyed being a Style Guru this fall semester! I hope you check my page out next semester when I return then. Happy holidays!
