STYLE ADVICE: Stay True to You

STYLE ADVICE: Stay True to You

Attending fashion school in the trendiest city in the world is not always an easy task. There seems to always be someone who is dressed better than you, has more clothes than you, or who is trendier than you. After three years of college, I have realized that it is more important to tune those thoughts out and focus on your own unique style!

This Fashionista is a creative person and that reflects in her outfit choices. Even with an outfit as simple as a top, shorts, and a plaid shirt—she makes it look effortlessly cool. With spring weather approaching, it is time to begin to think about how we can dress accordingly as well. This Fashionista pulled it off perfectly, opting for a long sleeve black top and fringed black denim shorts. Sometimes when you want to add a touch of uniqueness to an outfit, the best thing to do is start off with staple items and then build. This is exactly what she did!

Once this Fashionista had her staple items, she added handmade necklaces and bracelets that caught my eye immediately. She then added a black and white flannel which she tied around her waist. This is the perfect touch to the outfit, and also a smart outfit choice because once the sun set and it got colder, she was able to wear it as an extra layer. She topped her outfit off with New Balance slate gray sneakers. These sneakers are not only sensible for walking around the city, but they are so cute!

My main piece of style advice to college students would be to stay true to whatever you feel like wearing! One day that may be pajamas and the next day that may be a ball gown, and that is what makes fashion so incredible.
