It may be snowing on campus, but this Fashionista knows just how to turn up the heat! If you’re residing somewhere that the harsh winters are taking a toll, you understand how hard it can be to find the motivation to get ready for the day especially when your bed is so much warmer than the frozen tundra outside your window.

This Fashionista made sure to capture the dark colors of winter throughout her entire outfit. Her bodysuit is the perfect article to keep her warm and cozy whether she’s walking outside on her way to class or sitting in a chilly classroom. This Ariel lace long-sleeved bodysuit from Saks Fifth Avenue is not only the perfect color for the season, but it also provides a high neckline and long sleeves to help cover up when braving the harsh winter winds.

Selecting the right pair of pants to go with this unique bodysuit can be a challenge, but of course this Fashionista was prepared to find a match. She chose to go with a pair of maroon, high-waisted jeans that matched the color of the design within her top. These women’s high-waisted performance stretch jean leggings from Express come in a variety of colors to go with anything you can find in your closet. Not only are they sleek and sassy, but they’re also incredibly comfortable for those long days full of classes.

The leather jacket is an essential accessory that should be a part of everyone’s wardrobe. Layering is a great way to stay warm during the winter months, and what better way to layer than with a sleek leather jacket? The styling technique let’s you wear even more of your favorite clothes to keep warm. The best part? You can find one almost anywhere for a decent price. This women’s Blanknyc faux leather moto jacket from Nordstrom is a great choice, but if you’re in college and on a budget like this featured Fashionista, make sure to check out your local Salvation Army or Goodwill to see what treasures they have hidden on the racks.

To keep the color scheme flowing throughout her entire outfit, this Fashionista chose to wear her suede ankle boots similar to this pair from H&M. The small heel on the boot provides a perfect match for the outfit’s attitude by continuing the hints of sass.

These winter months can be exhausting: no sunshine, extreme amounts of snowfall, and icy sidewalks. As much as you want to roll out of bed and run to class in those cozy sweatpants and old high school hoodie, push yourself to turn something simple into a creative layered look this winter. Remember, always dress for success!
