STYLE GURU STLYE: Affordable Trends

Finals are finally coming to an end which means I’m finally not too stressed to wear a cute outfit. In this outfit I wanted to tie together some popular trends but keep it affordable for the everyday college student. The first trend I wanted to wear was the corset. No, you do not have to walk around in a real tight corset while at class. Now that’s just not practical, but that doesn’t mean you can’t rock the look. I came across my white shirt at Zara, and it is perfect and affordable. On the bottom it has the corset look to fit the trend, but it’s still loose fitting to keep it comfortable. It is a basic white T-shirt taken to a new level, and I’m obsessed!

I decided to pair this top with a jean skirt. Yes, jean skirts are coming back. You can find them being worn by Rihanna, Kirsten Dunst, Kim Kardashian, and Reese Witherspoon. I found mine at Forever 21, but I decided it needed something more. I took the bottom of the hem and started cutting it up and fraying it with a nail file to give it a little something extra. Don’t be afraid to DIY your clothes to make them more you!

For my shoes, I wore a pair of strappy black sandals that I also found at Forever 21. I also chose to wear a baby pink choker from Brandy Melville that I am obsessed with. It just adds a little color to the outfit and is again, on trend! This whole outfit was very affordable and on trend. What could be better?
