STYLE GURU STYLE: Casual Around Campus

I often find myself in a rush to get out the door in the mornings because, let’s face it, those extra few minutes of sleep in the morning can be life saving! This means I’m sometimes running around in a panic trying to search for the right outfit before I dash off to class. Thankfully, I try to keep my style on the daily casual and chic, which allows me to throw on a few basic pieces that work wonders together. This is perfect for a time crunch because basics are so easy to pair together and it doesn’t take too much thought or planning to throw together a killer outfit that gets you ready for the whole day.

In this outfit, I’m keeping it simple by wearing easy staples in neutral colors. Though they are all neutral colors, the outfit still pops because of the contrast of the different colors, but is not overwhelming. I threw on a simple brown mock neck sweater matched with some light wash, high-waisted, button-down skinny jeans. Over this outfit, I wore a black coat with a black, satchel crossbody bag. The sweater and jeans combo keeps the outfit looking light for spring, even when it is paired with darker accessories. To finish the look, I continued with the casual theme and wore a pair of sporty sneakers.

This outfit is perfect for everyday wear because the simplicity and comfortability of it prepares you for anything that may spring up during the day, yet it’s coordinated enough to make it seem like you really know what you’re doing.
