STYLE GURU STYLE: Layers And Layers

You can imagine my dismay when I woke up for class last week only to look out the window and see that it was snowing. That’s right—snowing—during the second-to-last week of school. I begrudgingly pulled out my boots and contemplated what to wear in the 35 degree “springtime” weather.

In Rodarte‘s fall 2015 ready-to-wear runway show, models trekked down the runway in all different types of layers. Boasting everything from layered shirts and jackets to layered necklaces, they also combined the colors black and brown. Knowing I’d need some layers for the chilly weather, I mimicked my outfit from this look’s concept in Rodarte’s show.

I wore a basic white T-shirt, a wide-stitched cardigan, dark-wash high-waisted jeans, a layered gold necklace, brown ankle boots and a black beanie. To ensure warmth, I tossed my lightweight Tommy Hilfiger coat over it all.

I love to be comfortable, especially when I’m sitting in class. This casual look allowed me to do that, while also incorporating a few runway trends at the same time. I’m the type who always layers in cold weather, so throwing on the oversized sweater was nothing new. Underneath, I wore a black lace halter bra to add some surprise detail, much like Rodarte did with the lace panels down the length of the model’s pants.

The Urban Outfitters gold layered necklace I’m wearing adds another fun detail to the overall neutral look. I paired my top and sweater with my favorite pair of deep blue high-waisted jeans and finished off the look with some tan ankle boots. I was unsure about putting the grays, blacks and browns together, but I think it worked and still looks class friendly and cute.

This was the perfect outfit to wear during an abnormally cold spring day. It was warm and comfortable, but also mixed in some fresh trends and unique details.
