STYLE GURU STYLE: Military Inspired Look

STYLE GURU STYLE: Military Inspired Look

Being that I attend the Fashion Institute of Technology, I have to make sure that I am always on my A game. The days of arriving to class in a slouchy sweater and baggy sweatpants are long gone. Being around hundreds of fashion students, I am constantly inspired by diverse trends and cutting edge styles.

Recently, I’ve noticed that many fashion students are coveting suede thigh high boots, which are usually paired with a classic mini dress.  Instead, I’ve decided to go with a military inspired look that accentuates my body, which includes a grungy army jacket with detailing of brass embellishments. This jacket is versatile because it can be worn during multiple seasons: winter, spring, summer, and fall, and is the perfect piece for layering during these crisp months. Wearing all black most of time can get boring, so I love to spice things up by adding a pop of color. My leggings are suede as well and are embroidered with a floral pattern, which ties together all of the pieces and creates a look that is more appealing to the eye. To complete this look, I added a funky pearl choker that looks dynamite with my ribbed boho bag. The bag has a worn out look with big buckles that slouch down. To top it off, my Smart Watch is encrusted with silver crystals, which is not only great for style, but for tracking my calories and exercise too.

Forget to wear makeup like I did? No problem! Slap on a pair of blue shades and you’re good to go.
