STYLE GURU STYLE: Pink Ruffles

STYLE GURU STYLE: Pink Ruffles

I can’t believe that my final semester in college, and with CollegeFashionista, is coming to a close. The last three semesters following the latest trends and gathering pictures of the best fashion on campus have flown by and have allowed not only my fashion sense to expand, but my writing, too. While anyone who has seen my articles can tell I veer towards the understated all-black looks, my time as a Style Guru has broadened my horizons to try out other, more adventurous, looks. Experimentation with my signature style is what drew me to the focal point of my final article—a pink ruffle-sleeved sweater.

Big, dramatic styles have been huge the last few seasons. Lately, we have seen celebrities and fashion bloggers stepping outside of the box with dramatic jeans, whether they are two-toned or cut and patched in different ways. However, another big trend in the colder months were large, tiered sweaters. I originally saw a similar sweater to the one I’m wearing on fashion blogger Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific and quickly sought out a more affordable version. I’ve had this pink sweater for a long time now, and I finally pulled it out of my closet for this unusually cold spring day. These layered, oversize sleeves are comfortable and keep me warm without a jacket—perfect for this 40 degree weather. While pink is not a color I typically wear, it is perfect for the springtime as campus starts to warm up and the flowers start to bud.

To go with the extra-girly pink top, I threw on a pair of light wash boyfriend jeans to give the look a more laid-back feel. I love the button details on these jeans. They add a little something extra to the typical boyfriend jean style. If you want to dress up the sweater a little more, throw on a pair of dark wash skinny jeans and you’ll instantly take the look up a notch. To top off the look, I threw on my gold watch and a pair of black studded sandals (because I have to stay true to what I know, right?) These shoes have a very low heel, making them extra comfortable yet still cute with the bold silver details. I’ll definitely be wearing these all summer long.

Thank you so much for keeping up with me for three amazing semesters with CollegeFashionista.
