STYLE GURU STYLE: Silky and Snowy

Lately I’ve been super into thrift shopping, and this silk tank top is one of my favorite finds. Sustainability in fashion is incredibly important to me, which is why I’ve stopped shopping fast fashion (though a lot of my current wardrobe is from fast fashion brands, but I’m slowly transitioning). One of the easiest ways to avoid shopping fast fashion is by thrifting. Buying clothes from your local Goodwill not only is incredibly good for your wallet (that tank top was literally 99 cents), but it prevents tons of textile waste from being thrown into landfills.

I’ve found it’s quite difficult to incorporate silk into winter wear, even though it’s one of the most popular trends at the moment. However, I eventually decided to pair this tank top with a warm leather jacket and some thigh high boots. Transforming very summery pieces into cold weather outfits may be a hard task, but the overall look achieved is well worth it.

I normally wouldn’t consider wearing a silk tank top and denim skirt when it’s flurrying outside, but fashion school definitely gets you thinking outside the box. If you couldn’t tell by my cold, red hands, it was quite freezing out this day. I could have used a nice puffy parka coat and some gloves, but those would have killed the look and fashion requires sacrifices, right? However, I am NOT suggesting that you prioritize your outfit over the possibility of frostbite. Make better decisions than me.

On that note, I’d like to wish you all a happy February and suggest you stay warm!
