STYLE GURU STYLE: Stripes and Bombers

This look that I’m wearing today was motivated by me wanting to be comfy and casual, yet cute at the same time.

When I am getting ready in the mornings I mainly go for comfort and put pieces together that will still look like I tried. With this particular outfit, I chose to wear an oversized striped shirt that I recently got from Old Navy and instead of pairing this top with loose jeans, I went for one of my favorite pair of high-waisted jeans from Pacsun; you guys, they’re so comfortable! It was super cold this day so I put on a navy blue bomber jacket from H&M to give the outfit a little more color and also to stay warm throughout the day. For the shoes, I chose a basic pair of black Chelsea boots from Forever21, and these have been a huge staple piece for me throughout the colder months. Lastly, for accessories, I usually like to keep it minimal. I chose a gray tote from Francesca’s, a pair of gold hoop earrings, a gold chain necklace, and a few gold rings.

Lately, I have been loving everything oversized, and it’s now starting to be the main thing in my closet these days. For a little Style Guru advice: First, for those not sure how to wear the oversized look, I recommend pairing an oversized top with a small bottom or an oversized pant, like boyfriend jeans with a form fitting top and maybe an oversize jacket overtop. Second, Bomber jackets have become a big trend in the fashion world lately, and I recommend for anyone who is into a lot of trends, to always add a few basic key staple pieces to balance everything out.
