WHAT TO WEAR: Back to School

February 18th, 2016 at 2:10am

Well Fashionistas and Fashionistos, it’s that time of year again, when the holidays are officially over and we have no choice but to file back into our old routine: go to class, study, sleep, repeat. Why not add something fresh to the gloomy winter weeks of school by dressing in a new style?

We have all heard the phrase “dress for the job you want, not the job you have” countless times. But, we do not have to wait until we are in the professional world to incorporate that mindset into our lives. Why not “dress for the day you want, not the day you have?” For example, you might have classes starting at 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Obviously, your go-to outfit is your favorite hoodie and leggings, but why not wear an outfit that is going to turn heads? You’ll feel more confidence to conquer your long day and a little bit of confidence can go a long way.

This Fashionista executed her back to school look flawlessly. She took a classic style and added personal flare. Her charcoal blazer with a simple white top correlate perfectly with her plaid pleated skirt. Her brown and white oxfords are the perfect shoe choice for this outfit. But, what really makes this outfit stand out are the small details that show her personality. Her cuffed sleeves and watch are subtle, but make a big statement. Her striped ankle socks make for the cutest finishing touch to complete the look. This outfit is perfect to wear to class if you want to impress your professors and classmates. It’s also great for an interview or first day on a job.

One Simple Change: Since this Fashionista’s look gives off major British vibes, this outfit could be perfect to wear on a vacation abroad. Since it’s a lot colder in England than south Georgia, just add a blanket scarf and tights and this outfit is good to go!
