WHAT TO WEAR: Back to School

Well Fashionista/os, 2015 is in full swing. Not only is it that time again to make a bunch of resolutions and [attempt] to be an even better you, it’s time for school to start back. After a long, relaxing break and an overload of celebrating, family time and casserole eating, the excitement to get back to campus and start a new semester is definitely here.

This Fashionista came back to Athens with a bang. She is sporting a super chic, all black ensemble that certainly isn’t letting the chill of January weather get in the way of her style.  She has on a loose Tibi tank paired with an oversized, slouchy sweater draped over it.  If you don’t have a giant cardigan sweater yet this winter, you are missing out.  They are ridiculously comfy and the perfect piece to throw on over any tank for a relaxed, class-ready look.  She also has on a pair of dark wash J Brand skinny jeans. These jeans bring even more spunk to this outfit with their exposed zippers on the side pockets and at the ankle. She completes her look with a bold necklace by Dannijo and a metallic blue 3.1 Phillip Lim bag. I have a serious crush on this bag, and think we all deserve a bag with this much personality in our wardrobes! These two pieces add just the right punch of color to complete this dark, chic outfit.

This Fashionista has managed to pull off looking like a total rockstar heading to class while still feeling warm and comfy on a dreary Athens Wednesday. Let’s just face it, in the dead of winter is there really anything that can make you look any better than just wearing black?

One Simple Change: Heading to dinner with friends after class? Trade the cardigan for a fitted leather jacket and lose the booties for a pair of fun wedges. Throw on a bold lip and you’re ready to start this semester off in the best way—in style.
