WHAT TO WEAR: Casual Weekend Downtown

March 16th, 2017 at 2:00am

It’s that time of the semester where work is really starting to pile up, and it just seems like we can never catch a break from the constant stress. When this happens, it is important to budget your time wisely so you can engage in some self-love activities, such as shopping downtown with your friends on the weekends. Kent, Ohio is a great college town with tons of fun restaurants, cafés, and shops so walking around and just hanging out offers a great break from campus life. This Fashionista had the right idea to style a casual and cozy look, perfect for a fun study break downtown.

She started off with a basic thermal T-shirt in a neutral color, similar to this oversize thermal top from Urban Outfitters. She paired that with plain black leggings, a staple piece for all seasons offering both comfort and warmth. She then added warmer layers on top of that for the windy winters we have here. A green military style jacket is one of my favorite go-to pieces for when I want to look like I’m trying, without really trying that hard. This Free People military jacket is similar, with an added tribal print trim. To accessorize she chose an oversize plaid scarf, and some cute duck booties by Sperry, which come in enough colorways to match any outfit. This casual look is perfect for hitting the town between homework binges, is easy to recreate from some staple pieces that you probably already own, and is going to be the inspiration for my outfits for the rest of the season!

    Hi! I'm from the chilly but beautiful Portland, Maine, and am currently studying fashion design at Kent State University. Some of my favorite things are wool sweaters, art, poetry, traveling, and cuddling with my Maine Coon Cat, Bruno. I am so excited to be a part of this team for 2017 and can't wait to connect with tons of new people!
