It’s that time again; The weather in that stage where one minute it looks like spring is finally approaching, the next its winter all over again. If your anything like me (and most other college students) trying to still look somewhat presentable in freezing weather is one thing I have trouble doing.

I get it; sometimes it can be hard figuring out what to wear for class. Do you wear something comfy or chic? Do you wear something functional to go to class in and hit the gym afterward? The stress of it all can be difficult to handle, especially here in Colorado, because some days it’s sunny and 60 degrees, and other days it’s 25 degrees and snowing.

A sweater and a good pair of leggings are a college student’s go-to essentials. This Fashionista has it all figured out! She creates the perfect balance of comfy and chic, while still perfectly dressed for a warm Colorado day that could turn into a cool Colorado evening. This Fashionista puts a twist on your average winter sweater by wearing a poncho, a trend that is huge this season.

She accessorizes this look with her oversized Coach purse, which anyone could mimic with a less expensive black tote or purse! Since she wanted to look chic without putting in the extra effort to go to class, this Fashionista finished her look by putting her hair in a sock bun, an effortless yet stylish hair-do.

One Simple Change: To make this look a little more sophisticated for date night, swap out the boots and high socks for your favorite booties.
