With the end of the semester fast approaching and those dreaded finals creeping up on us, it’s no wonder why students just want to keep it causal around campus while we’re on the go. I don’t know about you, but when I have to make it to an 8:00 a.m. class, I barely have enough time to put together a super fabulous outfit with all the bells and whistles. Keeping it casual and effortless, this Fashionista shows us how easy it is to look stylish by choosing basic wardrobe pieces that most of us own and can recreate.

This Fashionista is wearing a basic white T-shirt underneath a killer leather jacket, which is the perfect outerwear piece when transitioning from the winter to the spring season. A pair of black jeans adds to the monochromatic colour scheme, and this Fashionista stays on trend by rocking the knee slash detail we’ve been seeing in fashion a lot lately; This adds an edgy and subtle detail to keep the outfit more interesting. With all the walking we do downtown Toronto, a pair of sneakers is a must for comfort; I love how these adidas sneakers add a sporty element to the look. Lastly, a black leather cross body bag is perfect for a student on the go. This outfit is the prime example of effortless street style by taking wardrobe basics and pairing them together; It creates an outfit that is so cool for school.

One Simple Change: To take this look from day to night, switch out the sneakers for a pair of heels and add a blouse instead of the T-shirt. Now you’re ready for a much needed dinner out with your girlfriends!
