Here we are, another month later, and I’m still talking about denim jackets and my undying love for them. Walking to class during the early spring months can cause major clothing confusion, when you start the day at a mere 40 degrees and by lunchtime it’s 55 and you’re sweating. Layers become your best friend. I’m not saying you have to pack on every shirt you’ve ever owned, but it wouldn’t hurt to wear something that could save your life when Iowa weather decides to hail during your lunch break.

By taking a lightweight sweater and layering it over a halter top you can combat any type of weather while keeping it fun and eclectic underneath. The vintage jean jacket can give you cozy vibes while you’re taking notes in class, but can keep you warm on the walk to your 8:00 a.m. class. If you’re a college student then you probably own Converse: they are an easy throw-on for a long walk around campus or if you’ve decided to retire the yoga pants for a day. These high-waisted jeans add a little bit of color to the neutral look. To add some texture to your look, throw on your favorite jewelry collected from neighborhood shops.

Like I said before, layers can be your friends when you wear them the right way. And by adding your own practical pieces you can take this look anywhere.

One Simple Change: To take this look from class to tailgate next semester and shed your sweater for your school’s jersey. The halter top underneath will add a feminine vibe to your look. Tie the vintage jean jacket around your waist and you’re ready for a day full of football.
