When I was younger (and by younger I mean two years ago), I did not see the appeal of the Olsen twins’ style. All black everything? My high school self cringed at the very idea. However, as I type, I am clad in a black crop top, black skater skirt, fur coat and surprise, black fedora. Sans my coat, I am a soot-shaded style maven.

To my readers, I have to admit that this is not a once in a blue moon occurrence. If you were to open my closet, black coats, dark leather pants and black shoes would welcome you, which I am notorious for sporting together. Am I mourning? No, but black offers me a sense of confidence and elegance that surmounts any other color. This makes black ensembles the perfect solution to those mornings when I am in shambles over what to wear to class.

These two Fashionistas show us how to rock black on black on black during the school week. After a long day at Emory’s Goizueta Business School, these students still looked vibrant. A moto jacket with leggings or a simple dress with platform boots provide comfort in the classroom, and these ensembles are a simple solution to the Fashionista who wants to sport a chic outfit in seconds. After all, getting to class on time and in style sounds like the perfect start of the day for all of us.

One Simple Change: If you plan on attending a concert after Friday classes, exchange your moto jacket or cardigan for a fur coat like this. Miley Cyrus once sang, “I might even be a rock star.” Yes, yes you are; now you can dress the part.
