While we are busy studying for upcoming midterms, we could all learn a lesson or two from this Fashionista, who teaches us how to stay warm and comfy for class while still managing to look cute and on-trend. This look is a great example of fashion and functionality.

This Fashionista sticks to the basics—a chunky neutral beige cardigan, a cute floral camisole for layering, crisp dark wash jeans and cute yet functional boat shoes. The pop of floral print elevates the look to a level of casual elegance. Because she utilizes staple pieces that most Fashionistas/os already have in their closets, her look is a breeze to recreate.

The layered sweater and camisole combination serves a dual purpose. On one hand, it helps to stay bundled up on those chilly winter walks from class to class. On the other hand, the layering technique gives the look an air of easy sophistication.The shoes are a great choice as well. Flat shoes are easy to walk in, while the navy color gives the overall look a cool color contrast.

My favorite part of the look, however, is how this Fashionista created a personal and unique touch with the combination of casual and dressy pieces. The juxtaposition of the silky camisole and the casual knit sweater breathes new life into jeans and canvas flats.

One Simple Change: Going out with friends tonight? Simply swap the knit sweater for a dressier blazer and switch the flats for heels to create for an instant edgy update, perfect for a night out on the town.
