Robert Morris is commonly known as a convenient commuter college, meaning that lots of students live off campus, trekking to class via various forms of transportation. They’ve got planes and trains and cars, I’d walk to you if I had no other way (said every student when they find out perfect attendance gets you excused from a final). Being able to get ready quickly is a feat not easily accomplished, but one that becomes mastered through use of neutrals. Pair any neutrals together and you have a complete outfit. Navy, khaki, beige, white, black, gray, brown; any of these colors can easily be combined for a simple outfit perfect for class, especially if the pieces are comfortable.
This Fashionista pairs multiple staples together to get a fashionable, yet functional outfit. Taking simple black leggings and pairing them with a beige cowl neck sweater, she is left to accessorize. (Fun fact, she actually informed me that this sweater used to be a dress that accidentally shrunk in the wash!) The cowl neck of the sweater acts almost as an accessory in itself, draping around the neck in a scarf-like way. The Fashionista added a plain banded rose gold ring. She also threw on her thick rimmed glasses, which work well for her major in graphic design, preventing her eyes from drying out while looking at computer monitors for hours on end. Finally, this Fashionista completed her look with a pair of studded ankle booties that add a little bit of edge to her otherwise simple outfit.
You can’t go wrong with neutrals and comfortable clothing, as this Fashionista clearly shows. None of the pieces clash, and many pieces multitask as both essentials and accessories, such as the glasses.
