WHAT TO WEAR: In Like Blair, Out Like a Senator

Does anyone else remember that old saying about the month of March: “In like a lion, out like a lamb?” That’s basically the best way to describe the weather here at Ohio University. While some girls recycle the same pair of spandex for days, maybe weeks, at a time, this Fashionista uses the weird weather as her opportunity to showcase her style, Blair Waldorf meets future senator.

To conquer campus, you have to start with a posh coat. This Fashionista makes a statement with an adorable cape-like coat in a beautiful burgundy shade. It is stylish while still keeping her toasty warm. The fit is not too overwhelming, being a perfect length and density for her petite frame.

Under her coat, she has on a form-fitting sweater. The cut complements her figure while being ultra cute with a sassy neckline. The buttons on her collar embellish the sweater without being gaudy and tie in the jacket even more. Her skirt is something that Blair Waldorf would kill for. The classic A-line is professional and grown up, and the plaid makes it perfect for the winter that is happening in the middle of March. The pattern is not gaudy or flashy but nicely accentuates the outfit overall.

Her shoes are possibly my favorite aspect of her outfit. The slingback, kitten heel is absolutely adorable. The bow adds a touch of femininity, perfect for going from debates on the senate floor to shopping in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The shiny black makes them a statement piece without overdoing it, and the heel is the perfect height for walking to and from classes. Paired with tights, these cute little shoes are the best accessory for a busy college student.

Her makeup is natural, nothing showy at all. The fresh face gives her a splash of youth. The peach tone on her lips brings out a rosy innocence, perfect for getting a bill passed by Congress. She has simple pearl studs for earrings, a classic that makes the best statement. Her watch and bracelets are understated, letting her beauty shine.

School can be stressful, and putting off looking nice is probably one of the easiest things to do. This Fashionista uses Blair Waldorf as an inspiration to make each day hers through an impeccable wardrobe which, when she runs for student senate, will slay the debate floor.
