What To Wear: Library

Leather is the ultimate transition fabric, making the wardrobe overhaul from the harsh winter to the cheery spring much easier. It is sexy, flirty, comfortable and a staple all at once. Considering that the beginning of spring also coincides with midterm week, leather is a fairly safe way to stay on trend, and in focus at the library.

This Fashionista doesn’t do anything the half way; she is wearing leather in every facet of her outfit. At first glance, she is wearing a simple white T-shirt with a blush pink scarf and high waisted jeans, but it is her accessories that are eye catching. She is wearing a leather accented jacket, knee-high boots in the same fabric and a patent leather hand bag. However, it is the balance between fabrics and colors that tie this together. The blush and pastel hues mesh perfectly with the dark leather to create an ensemble that is chic, cozy and appropriate for a date with the books.

Leather used to have too sexy or too biker related connotations, but has become an important part of every city girl’s wardrobe. Leather shorts like these can add an element of tough to an otherwise girly look, while a dress like this can be the perfect new LBD. For days wear sweatpants may feel like the only appropriate garb for a study session, these can be the perfect compromise.

One Simple Change: After a grueling week of midterms, countless cups of coffee and falling asleep too many times in the library; a girl’s night out is the only cure. Swapping the boots for a pair of stilettos and a T-shirt for a slinky top should do the trick.
