Classic never goes out of style. As a college student, I think that it is important to invest in quality pieces that can be worn for years. Fast fashion is great, and as a fashion student, I spend quite a good amount of money at those stores. But, when purchasing a key piece for your closet, I think it is important to invest and make it classic.

This Fashionista does classic perfectly. She starts off the outfit with a key staple of every classic wardrobe—a navy and white striped boat sweater. Jackie Kennedy Onassis would give her nod of approval to this sweater. Underneath the sweater, you can sneak a peek of a denim blue button-down. For the perfect finishing touch, this Fashionista pairs the sweater and button-down with a trench coat. A trench coat will never go out of style. For pants, she decided to keep it simple with a pair of dark wash jeans. To finish off the outfit, she paired it with a pair of classic, black riding boots.

This outfit is perfect for a quick trip into the city. We all live so close to Washington D.C., and this outfit is perfect for walking around the city or exploring museums. It just so happened that on this day it was terribly dreary outside; this was the perfect outfit for the sluggish weather. Weather like this is terrible for a student’s motivation, especially with finals coming up. This Fashionista stood out and conquered with the help of this classic and put together look.
