WHAT TO WEAR: Subtle Statements

The time has come my friends—to get back into the hustle and bustle of college life. Whether we are psyched about classes starting again or wishing we had just a little bit more time to get coffee with friends and family back home, it is important to get into the swing of things and make the most of a new semester! Walking through campus in the winter months can be brutal sometimes, and figuring out what to wear a bit more challenging for some. Thankfully, oversize items are in trend and blanket scarves are in full force this year.

I, for one, am so extremely happy that oversize scarves are a trend. I mean, who doesn’t want a soft, warm, huge scarf to wrap themselves up in on their way to class? That’s what I thought, no one. They add a bit of something extra to the outer layers of clothing you put on as you try not to freeze to death. The amount of outfits you can spice up, just by accessorizing with a scarf, is endless. Adding it to a leather jacket can create a sweet contradiction of soft and edgy in one outfit. I love how it creates a complex story of the Fashionista wearing it.

Leather jackets are a classic piece of clothing that will never go out of style. The right jacket will mold to your body and create the perfect fit. They will last a lifetime and protect you from the cold, and maybe even from a few scrapes if you ever find yourself fallen to the ground. As for accessories, I really appreciate delicate jewelry. A twinge of gold can add a bit of a classic flare to an outfit. Throw on some fashionable sneakers, and walking through the harsh cold will seem like summer stroll. Well, maybe not a summer stroll, but it will definitely be a lot more bearable.
