WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

When I think of college coffee shops, I think of moody teens wearing black berets and snapping fingers at poetry readings. A bit dramatic? Probably. However, these days coffee is everyone’s nirvana. This means that a head-to-toe black ensemble is no longer the requirement for getting through the door.

The Fashionista photographed here has a modern and sunny take on the coffee shop uniform. The weekend is for relaxing and this Fashionista’s outfit is great for heading to the coffee shop without looking like the color black dominated her entire look. She wore a black tank with a pink, embroidered design, as well as comfy, heather gray jeggings. The black tank shows off just the right amount of skin, but is not overly revealing. The fit of the jeggings is near perfect. Her nude flats save the outfit from workout to weekend. They add a sweet and polished touch, something those coffee heads can’t deny. The caramel, GUESS cross-body bag matches the shoes, which once again insures that the style decisions are intentional. This look will surely repel sneers from your peers.

Follow in the footsteps of this Fashionista and you are sure to ruffle some feathers and catch some eyes. After all, isn’t that what college is about? To explore the edges of your ideals and beliefs.

One Simple Change: If you swap the jeggings for denim jeans, then you’ve got yourself an outfit suitable for the night out with friends. Maybe even some friends you made at the coffee shop!
