WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

During the week, students are bombarded with a myriad of chaotic tasks. We fall into a monotonous schedule and forget to add in perks for our own enjoyment. The weekend is our time to let loose and do the things we love. For this Fashionista, that means spending time outdoors.

This Fashionista knows that fashion never takes a break, not even for a hike. She has found a way to dress comfortably and stylish while embracing the wilderness. She opted for a yellow and navy flannel tied around her waist. This trend has become extremely popular in recent times and can be seen on celebrities like Beyoncé and Pharrell. The yellow and navy plaid shirt plays to the colors of spring, bright and airy. Around her neck hangs a charm with meaning. She chose to showcase her spirit animal, a wolf, with a killer gold chain. Adding small details, like her necklace, add personality and shine to a look. On her feet, she wore a pair of black lace up boots. These versatile shoes are perfect for trekking through the woods, hanging out at a park or strolling through the mall with friends. I liked that she swapped out traditional black laces for a pair of stripped red ones. It gave her outfit an unconventional pop of color.

Look to your interests for outfit inspiration when the weekend rolls around. Merging style and functionality is essential for optimal satisfaction when doing the things you love. You’ve made it through the week and you deserve an escape! In the wise words of R Kelly, “It’s the freakin’ weekend baby, I’m about to have me some fun.”

One Simple Change: As the sun begins to set on your late afternoon hike, your friends decide to dance the night away for a girl’s night out. Swap out the flannel for a vegan leather jacket, and tie your hair in a top knot for an edgier nighttime look.
