WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

This end of the semester is full of all nighters, final exams and lots and lots of coffee. Amidst all of the craziness that comes with finals week, fashion often has to take a backseat. It’s hard to make style a priority when your to-do list is a mile long and you’re not sure which way is up. Thankfully, the weekend is the perfect chance to change out of those leggings you’ve been wearing for three days, and remind yourself that you’re still fabulous.

This Fashionista is ready to take a break from her end of the semester stress and have a fun weekend in her striped top and quilted floral skirt from Forever 21. The mixed print trend has been seen in numerous runway shows and is the perfect way to make a bold statement with your outfit. Mixing patterns can be tricky, but this Fashionista was able to pull it off flawlessly. She rocks this trend by choosing to pair a simple black and white stripe with a colorful floral pattern. By keeping the rest of the ensemble fairly simple, the patterns become the main focus.

The leather jacket, fringe necklace and smoky eye add the perfect hint of edge to this otherwise girly ensemble. The black leggings and heeled booties keep the look streamlined and sophisticated. This Fashionista pulled her hair into a sock bun, which is a quick and easy way to create a sleek hairstyle for a girl on the go.

One Simple Change: To create a more casual look  for a day of brunch, pair the skirt and shirt combo with black combat boots and a cardigan.
