I’ve spent some time on a college campus recently and was pretty surprised at what I saw. Nobody wants to be that girl shivering on her way to class because instead of dressing practically, she dressed for style. I’m talking the girl in 3 degree weather ‘sporting a thin VS hoodie, leggings and moccasins – no scarf, no hat, no gloves…NO common sense. We get it – you want to look cute, you never know who you’ll meet! But girl, you just look silly.
There’s a way to join forces with practicality and fashion – without looking like a fool! Here’s a few tips on how to be warm AND stylish. I took this idea straight to a freshman dorm room, raided their closet and came up with great looks for surviving the cold, icy campus.
I paired this great neutral cow neck sweater with a basic long sleeve tee to add an extra layer of warmed. It goes flawlessly with a dark wash skinny and neutral combat boots. I also love this long army green winter jacket. Keeps you warm and fashionable – all at the same time! Who would have thought 😉
I love this look! It’s a fabulous combination of preppy and edgy, with a pop of color in these mustard skinnies. Paired with black combat boots,a leather jacket, a fun – but warm – hat and technology-touch black gloves.
Plum pants -OMG- these jeans are adorable. A tan long sleeve shirt with shoulder lace details go great with a cream infinity scarf. The slim-fitted jean jacket adds another layer of warmth but not bulk and I gotta say, these booties are fantastic for campus life with a small, chunky heel. Throw on your winter coat and you’re ready to battle the cold wind and snow!
Simple layering technique along with a good pair of gloves, a warm scarf and a long winter coat can go along way this winter- getting you out of your dorm, into the classroom then back to your dorm safely.. ensuring your hectic netflix-watching schedule is not disturbed. Just remember, you don’t have to sacrifice cozy for style (P.S. now please don’t be that girl).
Until next time,
For the Love of Fashion,
