It may be winter and sweaters are in but that doesn’t mean the way you dress has to be boring. My favorite trend from spring/summer has crossed over into winter, the lace up top. As a junior, I’m constantly thinking about how to dress for the job that I want while displaying my personal style.

This Fashionista is a junior as well, majoring in fashion merchandising. When she graduates, she hopes to become a buyer for a prestige fashion company. She also shared with me the struggles of having to commute to school and dressing up for class. But, she finds the perfect balance between business casual and comfort.

While her days are quite long due to classes and club meetings, she pairs her oversize lace up sweater with black dressy ankle leggings together for comfortability. She doesn’t overshadow the details of her sweater by wearing delicate jewelry such as: a thin choker, midi rings, and stud earrings.

Staying warm and stylish during these cold days, she then turns her outfit into business casual with this perfect color blocked trench coat. I love the way she mixed up neutral tones and kept it simple without overdoing it. Her personal style definitely shines through. She topped her outfit off with a pair of simple black chelsea boots for a more polished look. This Fashionista is ready to conquer her next interview in the fashion industry.

It’s the little details that matter and make you stand out from the rest. Next time you get dress try utilizing a trendy statement into your business casual attire.
