CollegeFashionista X Ann Taylor Advertorial: Day to Night-GWU

Slogans say it all: Something happens here. As a George Washington University student, you are expected to embody this mantra inside and outside the classroom. And when changing the world in big ways, any Fashionista knows you have to dress the part. That’s why I am so excited for the CollegeFashionista and Ann Taylor collaboration. As the contemporary closet for the ultimate versatile Fashionista, Ann Taylor offers the perfect apparel for a girl who is savvy in the office and stylish out on the town. Between my business classes, internship, and a busy spring social calendar, its great to know I can rock a great day-to-night look with minimal hassle!

For a chic daytime look I can wear from my classes to my internship, I chose to wear sizzling hot, chili pepper-red Curvy Denim Skinny Jeans with a Ribbed Mock Neck Sweater. Both pieces are great because they look structured and put together for the workplace while still being comfortable enough to wear when studying in the library or lounging in Starbucks for a coffee break. The oatmeal hue of the sweater and fiery red of the pants are also two of the season’s hottest colors, making the garments must haves! The Large Tassel Tote is a perfect hybrid. It can work as a school bag for carrying around pencils and notebooks and a polished handbag for running errands around the district. And of course no winter outfit is complete without a sleek pair of Petra Buckled Booties. Comfortable yet chic, these booties are a perfect shoe for grabbing lunch, heading to class, or just walking around campus on a brisk January day.

10 seconds of a wardrobe change can transform this outfit from daytime chic to nighttime fabulous. I swapped the sweater for a Satin 3/4 Sleeve Top and layered it with a Compact Doubleweave Trench Jacket. The jacket complements my Petra Buckled Booties and pulls together all of the other pieces to make it a statement look. To add a bit more glamour, I threw on a Geometric Stone Statement Necklace that quickly dresses up the Satin 3/4 Sleeve Top, making the entire ensemble perfect for going out with my friends. The Curvy Denim Skinny Pants transitioned flawlessly from day to night acting as a comfort piece for daywear and as a sexier item for the evening.

Now for all you Fashionistas who didn't think taking a look from day to night was possible, I proved you wrong! Find inspiration in my wardrobe for your own unique morning to night ensemble.

CollegeFashionista X Ann Taylor Advertorial: Day to Night

As college students it sometimes can be hard to find time to balance everything in your life. Between classes, internships, jobs and studying, being fashionable can easily get tossed aside. The result? You end up either (a) being inappropriately dressed for one or more occasion or (b) having a plethora of clothes in the backseat of your car as a makeshift closet-on-the-go. And while the latter allows for options, it also opens you up to comments from your friends who have to sit in between a lone stiletto, a pair of yoga pants, and a blazer.

To simplify this process, we have teamed up with Ann Taylor to showcase how to make minor tweaks in your wardrobe from afternoon to evening so that being chic is simpler than ever.
