I think it’s safe to say that during the school year, staying comfortable is a shared goal of many Fashionistas and Fashionistos. Now, I don’t mean throwing on a pair of stretchy pants and a sweatshirt (although I’m sure that is quite comfortable), but I mean wearing clothes that aren’t too constrictive and allow you to sit comfortably in a classroom chair for two hours. Today’s Fashionista is sporting a perfect laid back look for a day of classes. She keeps her look pretty simple with some chic drawstring pants, a white top, an oversized black bag and an adorable pair of black and brown sandals. She vamps up her look with an awesome statement necklace that adds the perfect touch to her casual-chic outfit.
