When coffee cups become our new accessory we know school is back in session! However, this week's Fashionista proves that you can still be fashionable while in the 'back to school slump.' I found this week’s Fashionista right outside of a coffee shop on her way to class, “I need coffee to get me through the day; This outfit is what I call comfortable chic for the first week of class,” says this fashionista! This week’s Fashionista looks like she walked right off the Ralph Lauren runway; With a polo button up layered under a crisp winter white sweater and brown riding boots, this look reads prep all over! The piece that completes the look, in my opinion, is the puffy yet flattering navy fur trimmed vest. The vest has very preppy elements and detailing making a winter puffer much more than…well, a winter puffer!

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style in three words?

Alexa Esposito: Preppy, Classic, eclectic.

CF: What is your favorite trend right now??

AE: Definitely the riding look! Wearing a classic button up with riding boots, very Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger. I think it makes any girl look classy and elegant while still looking stylish.

CF: What is your favorite season to dress for?

AE: Without a doubt, Winter.  I love winter clothes because you can layer and show off various styles all at once. Also, I think the quality of winter clothes is much nicer than clothes from other seasons.

How To:  This look is much simpler to recreate than it may seem! Simply wear a pair of beige riding pants with a button up layered under a sweater and/or vest. The brown riding boots really complete this preppy look.This look is one you can play with and have a lot of fun with!  If you prefer a more chic look and less preppy you can layer a simple sweater with a fur vest and black boots!
