CollegeFashionista X Steve Brings It Holiday Advertorial: The Polished Fashionista

Today's feature showcases a more polished tailgating look with Steve Madden's Troopa Flat Lace Up Bootie. Unlike the School Spirited Fashionista look I showcased earlier this week, this look focuses more on taking fashion pieces into your tailgate wear. Pairing your favorite chunky sweaters with wool shorts allow you to stay warm in a less conventional way.

Of course, maintaining pride for your campus is important when tailgating, so I chose to wear a red hue ensemble (modeling my alma mater IU) to incorporate some of my winter favorite pieces as well as my school colors. The accent of the red worked seamlessly with the bold camel hue of my Steve Madden cognac boots to bring about pride for my team and love for fall.

The best tailgates start and end with the ultimate playlist. In conjunction with CollegeFashionista's Steve Brings It Holiday Campaign, I have put together a mix of songs that are definitely Fashionista worthy. You're welcome. So, while jamming to your trusty playlist compliments of me, now you swanky sartorialists can have inspiration to model your attire off of. Think boots, chunky knits and your school colors to imitate today's outfit!

How To: To imitate today's look think staples like a chunky sweater and wool shorts. If the weather won't allow for you to wear shorts go for a wool ankle trouser. Keep a polished look by opting for a monochromatic ensemble and throw on a pair of cognac boots like these from Steve Madden
