STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Channel Old School Outerwear

These days it seems like the easiest way to get fashion inspiration is to look at fashion trends of the past. Fashionistas at BU have been seen in seventies-inspired wide-leg jeans and eighties era vintage jackets. As we continue to wait for spring to come, Fashionistas are looking for even more style inspiration that will look trendy and withstand the rain. With that said, now is a great time to channel the nineties and throw a denim jacket on over your outfit.

This Fashionista looks downtown trendy in her denim jacket and striped dress. The mix of styles and layering gives the piece a modern spin. Her black tights, hunter green hoody and black boots not only make the outfit rainy day appropriate, but they also show just how versatile a denim jacket can be. Hers also has a classic cut and medium wash that can be worn with almost any outfit imaginable.

To channel the nineties vibe like our Fashionista, try wearing a basic denim jacket with any outfit. You can also play with color and choose a light wash denim jacket, a la Saved By the Bell, or a dark wash denim for a more sophisticated look. For a more stylized and edgy choice, get a denim jacket with studded detailing. Any of these options can easily be thrown on with a dress and tights (like our Fashionista proves) or a skirt and tank for a great spring outfit.
