Congratulations Fashionistas and Fashionistos – we have stylishly completed the first month of the school year. By now you are settled into your dorm room and you are used to your classes; your daily routine is set in stone and it’s getting kind of monotonous. However, your denim doesn’t have to be.
This Fashionista does denim right: dark and skinny on bottom, light and tailored on top. This two-tone denim look is casual and current, combined with an oversized plaid scarf and lace-up leather boots. Mixing and matching jean items of differing hues is an easy way to look chic this fall. Want to be comfortable, yet cute for class? Opt for a denim button-down with jeggings, paired with oxford flats. You could even pop a cute Boston University T-shirt under your button-down to show some school spirit. Searching for a sleeker ensemble? Find a denim military-inspired blazer to go with a great pair of denim trousers and your favorite wedges for a jean look du jour.
To ensure that your attire is modern and fresh, make sure that you don’t don the same shade of denim head-to-toe. Nothing screams 90's-soccer-mom like faded jeans coordinated with a denim jacket done in the same tone – contrasting light and saturated denim is key. As for accesories? Go all out – jeans are basic enough that they can handle lots of add-ons: think statement jewelry made of varying precious metals, retro fedoras and anything red to show your Terrier cheer.
Next time you’re feeling bored and blue, pile on the denim for a look that’s far from blasé.
