The holiday season is upon us. For those of us in the states, today kicks off the last minute prep for Thanksgiving. As you turn in your last few assignments, say goodbye to your besties and make the trek home, there is one very important thing to keep in mind: what to wear! For many of you, this will be the first time you have seen your family and friends from home since summer. Show that you learned a thing or two this semester about fashion by following in the footsteps of this Fashionista.
A real key to dressing well is to make sure your outfit doesn’t look overthought yet still pulled together. A tricky balance, I know. But this Fashionista pulls it off with ease. Start with a great pair of leggings. Leather leggings are huge this season and are a great day to night piece. Wear them with a pair of black leather booties to streamline your look and make your legs appear model long.
To really take the look up a notch, opt for a colored shearling coat. Shearling is a quintessential cold weather material. There is something so cozy yet chic about it. And while shearling has always been in the fashion stratosphere, this Fashionista’s oxblood version is right on trend. While her coat is from Acne (and will cost you a pretty penny), many of our favorite retailers have budget friendly and CollegeFashionista approved options. This option from Urban Outfitters mixes the military and shearling trends into one super awesome coat. This one by MINKPINK is great for black Friday shopping or running errands with friends. This shearling sweater from ASOS is a perfect option to wear to your family get togethers or curled up next to the fire.
Here’s to a week of family, festivities and fantastic fashion!
