The chill has arrived. Pull out your warm sweaters and winter jackets because the post-Halloween cold front is moving in on the Northeast. As the temperature drops, though, I am seeing more and more fabulous printed and patterned sweaters. Animal prints, stripes, polka dots and other eclectic patterns can liven up potentially mundane, monotonous outfits and can be easily complemented with some simple accessories.
This Fashionista embellishes her brown boots, leggings and white T-shirt with a tribal knit, overlay sweater—a great way to break up an otherwise color blocked ensemble. Additionally she adds a layered gold charm necklace for an extra touch of femininity. Her well pulled-together, yet relaxed look is perfect for either a day on campus or in the city.
To accomplish a style similar to this CollegeFashionista, combine a comfortable pair of leggings or jeans, tall boots and a fun sweater, like an embroidered oversized pullover or lace-up pullover from Free People. Also, for layering options, throw this grandpa cardigan or Alpaca blend, button-down sweater from Mara Hoffman over any solid colored T-shirt. To add even more dimension like this Fashionista, find a fun, simple accessory to supplement the look. The online boutique, Ruche, has many eye-catching statement necklaces, such as this Pink Moonrise necklace or the Tiered Elegance necklace.
The accessories you choose and the prints that strike you are what make this look malleable to every Fashionista’s personal style. Remember, what is most important as a CollegeFashionista or Fashionisto is creating outfits that make you feel comfortable and confident.
