Now that everyone is back at school and managed to get through syllabus week, it’s time for classes to get serious and our schedules to get crazy. As someone who has signed up for early classes and later regretted it, I understand how frustrating it is to come up with cute outfits at 7 AM, especially in the winter.
I spotted this Fashionista sporting these super chic snow boots just after D.C.’s latest snowfall. As a Chicago-native I have my fair share of cold weather accessories and these boots are very ideal: the base of the boot is structured and waterproof, tough enough to walk through mass amounts of snow and ice, the inside is layered with UGG’s traditional lining for warmth and the height and lace-up detailing of the boot adds style to the tradition snow shoe.
Seeing as this Fashionista’s boots are quite statement, she accessorized with neutral and embellished accents. The combination of a muted metallic headband paired with the soft grey infinity scarf are easy to throw on and look great with nearly every sweater and jacket. A large tote is a necessity for college, whether it is leather or canvas, and must be able to carry everything from MacBooks and Lilly Agendas to sneakers and yoga mats. This Fashionista opted for a classic canvas Vineyard Vines tote, ideal for all college activities.
No matter what time of day or how busy you are, these basic items are ideal for all college students. When looking for boots that can handle winter weather be sure to assess the type of weather you will be facing. If you are simply facing a little slush here and there rain boots are fine, but be sure to layer with thick socks underneath. These Aigle Jumping boots not only look like leather boots from afar, but they are styled like traditional English riding boots. If you are facing the weather of the East Coast or the Midwest, Belcoud boots from UGG Austrailia can certainly take on task. For some colored and metallic accessories, Deepa Gurnani and Marc Jacobs complement each other well. When it comes to a large tote, I personally gravitate towards very basic and simple colors. Tory Burch has designed the Tory Tote made with canvas, nylon and patent leather — as a current owner myself, this bag’s large size and built-in pockets allow for versatile use and it truly stands the test of time.
No matter rain, shine, snow or sleet, any Fashionista can look absolutely adorable…even if it is just for class.
