STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Walk-of-Shame Chic

At college, most people are challenged by new experiences that force them to leave their comfort zone. Some have difficulty learning how to do their own laundry, others have trouble cooking for themselves, but one part of college that is particularly hard to master is the ability to make an outfit from last night look cute the next morning. Items such as mini bandage skirts are such an intricate aspect to your evening outfit that it's hard to find a good way to translate them into daytime wear. 

I ran into this Fashionista on a Sunday afternoon after the official comeback of Josephine Saturdays. Although she looked exhausted, she still looked effortlessly chic. Her black BCBG bandage skirt was the focal point of her ensemble; leftover from last night, she had decided to throw it back on. She noted that she had previously paired this mini with a tank tucked in, so for daytime, she chose to wear a loose chambray button-down made by Lark and Wolff. To offset the tight skirt in this fall weather, she wore a pair of leather biker boots by Steve Madden, which matched the skirt and made it appear more casual at the same time. For accessories, she layered a black infinity scarf from Nordstrom that kept her warm in the crisp, fall weather. She had originally borrowed her roommate’s Tory Burch clutch to use last night, but its gold chain and black leather ended up matching her outfit perfectly too! Lastly, her sunglasses by Michael Kors weren’t just an accessory, but a necessity for the bright sun.

It is easy to wear pieces one would usually reserve for nighttime during the day. Shadow Room may have closed, but there is still a window of opportunity for a black bandage skirt anytime.
