Whether you spend your Thursday nights at Rick’s or Studio, this is definitely a look to save. Mini dresses and heels have always been obvious choices, but adding in two trends(the cut out back and fringe detail) make the outfit look fresh. Black is the key here: the neutral palette is both slimming and simple, so the look is casually sexy without being over the top.

Hint: The best part about this outfit? The price tag! The dress is just $42 from American Apparel, leaving extra money for Cheesy bread (with marinara AND ranch of course.)

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Kicking it into HIGH gear

While sifting through magazines and doing my usual fashion reading, I continuously come across celebrities, fashion icons and trend watches reporting on the knee high boot style for fall. Initially, I despised this look but the more and more I see it I am falling in love with it. Now trust me, I understand the difficulty of wearing such an item when out at bar on a college campus but honestly why not? I think everyone needs to dare to be a little different this school season and wear things outside your typical comfort zone. Don’t go spend your entire intern salary on these statement boots, but there a plenty of reasonably priced knee highs that will be a fun addition to your current collection. Wear this look with a standard white shirt dress you already own and black tights to really give off that biker feel!

ALL IN THE DETAILS: Sweatin’ Things Up In Style

It is obvious that being fashionable does not have to be uncomfortable with current street styles that every girl loves, like yoga pants. Now with fashion powerhouse brands such as adidas, Stella McCartney and Topshop debuting their recent collaborations, it’s obvious that fashion sweats are at a all-time high right now. Every girl loves a yoga pant and now it can look sleek and chic. Dressing for an occasion can now be comfortable and easy with this sporty look.

If you are similar to me, then you are a student juggling multiple classes, internships and probably a part-time job while trying to maintaining an appropriate office style. This means you are probably on the go 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can see celebrities, such as Cara Delevingne to Rihanna, taking these looks from this the runways and bringing them onto the sidewalks. When it comes to fashion and music, they always seem to influence each other in different ways, such as the hip-hop genre. This sporty and comfortable, but sleek style can easily be transitioned into menswear. I spotted this Fashionisto the other day when he was on the way form his job to his internship. His look is effortless and easy while being stylish and work appropriate at the same time.

How To: This look is a very chic and easy to recreate and make your own. I would start off by picking out a really great slim banded cuffed sweats from vince and throw in a pair of Nike Roshe Run sneakers. When it comes to your undershirt, keep it simple with this great basic from Topman and layer it with this quality leather jacket from AllSaints. The Jasper sunglasses from Warby Parker paired with the bleecker leather shopper from Coach that is a look that will leave people staring.
