The definition of our generation: trying to find comfort in fashion. College students are stereotypically guilty of going for comfort versus style, but why choose?
This Fashionista embodies the comfortable-chic ensemble which the scarf and cardigan combo allows. The oversized gray sweater is as comfortable as your old ratty high school sweats, but classy enough to wear downtown or to a business interview. The beige scarf adds not only a layer of warmth from the harsh Chicago wind, but brings together the color palette of the entire outfit.
The combo can be applied to all facets of life, from wearing it to class with a pair of skinny jeans, or out to dinner by throwing on a pencil skirt. Not to mention the wide range of colors and textures are applicable to all styles and wardrobe.
Chains such as J.Crew, Nordstrom, and Macy's carry options which are not only affordable but great quality pieces that would be a great addition to any Fashionista's closet.
Hint: So when looking to spice up your wardrobe and beat out the bipolar weather of the Windy City, go for the cardigans and scarves.
