TREND: Bright Color Shine

In Eugene lately the weather has been odd getting as low as 38 degrees F at night and 60 plus degrees during the day. Today's CollegeFashionista was spotted pulling out her  best winter attire out—boots, scarf, coat, hat and gloves to keep warm during the unpredictable weather we have been experiencing. 

This Fashionista's look is perfect for a girl who loves to accessorize but doesn’t want to fuss about her clothes. By keeping her clothing neutral with a black sweater and grey top, any accessories added to this look really stand out.

Today's Fashionista was sensible and investing in a standard black sweater that will come in handy all season long. Try this Uniqlo's Merino Cashmeree V Neck Cardigan A if your looking to be trendsetting but on a budget.

And finally her footwear. This Fashionista's little dark brown ballet flats might be a bit summery for the winter, but a way to convert them to be seasonally appropriate (or at least until it snows) is throwing on a pair of chunky wool tights or opaque tights to keep your bare skin covered. 

Hint: Winter can bring it's challenges with weather and the obstacles we all face trying to get to class in the cold. But if you're like me, take the weather and turn it into a project. Make it a way to show your ability to extend the life of your wardrobe and to make summer and fall pieces work with your winter wardrobe.
