How often do we find ourselves rolling out of bed 20 minutes before our morning classes? How many times do we hit snooze before finally deciding to get up? Hitting the snooze button and sleeping an extra 20 minutes can often result in throwing on a pair of sweatpants and a T-shirt. Well, I’m here to challenge Fashionistas everywhere to set your alarms 20 minutes early! Giving yourself an extra 20 minutes in the morning can do miracles for your day, and also your style. This seemingly small block of time can actually be the perfect amount to pick out a great outfit for the school day.
This bright and happy Fashionista obviously wasted no time in preparing her outfit for a day on campus. Wearing a white cotton top with lace accents and a pair of high-waisted, red culottes, this Fashionista is truly ready for class. Culottes are a fashion item that have really come back into style recently. Once thought of as 'mom shorts,' this high-waisted pair is far from old-fashioned. She accessorized with a pair of two-toned oxford flats and a black canvas messenger bag that complete the look as a whole. One of the main focuses in this trend is the color palette. Sticking with neutrals of black and white is always a safe and viable option. However, adding a pop of color like red can really make an outfit stand out. While this Fashionista looks great and more than “put together,” her style appears effortless and probably took only a short amount of time to prepare.
So the next time your alarm goes off, listen to it. Wake up, be happy, and show off your style!
Hint: To replicate this Fashionista’s simplistic look, try matching a pair of scallop shorts with a basic cotton top. A pair of oxford flats and a canvas messenger bag will complete your look, just as these accessories did for her.
