TREND: Hipster Chic

The semester is quickly coming to an end, which means that classes are wrapping up and dreadful finals week will be here in the blink of an eye. However, just because the load of coursework is dwindling down, does not mean your noteworthy ensembles have to go down with it. Whether you are studying all day or just relaxing with friends, it doesn't mean you should wear sweats or what you slept in last night around campus. Maintaining style can be effortless and minimal with the right style combination. For finals week, try to incorporate simplicity but remember to mixing in edgier pieces to give a casual yet unique look every time.

I found this Fashionista spending her last few weeks of the fall semester in the Herman B. Wells Library stopping for a coffee break. Her outfit is the epitome of easy, effortless style. For example, the top she is wearing is an updated version of the black T-shirt. What makes this shirt more appealing are the sequin appliqués on the shoulders and the unique cropped length in the front. Get a similar style with this chain tee from Topshop. Instead of pairing her top with blue denim, choosing a grey distressed jean allowed her rocker edge to shine through. To maintain a simple look try not to over-do the accessories. Try a similar rhinestone bracelet or bib necklace to polish off your look.

Hint: Wearing updated styles of classic pieces are always ways to improve your wardrobe with minimal efforts. To get a similar cropped T-shirt like this Fashionista, find a longer looser fit tee and crop it yourself by cutting to a length you deem appropriate. You will get the same look just at a better price!

TREND: Hipster Chic

This fashionable couple was spotted headed into the Rock the Runway event last Friday night. This Fashionista and Fashionisto are exuding flawless hipster chic, using vintage garments and accessories paired together in a modern way. The Fashionisto on the left is wearing black low rise denim skinny jeans, cuffed over his black street shoes. This fabulous western inspired turquoise accented belt serves as the focal point of the look, with the light colored tee and jacket pulling everything together in an effortless way.

The Fashionista on the right is sporting baggy high waisted khaki pants, belted with a flawless leather square buckle belt, paired with a sheer powder blue blouse that is all the rage for this spring. The turquoise in her neck scarf complements the powder blue impeccably, and her leather bomber jacket is to die for. Her vintage skinny strap shoulder bag is the ultimate hipster accessory. She rounds it off with a pair of flats, however, for a dressier look, you could definitely rock this outfit with some high heels!

Hint: For the ultimate in vintage garments and accessories, check out Nasty Gal.

Style On,
