Out of some miracle, this week Atlanta saw its first real snow since the “Snowpocalypse” of 2011. While the city might have shut down (the south does not know how to cope with an inch of snow), this meant that school has been out for a few days now. This means sledding, hot cocoa and anything but work, but more importantly, next week, we will all be frantically meeting with our professors to attempt to catch up on the work we missed and the obscene amount of readings we have to catch up on. This Fashionista’s youthful, yet professional, outfit is perfect for the slightly hectic nature of those meetings.
What really caught my eye with this outfit was her plaid dress. Plaid, as I have written earlier, can be scary for some of us Fashionistas – I know it reminds me of my high school uniform – but clearly the risk pays off. Her collared, blue and green dress is simultaneously conservative and young, making it perfect for a casual meeting with that professor you want to make a good impression on in these first few weeks of school. The collar really works to her advantage here to give the simple shift dress a nice, little detail.
Paired with a utilitarian, black down jacket, tights and brown combat boots, her outfit is versatile and won’t be too overdressed for the rest of your day. This dress may be tame, but it is still trendy. You will be sure to dress to impress.
One Simple Change: If it is too cold for just the dress and the jacket, try layering a sweater over the dress and adding a collar tip! The prep school chic look is edged up by the up-and-coming accessory, and the extra layer will keep you warm during snow week!
