After some extensive runway research this summer for the coming fall trends, I have been anticipating a maxi skirt come back for the fall and winter. I’ve spotted some ultra trendy dare-devils darting to class looking warm and fashion-forward, even though I believe most of them are Apparel or Retail Majors. Hopefully the rest of the campus will notice the trend as well and jump on the band wagon for some comfy and chic winter outfits in the coming months.
Comfy Chic Expert and Fashion-forward Dare Devil: Helen Stieve, Apparel Design Student
Maxi Skirt: Vintage Store in Baraboo Wisconsin for $15
Striped Shirt: H&M pack of 2 with a grey one for $5
Blazer: Vintage Linen, given as a gift
Necklace: Sea Shell, Vintage store in Menomonie Wisconsin
Boots: She studded them herself!! The boots were from Target for $20
This comfort chic fashionista admits her favorite cold weather staple item is hands-down a fitted flannel, and has a well-worn multicolored collection herself to prepare for the frost ridden months ahead. However, her most trusted winter accessory is over the knee socks.
…they look great with boots and jeans or leggings, and if you find patterned ones they can add a little flair to any outfit!
So, while jotting down ideas for those Christmas lists, keep the coming winter in mind and opt for clothes that closely intertwine function AND fashion!
