Dreary and and chilly weather conditions can put a damper on people’s moods, and, by extension, their outfits. But thank heavens for the south, and the gorgeous sunshine we’ve had lately in Savannah! When I saw Bridget, she looked comfortable and put-together for a day of class. Read on to learn more about her simple and pretty sense of style!

Let’s Talk Fashion
Who or what inspires your style? “I like functional and fashionable. I try to think as if I am a business card. What do I want to say about myself? What do I want people to know about me? I like pops of color, lots of neutrals, and simple and comfortable pieces. I believe that every piece should have a purpose.”
Why did you choose this particular outfit? “I wanted an outfit that was professional and polished. I felt that this particular outfit showed individuality, and I thought it would make an impression.”
What fashion advice would you give to other students looking to improve their style? “Don’t necessarily go straight for comfortable clothes (e.g. sweats), but do choose clothes that make you feel comfortable (e.g. classic jeans). Dress how you feel. If the outfit makes you feel both comfortable and confident, wear it! Also, dress for what fits your body.”
What are your favorite trends right now? “I liked snake patterns this past fall. I always like layering, especially with sheer blouses.”
Do you have any favorite designers? “If I had to pick, I would say Michael Kors.”
If you could raid anyone’s closet, who would it be and why? “I kind of like my own. I know it all fits me, and I’m comfortable in it!”
Elements of Bridget’s Outfit
1. Snake Bracelet
Bridget kept her accessories minimal, allowing the print of her top, the contrast between the neutral colors, and her bright clutch do the talking. However, she did throw in a pop of interest on her wrist. Her bracelet immediately draws in attention, especially when she opens the head of the snake to reveal a watch!
2. Black Leather Boots
Bridget’s shoes are classic, straightforward and to the point – but while they’re very functional, they’re also super stylish. The black leather, zippers, and buckles keep them interesting and eye-catching.
3. Bright Clutch
Finally, Bridget brings the outfit together with her purple clutch; it adds a pop of color that keeps her outfit lively and keeps her from looking too washed out.
