I ran into Courtney in the lobby of one of the apartments on campus and immediately fell in love with her look. It was simple yet chic, which is what every college girl should go for when dressing for class. I even loved that she was braving the winter chill with cropped pants and short sleeves (of course, she was indoors)! Who said spring wouldn’t come early this year?

Elements of Courtney’s Outfit
1. Cropped Pants
Courtney’s pants are awesome because they make her look stand out. Even though she is wearing mostly black, your eyes are immediately drawn to her because the pants add edge to her ensemble.
I love that Courtney is wearing booties, proving that heels aren’t just for a night out! There is nothing wrong with a little height in your 10 a.m. marketing class – why not experiment and have fun with fashion?
Looks Inspired by Courtney
Here is a perfect way to get Courtney’s look. These pants have a bow instead of belt loops, which will make your look a bit more girly than what Courtney was going for.
If you would like more of a casual look, but don’t know where to start, fear not! Boyfriend jeans are perfect when rolled up and thrown together with a cute tee and booties! Add a braided belt and some easy accessories and your look will seem perfectly effortless.
If you don’t like the idea of walking around in heels all day, then this is an easy alternative to Courtney’s look. Just switch out the booties for some bright flats. I matched my flats to this awesome statement belt, but any combination will work.
