Looks on Campus: Kristie – UC Berkeley


Midterm season is in full swing at Berkeley, which means stressed out students are trekking to the library in sweatpants and t-shirts. It’s definitely difficult to dress well while studying and focusing on exams. But when I saw Kristie on campus, I knew Berkeley had not lost all hope. Her neutral outfit complemented the grey weather while still looking fresh, and her oversized sweater is a fab piece to bring into fall.

Elements of Kristie’s Outfit

1. Detailed Shoulder Bag

Kristie’s gorgeous shoulder bag is the perfect accessory for school; it is large enough to hold all her supplies including books and even a laptop. But the bag also adds the perfect touch to her outfit. The detailed leather is interesting and elevates the entire look.

2. Cool Jewelry

Kristie’s subtle jewelry complements the neutral tones of her outfit, but the mixed metallics keep it interesting. “I always go to flea markets for accessories. Those are the best places to find amazing pieces,” Kristie said.

    Hmm. I’m pretty sure her outfit consists of more then a bag and jewellery.

    I can’t see the jewelry. If you’re going to say the jewelry is a crucial part of her outfit, I think there should be close-ups of each.

    It really doesn’t look like this bag can hold a laptop.

    I think you should have photographed her shoes or something else. This doesn’t look special it looks like you picked someone random.
