The sun finally decided to make an appearance here in Southern Indiana, and students on the campus of Indiana State University took advantage by spending time outside.
As I made my way to the commons in the 42-degree weather, I spotted Brittany walking behind me. This sophomore has a great sense of style and a bubbly personality that showed through her look. Brittany’s outfit was well put-together and extremely trendy. She is a shining example of how students should dress on campus.

Elements of Brittany’s Outfit
1. Printed Scarf
Despite the shining sun, the wind continues to be brisk, so Brittany accessorized her outfit with this stellar scarf. The starry print brings a young and fun vibe to her look while actively keeping her warm. It polishes off her ensemble perfectly! The colors of her scarf mix well with the navy blazer and brown leather jacket she chose to layer.
2. Chain-Link Watch
Brittany's Rue 21 watch was another great accessory choice. This gold watch adds to the professional look Brittany likes to portray with her outfits. It is cute and trendy, but the budget-friendly price point makes it ideal for her college budget.
3. Stud-Toed Booties
Brittany’s Steve Madden booties caught my eye as soon as she walked onto the commons. The black suede and gold studs definitely catch the eye, and are extremely on-trend. They are perfect for the chilly weather we are experiencing here in Indiana.
