Chauncie is not one to let comfort get in the way of style. Even on the days when she wakes up and can’t handle putting on anything besides sweatpants, she still looks fresh off the runway. 

Her outfit today gave me celebrity street style vibes from the moment I saw her. Chauncie may very well be going for a Rihanna-inspired look, as she's (not so secretly) obsessed with her style. Either way, it’s clear that she has real dedication to her everyday look from head-to-toe.

Kansas State University student Chaunice wears a green velour athletic sweatsuit with cropped jogger pants with embroidered lips and love patches and a matching hoodie with a rosegold zipper. She layered on a light-wash distressed denim jacket, giant gold hoop earrings, and crisp black, white, and rosegold sneakers.

Elements of Chauncie's Outfit

1. Denim Jacket

Chaunice's emerald velour tracksuit hoodie with a rosegold zipper is grungier with her light denim jacket over the top.

I am a big fan of the jean jacket, so when I saw Chauncie create a unique look by throwing her denim over a sweatsuit, I fell in love. To the first person who decided to put denim into jacket form, thank you from the bottom of both Chauncie and I's hearts.

2. Giant Hoop Earrings

Chaunice wears ultra-large thin gold hoop earrings and a fresh face of makeup with light pink eyeshadow and lipstick, long eyelashes, defined eyebrows, and shimmering dewey highlighter.

When I say that Chauncie has dedication to fashion, I really mean it. These hoops will draw all of your attention to Chauncie’s jewelry game as well as her expertly applied makeup. When your eyeshadow and highlighter looks this good, you bet you’re going to wear earrings that scream “look at me!”

3. Bold Kicks

These black, white, and rosegold sneakers are extra trendy and fashionable, especially when paired with her emerald green velour jogger pants.

Chauncie is never going to turn up her nose at a trendy piece with a great price. These black, white, and rose gold sneakers were a must-have when she found them at Target. Did you notice how the metallic in her sneakers is the same as found on her sweatsuit zipper and her earrings? She sure knows how to pull a look together.
