I bonded with Becca over her cool, laid-back style after our shared math class. I loved her outfit because of its versatility– it worked for school, but could also be worn to dinner with friends. Her bright necklace and bold clutch were unique touches, yet she managed to keep it comfortable in a pair of sneakers.
I'll be copying her outfit soon. After all, I already have most of the items she was wearing in my closet, and so do many college-aged women. Kudos to Becca for her creative use of basics!

Elements of Becca’s Outfit
1. Black Skort
Why don't we wear skorts more often? I got re-inspired to rock one after seeing Becca's cute and comfortable mini-skort. This one is a basic black that can be dressed up to go out and dressed down for class or hanging out with friends.
2. Cobalt Clutch
I am obsessed with Becca’s blue clutch! It is the perfect size and really complements the rest of her outfit. I also love the bright and summery vibe it adds to her look.
3. Bright Necklace
Becca’s necklace was the first thing I noticed about her outfit. It’s eye-catching and fun, but also works well with the rest of her look. This necklace would add a bit of flair to any outfit and could definitely be rocked with other wardrobe basics, like jeans and a tee.
