Lately the weather has been freezing in Northern Italy (I'm studying abroad for the semester!), so naturally I've been thinking about ways to layer while still looking cute and chic.
Walking to class, I spotted Brianna in an adorable coat and corduroy blazer. She had a simple and subdued style, so I had to ask her all about it!

Elements of Brianna's Outfit:
Corduroy Blazer- Blazers have been making their way into the wardrobes of many college students lately. I like how Brianna chose a corduroy version because it dresses up her outfit...not to mention it's cozy and warm! The style is classic, but the fabric and cut make this blazer stand out. The color choice is also a great one!
Belted Boots- Boots tucked into jeans are essential for winter. The belted boot with a heel adds some flair to Brianna's basic outfit. Also, a small heel makes the boot easy to transition from day to night.
Little Accents- The final touch to Brianna's outfit was this adorable floral-inspired necklace. The length is perfect with her top and the collar of the blazer definitely draws attention to the unique piece. The little details can make all the difference, and that is definitely the case here!
