I had an amazing opportunity to attend Pittsburgh Fashion Week. Not only was the fashion show brilliant, but the attendees were dressed to the nines!
I caught up with a fellow West Virginia University student, Hannah, and got the scoop on her trendy look. Her outfit caught a lot of attention during the VIP party before the show. You will love her effortless vibe and animal print trousers!

Elements of Hannah’s Outfit
1. Layered Graphic Tee
This layered look has become a signature for Hannah. She dresses up her thrifted Harley Davidson tee with a delicate camisole on top. The contrast is unique and eye-catching. Hannah went on and on about her love for layering; it’s safe to say she’s mastered the technique.
2. Animal Print Trousers
I am obsessed with Hannah’s pants from ASOS. The cut and print are both very on-trend and also perfect for fall. It’s also important to note her chunky, western-style belt, which completely contrasts the vibe of her trousers.
These chunky shoes have become quite the trend themselves! I have seen them pop up everywhere on social media and they are slowly making their way across campus at WVU. These platforms complement her ensemble without distracting from her pants.
