Looks on Campus: Morgan - Kent State University

Publish date:

It’s finally winter break! Most students have returned home for the holidays, so campus is pretty dead this time of year and there tends to be no motivation for anyone to dress to the nines. However, today was beautiful outside for early January and I happened to run into Morgan at the bus stop. She decided to take full advantage of the weather and dress comfortably chic.

Elements of Morgan's Outfit

1. Floral Print Jeans

I love the way Morgan paired together both stripes and floral to create a fashion-forward mixed prints look. These trendy floral jeans are what elevate this otherwise classic winter ensemble into an eye-catching outfit.

2. Peacoat + Striped Turtleneck

Cute college street style

Morgan's chic coat was both weather-appropriate and on-trend. This peacoat is super-unique with its double-breasted buttons and structured shape, yet the black hue means it can be paired with virtually anything.

Morgan styled her coat with a black-and-white striped turtleneck, which kept her neck warm while adding a serious pop of pattern.

3. Fringe Booties

Black booties can be spotted on college campuses everywhere, but this fringed pair stands out. These comfy yet trendy boots also pair perfectly with Morgan's black coat.
