After writing for Looks on Campus for months, I have naturally adopted the habit of scouting for trendy girls wherever I go. And today, among a crowd of young teenagers with hot pants, floral dresses or heavy make-up in Taiwan’s shopping district, Ruo-Ting’s simple yet fresh style quickly caught my eye.
Though she might not be an over-the-top fashionista like those we’d usually feature, I really like how effortless and practical her outfit looks! I think it is perfect for a school day when you want to feel stylish AND comfortable.
Name: Ruo-Ting Hwang

Elements of Ruo-Ting’s Outfit
If you read College Fashion regularly, you probably already know that one of the biggest fall shoe trends is the lace-up boots. But if you live in a more tropical area or autumn is not quite there yet where you are, why not try a pair of lace-up sandals? They definitely make a simple outfit so much cuter!
2. Tie-Dyed Jeans
Tie-dyed jeans have been hot for a few seasons now, and they’re a great wardrobe option because they can be worn all year long. In addition, I love how they add variety to a simple outfit, and the chic, retro look they give off. Though some may dislike this trend, I think these jeans work perfectly for Ruo-Ting- on her, they look simple yet daring!
3. Rock Basics & Neutral Tones
Although I’m the type of person that usually likes to add pops of colors in my outfit, neutral colors, like those in Ruo-Ting’s outfit, tend to make people feel calmer and more comfortable. So depending on your mood and the occasion that you’re dressing for, neutral colors may be the way to go- especially when you are transitioning your wardrobe from summer to fall.
Share Your Thoughts!
As much as I admire Ruo-Ting’s style, I personally would add a long necklace or some bracelets to spark up this outfit a bit, but that might just be my personal preference.
Now I want to know your thoughts! What do you think? Is Ruo-Ting’s outfit too plain for you or do you love this fresh and clean look? Let us know with a comment!
