Edgy cuts meet feminine fabrics in this on-campus look. Ruth piqued my interest on my way to class when I spotted her sporting this super chic outfit. The way she paired soft basics with giant, chunky zippers and ultra-cool footwear made me do a double take.

Elements of Ruth’s Outfit

1. Statement Bag


Ruth totes around this bucket bag from Zara. It adds a bit of edge to her casual look. That giant zipper is extra fabulous and I can’t get enough of it. I’ve got major bag envy! 

2. Draped Cardigan


The olive cardigan is from Forever 21. Olive green is one of those colors that complements everything it sits up against. The soft fabric makes her cardi look extra cozy.

3. Black Boots


I couldn’t believe my ears when Ruth told me her boots cost just $7! The best part? She swears they’re comfortable. The chunky heels make them a perfect comfortable statement shoe. I like that Ruth didn’t sacrifice cuteness for comfort, but instead was able to mix the both.
