There is a time in a girl’s life when her wardrobe should be taken up an extra notch. Transitioning from teen trends to fashion forward looks of young adulthood has proven to be a tough leap for many females in college. The spring “go-to” of the often seen tank, jeans, and sandals combo is prevalent on campus, as demonstrated on this week’s makeover model Victoria in the before picture. Jeans and tanks may be easy, but they do not lengthen and flatter her figure as do the cropped jacket and high-waist graphic printed skinny jeans.
Graphic print is the latest twist to the ever-popular skinny jean. The bold floral pattern of the jean in a muted color scheme highlights Victoria’s legs. The high cut adds instant length and hugs her curves. A simple black tee with a touch of lace trim serves as a good layering piece underneath by a cropped motorcycle jacket in metallic sequins. The sequins and the floral print may seem daunting to pair together, but they work well because they are both in charcoal tones. A smoky gray eye and nude lip keep the focus on the metallic highlights and floral motif of the outfit.
Graphic printed jeans allow room for expression and creativity, depending on what one pairs with it. Contrasting printed jeans with a subtle patterned top can be an option for the more bold, while a solid colored blouse, tee or blazer is an easy to wear option as well. Graphic printed skinny jeans and metallic accents are the perfect way to kick up one’s wardrobe and take any girl from frumpy to fab!
