b:includable CLASS ACT | Creme de la Chic: CLASS ACT



Make the grade in acing your bohemian side by layering lightweight lace pieces. (Try saying that three times). Your fashion extracurriculars? Stacking vintage rings like a Free People pro and acting out a lifelong role as a wanderlust traveler freely roaming the festival deserts. Stressing out during finals? Not likely. Your relaxed, go-with-the-flow personality is as natural as your color palette of earthy tones. Reach for a generous overdose of accouterments when it comes to accessorizing such as a basic fringe-braided suede knapsack and a cascading coin necklace to sprinkle movement while you travel to and from classrooms. 

Strengthen your fashion skills by opting for vibrant punches of color. Don't run away from flamboyant prints! Listen, we all know the ubiquitous neon shoe trend pervading the streets on and off the courts. So step up your game and dare to dabble in watercolor-effect jogger shorts and a breathable mesh detail windbreaker. Finish off your sartorial winning streak by clasping on a dainty, double-layered coin necklace with glimmers of sparkle to resemble your shining moments of attaining medals (and soon-to-be Olympic gold medals). After all, being MVP of the fashion game is another title to add to your never-ending list of wins. 

Pass the class in flying colors--of all shades pink, that is. Ditch the cinema cliché of cookie-cutter cheerleader or princess drama queen when it comes to your color of choice. Revamp pink's stereotype with frothy chiffon trousers and flower bouquet rimmed sunnies that are a nod to a saccharine sweet look. Your uniform of all things pink may be soft and princess-esque but your daring personality is anything but. Just call yourself a modern day Molly-Ringwald-slash-Elle-Woods.

The quote "Only great minds can afford a simple style" is as black and white as your style. Ditch the fuss of over mixing pattern play with sleek and minimalistic bits and baubles. Take note: a demure jet-black lace bralette paired with a crisp white tee as a statement piece. We've all been victims of the tyrannical rule banning all cellphones in classrooms. Case in point: it may be hard to cunningly stash away your eye-catching grid-patterned case in Calculus class (pun intended). To elevate your modus operandi of style akin to normcore, experiment with a croc-embossed wallet or a buttery leather backpack to swiftly stash your art pencils and moleskine notebooks during those TGIF moments.
