How To: Dress Fashionable when you're on the Go


Hey Fashloves,

As most of you all may know I am currently attending College which basically is the equivalent to me being busy almost 24/7. Between attending classes, being apart of student organizations, and attending events; I find my myself almost always on the go. Despite how hectic my schedule can get I always try to keep myself looking fashion forward but I understand that can be difficult for some out there at times (who has time for clothes when work has to get done?!) If you can relate with me, then this post is for you! I'll be providing you with a few tips that can be utilized when choosing a fashionable outfit for an eventful day.

Tip #1: Choose trendy light weight pieces 


Being a girl who is on the go, I constantly find myself moving from one location to another frequently. When moving around a lot it is best to wear lighter weight pieces because no one wants clothing weighing them down when handling business. For this look I wore a long line black vest which didn't add any unnecessary bulk but still contributed a trendy touch. My ribbed turtle neck was also very light and allowed air to circulate so I wouldn't sweat while on the move in New York City. 

Tip #2: Opt for your cute pain free shoes 


Initially when I put together this look I planned on wearing black high heeled sandals. I immediately knew that was going to be a no-go because I was in the Big Apple and everyone knows that means walking -and tons of it. My Nike Free Runs were the perfect alternative and actually gave my look a new vibe that I preferred. To all my ladies who are comfortable wearing high heels on the go I salute you because I personally just can't do it! For those of you who are like me (strongly believe that comfort is key) then be sure to base your outfit around a comfortable shoe in your collection. Sneakers such as Nike Roshes' and Adidas are actually really trending right now and are seemingly making their way to becoming the new standard flat!

If you feel like sneakers or flat won't do your outfit justice go for a cute low chunky heel or booties such as the shoes I wore here

Tip # 3: Choose a season friendly color palette that helps keep you calm 


When being on the go there can be times when you become overwhelmed, stressed, or just extremely occupied. Studies show your color choice of your clothing actually can be linked to emotions as well. Research has also shown that different colors have psychological, emotional and physical effects on us. The Huffington Post has an article entitled, "How Color Affects Our Mood" which goes into detail about how colors indirectly influence how we feel and gave a few colors that can help change your frame of mind.

In regards to my look, my green top helped put me in a more relaxed and refreshed mood. My white pants helped elude clarity and freshness. Finally, my black vest showed a bit of power and elegance. Be sure to choose calm colors while on the move that are relevant within the current season, it really helps!

Tip #4 Accessorizing is your best friend


Whether its jewelry, a cute fedora, or a light weight scarf, accessorizing is the perfect way to take your outfit up a notch if you decide to not put much effort into your look. I didn't accessorize as much with my outfit but I was sure to add a gold bracelet and large gold studs to add an extra touch to my look. Another great way to accessorize is through your make up. Lipstick is the perfect way to add spice to your look and only takes 10 seconds to apply! 


Hope these tips will help you choose the perfect on the go friendly outfit for your day! If you ever have any specific fashion related questions please feel free to contact me here and I'll be sure to either speak to you directly or create a blog post answering your question.
