I go to art school.
Standing out and looking composed, in a big group of fellow creative minds, can be a challenge.
But, I can handle it.
I dress in things that catch my eye, and make a lot of my own clothes.
I take risks most of my buddies are afraid to try.
I put together simple combinations, then add a few funkier items with rad details to punch it up.
To my happy surprise, this technique earns me oodles of compliments, from classmates and the occasional stranger.
Such is the case with this military-inspired jacket.
I feel amazing every chance I get to strut around in it.
It’s wearable with jeans or a skirt all day, and a simple shoe change carries it over into party mode!
When I need help making a statement, I head to Forever 21.
