Fashion in the Concourse

If there's one thing about Laurier students it's that they do not support rocking sweats to class. I am pleased to say that I am among very fashionable people here at WLU. Take a look at some of my favourite outfits I came across in the concourse, there's nothing I love more than fall fashion! Let's keep up our display of unique style, shall we Laurier?

My Ideal Fall Outfit

I came across this photo of Kate Winslet the other day and completely fell in love with it. From her messy waves right down to her gorgeous boots, it is my ideal look for fall. Firstly, her messy windblown waves and neutral makeup makes her look flawlessly comfortable on this fall day. The pink lipstick is a personal favourite of mine for the fall season; it adds a touch of colour that contrasts nicely with autumn hues. The oversized chunky knit paired with tights has been a popular look this fall season. Something so painlessly simple to put together is not only comfortable, but it is the perfect way to stay warm while keeping up your chic image. Lastly, those boots! Her perfectly lived in combat boots are ideal for this time of year. They are the ideal piece to add an edgy, vintage feel to the whole look. Hope you enjoy!

In Preparation for Halloween Fashion Bash...

All of us are so excited for the second annual Halloween Fashion Bash and we hope you are too! If you're stuck on what to wear keep reading for some amazing ideas!

Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw

Carrie Bradshaw strutted her fashionable stuff all over the streets of NYC for years. Her oh so versatile style was, and still is, admired by many which makes her a perfect fashion icon to dress up as! Rock her classic look by wearing a white tank and pink tiered tutu. Work on your messy curls and in honour of Ms. Bradshaw wear your most fabulous heels. Add some accessories that will pop and you've got your Carrie Bradshaw look!

Audrey Hepburn 

Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's is such a classic look that women have imitated for years now. The classy LBD worn with black gloves and the most incredible diamonds bring together one of the most timeless looks to date. To achieve Audrey's look wear your most flattering black dress, a put together up-do, and diamonds diamonds diamonds! Oh, and don't forget the oversized sunglasses to finish off the look.

Leighton Meester as Blair Waldorf

Blair Waldorf's polished, put-together style on the set of gossip girl is something all powerful women admire. Pulling off the effortlessly classy yet sexy look is not an easy task, which is why she is one of the most modern fashion icons. A classic pencil skirt with a chic blouse is an easy way to achieve your Waldorf style. Add your favourite blazer and heels to really polish it off. Pair it with bold accessories that will embellish your simple pieces and you musn't forget her signature accessory: the thick-strapped headband!

Marilyn Monroe

Few words are needed to describe Marilyn Monroe's sexy style. Admired by men and women alike Marilyn was deemed a style icon the moment she was photographed in that iconic white dress. Copy her look by wearing a short, figure flattering white dress with white heels. Curl your hair and rock the red lips to complete the simple, sultry look.

Nicki Minaj

One word to describe Nicki Minaj's style: BOLD. Fearless when it comes to fashion, Nicki always pulls off out-of-this-world outfits. Her style is along the lines of "anything goes" but here are a few tips for those who are brave enough to imitate this fashion icon: 1) Don't be afraid to mix bright, bold colours and patterns. 2) Remember accessories are your friends. 3) Accentuate your curves. 4) Finally, wear the highest heels you can find. 

We are so excited to see our members rocking the look of their favourite fashion icon! All members: get ready for a night filled with music, food, pictures, and most importantly, amazing people.
