Day to Night College Style

Hi everyone, my name is Gretta and the point of me blogging is to give some style ideas for you college girls.

The one very important thing I have learned about style at school is that you really have two different identities, the class room and the night life. Day to night styling tends to be very different, and combining the two is often difficult. 

Dressing for class requires something easy and comfortable.  Sure, you want to look good, but you don't always have time to plan out a great outfit before rushing off to class, and sitting through a long class being uncomfortable can turn into one of the worst hours of your life.
Going out however, you have the opportunity to take the time to perfect an outfit.  You don't really have to worry about comfort or rushing to put something together.  When going out, your main goal is simply to look good. 

 So, to help bring "day style" and "night style" together I have picked out a piece that can be used both in the classroom scene and during a night on the town.

Recently I have been in love with rompers. They are adorable, easy to slip on, and ridiculously comfortable, which makes them a perfect piece to wear to class. A romper can also easily be dressed up and made into a great outfit to go out in.  Therefore, a romper is just the perfect piece to add to your college wardrobe! 
Here are some of the ways a romper can be worn.....

To style your romper for class add some simple jewelry like the necklace you see in the picture.  I would pair the outfit with sandals and a cardigan. The cardigan is a very good idea because not only is it cute, but it will also keep you warm in a chilly classroom.

Now for dressing up your romper for a night out, I would add some eye-catching jewelry, preferably big bracelets and long dangling earrings.  Adding a belt is also something I would be likely to do, it adds a lot more to the outfit.  The last thing you need is a pair of banging heels and your night time outfit is ready for anything.

Want to be the envy of the office and your friends? Then you need Jupe's Gold Frame Snake Bag by Urban Expressions, as featured in People Style Watch! This amazing purse looks like something Jackie O or GG's Blair Waldorf would love to own. It is preppy yet classic all in one, roomy, and eco-friendly as well!

This handbag is uber versatile--it's perfect for work, as it's super chic yet professional looking and can fit everything in it! It also transitions well into night, since the gold and tortoise-shell hardware make it more distinctive than your average handbag. Essentially, it's the ideal carry-all you've been looking for.

Jupe HEARTS Althea Harper!

Jupe's recent trunk show with Project Runway finalist Althea Harper was a HUGE success! Aside from being super sweet and gorgeous, Althea is insanely talented. Having worked with Tory Burch, Zac Posen, and Alexander McQueen, she has been exposed to various influences that inspire her unique and feminine pieces. She showcased her fall 2010 line at Jupe, which channeled a very modern and retro vibe semi-reminiscent of the designs of Etro. In addition, she sold pieces from her ready-to-wear line called SITTELLA, which featured comfortable tied-dyed knits and scarves.

In case you weren't able to make it, check out some of the pictures our fab photographer John was able to capture from the event. Keep an eye on Althea, as this rising star of the fashion world is sure to become a household name in the upcoming years. Check out her amazing collection, we know you will love it as much as we do!

Happy fourth of July weekend everyone!
Here at Jupe Boutique we tend to see it all! Being located on East Carson street has its perks , the street lined with bars and night spots brings a lot of interesting and fun shoppers through our door. Such as our very patriotic, early morning, slightly still drunk from the night before shopper . She was such a good sport and let us take a photo of her in her very stylish red, white , and blue table cloth cape for our blog. Got to love her sense of humor and her patriotism . If your not into the whole table cloth look, may I recommend this extremely cute floral tube dress from GLAM for only $58.00 .You can always wear the table cloth with it! HAPPY FOURTH !!!
