Vanessa Hudgens is a name we all remember from her iconic role as Gabriella in the Disney hit movie “High School Musical”. The star’s personal style differs quite a bit from that of the romantic, girly style of her character, yet Vanessa has made a name for herself as a bohemian princess, who absolutely nails it in the style stakes. We have taken some of Vanessa’s best Autumn/Winter styles and broken them to into pieces that will suit your wardrobe and your student budget.
It’s finally Friday outfit
We can all appreciate that by Friday’s 9am lecture, you really just want to be cosy and comfortable (especially when those winter weather conditions hit). Oversized baggy jogger bottoms will make you feel like you’re wearing pyjamas, but you’ll look put together (and its actually acceptable to wear them outside). Vanessa paired the joggers with a distressed denim jacket and some loafers to dress up the outfit slightly, without compromising on comfort. She added oversized shades and a baseball hat to the look to give it that cool girl vibe. She sports a faux leather backpack which you can grab, throw all your bits and pieces into and run out the door.
Seriously stylish Saturday outfit
On Saturday, it’s time for a night out. We have taken inspiration from Vanessa’s simple, yet effective, dressy look. She pairs a simple tailored trouser with a slightly cropped balloon sleeve top. This look is sophisticated and classic, while still being age–appropriate and, because this outfit is so simple, you can really add some personality to it, by pairing it with some detailed jewellery. The look is finished with classic nude tone heels and a sleek high bun. This outfit is super easy to recreate, while breaking the stereotypical jeans–and–a–nice–top go–to look.
Super cosy Sunday outfit
Sunday’s outfit is a mix of casual and put–together. Vanessa rocks the classic Autumn trend of dungarees with some heeled ankle boots; this look is super stylish, but also has very little items that you need to purchase in order to get the style yourself. A pair of dungarees are a staple in your wardrobe because you can make them suitable for all seasons, depending what you mix–and–match with them. In Autumn, pairing this denim number with a long sleeve body suit and your favourite coat will keep you warm but also stylish. Vanessa has also been spotted rocking dungarees in the summer months, paired with a t-shirt and some sandals. Investing in this one–piece hero item might just solve your fashion woes for years to come.
If you really want to go all out and emulate Vanessa’s style head to toe, you could take some inspiration from her signature mermaid–style hair. Loose, slightly messy, bohemian waves are what Vanessa is known for and if you have the skills to get that look, go for it.
Vanessa Hudgens’ fashion choices are simple and accessible, while also being perfect for student life. The actress’ personal style is a long way from many of the characters she plays, but her fashion in itself has carved out a separate iconic personality for the star.
