Have you ever wondered, Study Abroad Fashionistas, why you communicate more confidence when you wear that Florentine leather bag to class after your Study Abroad experience? Why that Parisian scarf gets you noticed at an Art History reception at your home University after your expat experience? 
It’s simple. You belong to a group, but you are standing out. You are a chic college student who is visually communicating her different experiences through her fashion. People notice you because you stand out, because you have the confidence to wear what makes you feel like you in the moment, and you don’t need to totally conform: you embrace what it important to you and stylisitically “riff” with your dress code. 
The WSJ has just written a story about a study by Harvard Business School (read it here), confirming what we Study Abroad Fashionistas have known all along. 
The article states: 
“Standing out in certain circumstances, like wearing sweats in a luxury store, also appears to boost an individual’s standing.”
It’s why on this blog we champion the styles of SportLuxe (read about it here), standing out by wearing those Italian driving shoes on the Starbucks run, and wearing that fur vest to class. 
Here at Fashion by Felicia we Study Abroad Fashionistas have known all along, being different isn’t just about standing out and boosting a standing, it’s about being true to ourselves and our experiences- and that is what being Fashion, as the Italians would say, is all about!
