A timeless style is what we all want to attain. Fashion is evolving at its fastest, and it seems that every month there is a new trend.
In my spare time, I like to browse through the Zara and NASTY GAL websites to check if I am up-to-date and keeping up with the latest fashions. To my surprise, the white button-up polyester shirt I had bought three weeks ago on NASTY GAL was nowhere to be found! Everything had been replaced by leopard prints, faux fur, leather and dark, grunge tones. How can a Fashionista ever keep up?
Fashion is going to keep changing at its pace, but our personal style is not. Of course, our style does evolve, but it stays true to who we are. As Mr. Saint Laurent said, “Fashions fade, style is eternal.” Everyone of us has that classic personal touch in our wardrobe.
The Fashionista I spotted today stays true to who she is and her personal timeless style. She loves wearing feminine, doll-likeZara dresses every day of the year.
Name: Sandra Pratt
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing right now?
Sandra Pratt: I am wearing a Forever 21 bow headband and shoes and a turtleneck long sleeve shirt from Gap. I bought my dress and tights at Zara.
CF: What inspires your look?
Sandra Pratt: I like to dress with the season; now that it is winter, I pick color schemes that go with the grayer weather. Also, I always keep my look simple and classy—it’s important for me to feel comfortable in everything I wear. Dresses are one of my biggest obsessions when it comes to shopping. I had bought this dress about two years ago, and I still wear it because it is simple and classic.
CF: Who inspires your style?
Sandra Pratt: Audrey Hepburn—she was such a beautiful person. Everything about her was mesmerizing, especially her style. She always dressed appropriately for the occasion. I have seen all her movies and she looks like a very down-to-earth person who likes to dress classy and simple. That is my style.
How To: Get this look you can buy some cool, patterned tights and lace-up booties at ALDO. Get a cute dress that goes with the fall and winter colors, such as gray, dark green, black or brown. Also, buy a variety of headbands, either from Claire’s Boutique or Forever 21. Keep it fashion-forward and true to your personal style!
