Name: Jessica Martin
Major: Fashion Merchandising
CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your personal style?
Jessica Martin: I would describe my personal style as fun and girly with a boho side. I wear what I like and try not to stick with a certain style. One day I could wear black sleek clothing, and the next I could be wearing a floral maxi skirt. So it’s really just about how I feel that day.
CF: What inspires your street style?
JM: My street style is inspired by what celebrities wear and what I see on Pinterest, but also if anyone inspires me I pass by.
CF: What items do you splurge on?
JM: I splurge on handbags and shoes. I want comfortable shoes that are also cute, and I have small feet so I have to spend more to get what I want.
CF: How does your major influence how you dress for classes?
JM: I usually always get ready for class but it’s most likely just casual clothing with accessories to dress it up. Being a fashion major, I feel like I can’t dress down unless it’s a gym day.
CF: What is your favorite season to dress for and why?
JM: My favorite season to dress for would be spring because it’s still cool enough to mix up your outfit with light jackets and cardigans or kimonos to layer but warm enough to wear skirts.
CF: What trends are you most excited about trying out this summer?
JM: For summer, I am excited to try full skirts and bold floral prints.
How To: Try to embrace your inner bohemian this summer, whether it is in regards to silhouette, print or accessories. The summer heat is right around the corner and there is nothing worse then being in tight fitted clothes on those blazing hot days. Opt for a maxi skirt or dress this summer to keep cool. If you are feeling bold and really want to play off this bohemian trend, printed pants are a great way to make a statement. Top off your look with some stacked bangles or a headpiece.
