Keeping up with trends can be an extremely difficult task. They make their way into fashion just as quickly as they are pushed out, creating a cycle that never seems to catch a break. This Fashionista is an ideal example of how some trends fade away while others find their way back into out hearts. Take the military trend, we have seen it before and it has definitely come back for round two. Her military green pants complement her black studded cardigan, combining something old with something new. Paired perfectly with stylish Alex and Ani bracelets and classic black boots, this Fashionista creates an on-trend look with ease.
Name: Jenna Miller
CollegeFashionista: What is currently your favorite trend?
Jenna Miller: I’m obsessed with the Jeffery Campbell Lita booties. I’m always searching for the perfect pair inspired by his and constantly borrowing pairs from my roommates to wear out!
CF: How would you describe your personal style?
JM: I’m always wearing neutrals and I rarely wear bright, girly colors. I love adding a little edginess to my outfits with either a pair of dog tags or leather or spiked jewelry. So, I guess I would say edgy!
CF: Describe the most daring outfit you have ever worn.
JM: The craziest outfit I’ve ever worn was a patterned jumpsuit! It was strapless and had the most obnoxious pattern I’ve ever seen on it. But of course I had to try it, so I just paired it with a plain black pair of wedges & minimal jewelry so it wouldn’t be too over the top.
CF: When traveling what are the three items you have to make sure fit into your suitcase?
JM: Aviators, skinny jeans and sweatpants!
CF: If you won the lottery, what would be the first article of clothing you would buy?
JM: Leather leggings! I’m in desperate need of a pair. Lita booties too! I would have to buy both at the same time!
How To: Take a page out of this Fashionista’s notebook and recreate this look by using trendy pieces in addition to a few basics. First, pull out that simple black tank top you probably have lying around or stuffed in your dresser drawers. Next, you will need a black cardigan or sweater with studded embellishments on the shoulders. For trendier pieces like this, try Forever 21 or H&M. To compose the military-inspired trend, try a military green wash pant. If you are looking for something a bit edgier, try camo printed jeans or leggings for a cool twist to this outfit. Any black boot can easily manipulate these suede knee-highs, but try our Fashionista’s favorite bootie. Last, accessorize with bangles! Mix up metals and show off your Alex and Ani collection just like this Fashionista!
