Lace is everywhere. It’s been trending on the runways for some time now and every store and online retailer has an abundance of dresses, shorts, skirts, and tops all decked out in the wonderful fabric. The best thing about lace is that it can be dressed down for a day out on the town or it can give an LBD a much needed oomph. This Fashionista knew how to take her lace to the streets- she added broken-in , soft leather brown Frye boots and Free People black shorts to accompany her lace top around town. The look is both elegant and L.A. chic.

CollegeFashionista: Who is your fashion role model?
Sophia Baldwin: I love Grace Kelly and Kate Moss. I try to embody Kate’s edge and Grace’s elegance. I love to think that I am always putting a little “Grace” and “Kate” into my outfits.
CF: If you had to describe your style in three words what would they be?
SB: Relaxed, Classic, and Fun.
CF: Where do you like to shop?
SB: I love to shop at Zara. I spent a year in Spain and everyone there shops. I would definitely have to say that my host mother was a great style influencer and we used to shop at Zara all the time! I also love Madewell and Free People for their casual city style.
CF: What is your fashion philosophy?
SB: Never buy anything unless you are absolutely in love with it!
How To: Colored lace is a great trend, so don’t be afraid to hop on the bandwagon. Try a forest green blouse and pair it with pretty cream scalloped shorts. When looking for a bag, remember Grace Kelly and go for something elegant and sophisticated. Add some street cred with beat up motorcycle boots and a studded leather cuff.
