My CollegeFashionista friends, I have finally found the perfect Fashionista to give the low-down on how to wear a matching ensemble without looking overly put together. This Fashionista knows how to wear a near all-black outfit, yet makes it stylish by breaking it up with her own funky twist. With the help of spring and summer's favorite pattern, floral, she makes sure this reoccuring trend is fresh and original. Her ankle-gripping black, pants from ASOS have a really interesting detail — they're sheer throughout the leg — and she does a great job of bursting with bits of color by matching her cobalt blue sandals with her floral top.

How To: This Fashionista turned a rather feminine outfit into an edgier one by simply adding a black leather bomber. You can make any outfit more edgy by wearing black separates, whether it is bottoms, shoes or a jacket; and you can instantly make any outfit femine by wearing florals or frills. For a look inspired by this Fashionista, try this light floral, cutout, high-low dress paired with this quilted, black leather bomber jacket and these Jeffery Campbell lace-up black booties for not only equal parts girly and edgy, but also matching and style surprise.
