The best part about fashion is that it’s unique to the individual. The same item can be worn in so many different ways by so many different people. I love how this Fashionista styled her canary yellow Cambridge “batchel”—an updated version of the traditional satchel, with a handle added for easier transporting. The batchel’s bold hue caught my eye as I was scanning Towson’s campus for fashionable finds. While most students stick to a plain black backpack to carry their textbooks and pens, this Fashionista puts a modern twist on the school briefcase.
With a streak of vibrant turquoise in her hair and dark-red tights that are perfect for fall, it’s clear that this Fashionista is a risk-taker when it comes to trends. Rich-brown leather combat boots juxtapose her sweet floral-patterned dress. Topped off with an army green military blazer, she was set for a day of classes.

If you want to put together a look that will stand out, remember to pair similar colors in your outfit and then add bold elements. Like this Fashionista, try a fall color scheme. Reds and yellows go well together, especially when added as accent pieces. If you want to wear a print, find one that is appropriate for the season, like a fall floral. Don’t forget to pack a punch and make a statement—whether it’s a bright yellow handbag, a streak of blue hair or an awesome vintage dress!
