CollegeFashionista X Macy’s: mstylelab at The University of Tampa

Exclusive Feature

Being a Fashionista is all about style. It’s about growing into your own sense of fashion and sharing it with the world! As we mature in style, we begin to define who we are. And in a world of trendsetters and fashion icons, we find out what styles help us to express ourselves and take risks so that we can explore the Fashionista constantly bursting from within us.

The Macy’s mstylelab is every fashionable girl’s dream! With tons of brands and designers available, the mstylelab offers a look for every Fashionista. Casual, sophisticated, preppy, edgy—you name it, mstylelab has it! When I headed to check out the clothing, I had one thing on my mind…fall! Dressing for fall has always been my favorite (even though Tampa can be so cruel with 85 degree weather in December). But still I can’t help but be drawn to cozy sweaters and leather boots. As I walked through the racks I found myself picking out the best fall staples and I’d love to share my finds with you!

My first look consists of a black crop tank paired with a Pink Rose leather skater skirt. To even out the hard and soft, I found this Belle Du Jour cardigan sweater to throw on over my shoulders. I love its oversized style and studded shoulder details—perfect for staying warm when the air cools and always looking hot! To finish off the outfit, I chose my favorite pair of combat boots and a quilted leather crossbody. When I put this look on I thought, girls night out! Next time I wear it I’ll try heeled booties and a high topknot to dress it up even more.

My second look feels more like first date night. I picked out this adorable Jessica Simpson knit sweater and paired it with simple black leggings and booties. The star of the outfit (and possibly one of my favorite pieces I found) is this American Rag leather vest! It’s rocker-chic with a modern feel and adds a little spunk to a classic look. That boy won’t know what hit him when I answer the door! I  also love this outfit for a Saturday afternoon as well. Trade out the heels for flats, grab your carryall and head out for fun weekend activities.

My last look combines all my favorite fall classics. A flowy long sleeve shirt is a must and this maroon Rebellious One top is perfect. I layered it over a ruffled tank to add some flirtiness and kept the bottoms simple with easy black leggings. Then come the boots—the Rampage boots I just knew I had to have from the moment I saw them! These black leather boots are go-to for any occasion, always look great and are incredibly comfortable. I threw on a floral scarf to add some color and carried my perfect little blush Kate Spade bag. This look can really take you anywhere around campus, out to run errands or to lunch with your friends. It is also easily dressed up to make it a great evening ensemble as well!

And there you have it everyone! Three awesome looks with so much variety all found in one fashionable location. All of these great fall pieces are very versatile and I can’t wait to discover all of the outfits I can create with them. Now get ready to let your stylin’ self shine this fall by heading to the mstylelab at Macy’s and letting all the fashion it as to offer speak to you. No matter what your inner Fashionista screams, you’ll find everything you need to let her out at the mstylelab!
