Fashionista Spotlight

It is hard to imagine that this is my last post as a Style Guru. For this post I came across a Fashionista that has a sense of ease in terms of her style, but also exuded confidence. It became apparent within minutes of talking to this Fashionista that she is very knowledgeable about the current trends of fashion.

Name: Aby Breidenstein

Major: Anthropology

Year: Second-Year Graduate Student

CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing today?

AB: I’m wearing Gap ultra skinny pants, my favorite Zara cardigan, a Longchamp bag, Forever 21 top and Teva shoes—which I wear for archaeological digs.

CF: What influences your style?

AB: I like to channel Emma Watson and Emma Stone’s styles. I also wear a lot of earthy colors, but still like to be preppy. However, I try not to be too preppy.

CF: Where are your favorite places to shop?

AB: Zara has to be my favorite store right now. I also found this store called The Reformation that has amazing stuff. H&M has some cute clothes right now too.

CF: What is your go-to item for chilly days?

AB: My go-to item would definitely be this cardigan.

CF: If you could have any celebrity’s closet, whose would it be and why?

AB: Emma Watson, because I’m obsessed with her style and closet. Her style is very classic. I admire the fact that she styles a lot of her own outfits and has her own sense of style, rather than being influenced by stylists. I would also like to incorporate a bit of Kristen Stewart’s edgy style as well.

How To: Remember that it is important not only to have your own defined sense of style, but to be well-versed about the current trends. Your style directly reflects whether you are aware of fashion’s latest trends or not. To recreate this Fashionista’s look, you can find a similar cardigan, top and pants with these links. If you would like to channel your inner Kristen Stewart and incorporate some edge into this look, try switching the pants to a pair of leather leggings or wearing some ankle boots with the outfit.
