Today’s Fashionista is ready for summer; are you? She’s rocking high-waisted shorts with a patterned tank and black fringe booties. Add sunnies and a printed backpack and her look is complete. She also had a thin black cardigan with her to layer up when it got breezy, which is smart. We’ve all had those days when we overestimate how warm it will be and find ourselves unprepared for the wind or shade (or maybe that’s just me…). Read more about this Fashionista below!
Name: Aja Evans
CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?
AjaEvans: Kind of like…whatever I find in my sister’s closet that goes together.
CF: When you’re not in your sister’s closet, where do you shop?
AE: I shop at Forever 21 ‘cause it’s cheap and cool, but I try to get a couple pieces from different spots, from different vintage stores and stuff like that.
CF: What do you think about the style in New York and at NYU?
AE: I love it; I think it’s really inspiring. People from my high school pretty much told me to come here because I’d probably fit in better because of the clothes I wore. So I thought that was pretty cool — and it’s true; everyone kind of has their own style and it’s a way to express yourself.
CF: What else inspires your style?
AE: I read Nylon Magazine. I really love that because I think it talks about a lot of different ways to dress and also different music.
How To: Dressing for sunny, warm weather should be fun and easy. Take a cue from this Fashionista and pair a patterned tank with high-waisted shorts. Those shorts will also be perfect to pair with crop tops and bralettes — in case you were wondering how best to rock those midriff-baring tops!
