Fashionista Spotlight

As the end of fall season is approaching, the weather is becoming increasingly cold. This means it is time for fun scarves, cute mittens and comfortable coats to use as layering pieces. These pieces can actually make an outfit more fashionable since there are more ways to accessorize and add different textures. However, sometimes this can make getting dressed in the winter a little overwhelming. This Fashionista conquers this by picking stylish winter accessorizes and making them part of her outfit.

Major: Accounting

Year: Junior

CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing?

Aleisia Kisel: I am wearing medium wash jeans with a white and black striped sweater, which are both from Forever 21. I am also wearing a black peacoat and gray knit scarf from American Eagle Outfitters. My black boots are actually from Kmart! They were such a great find. My favorite part of the outfit are my chestnut UGG gloves because they are so warm.

CF: What is your favorite outfit that you own?

AK: The jeans and boots that I am wearing are actually my favorite right now. My favorite top would have to be a red long-sleeve peplum that I own. I also love to wear my Pandora bracelet to accessorize. I always wear the mini hoops and a silver, knotted bracelet that my boyfriend bought for me. 

CF: What fashion items are on your Christmas list?

AK: I really want a pashmina or infinity scarf in a neutral color such as ivory. These are both great accessories to an outfit especially in the cold weather. They are also perfect substitutes for necklaces.

CF: What are your favorite stores to shop at?

AK: My top stores to shop at would be T.J.Maxx, Marshalls and Forever 21. They all always have great prices, deals and so much to offer. Additionally, I love to shop at Forever 21 because they always have something different, which makes me want to branch out and try something new. 

How To: To get this Fashionista’s winter-proof look, first find medium wash jeans and a cozy striped pullover.
