Fashionista Spotlight

It’s here, finals week! It’s the moment every college student dreads, but awaits at the same time. You don’t want it to start, but you can’t wait for it to be over. Everyone knows it’s not easy to pull off your greatest looks when you haven’t slept in three days from trying to finish projects. But there are ways to look cute even in the midst of finals week, and this Fashionista is living proof of it.

Name: Alexandra Spizuoco

Major: Architecture

Year: Sophomore

CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing and where is it from?

Alexandra Spizuoco: I’m wearing a nude knitted sweater from Forever 21, jean shorts from American Eagle Outfitters, Zara flats, Urban Outfitters statement necklace and Prada sunnies.

CF: How would you describe your style?

AS: I would describe my style as very simple, but I think I have the right accessories to complement my simplicity so I don’t make it boring.

CF: What’s your advice for Fashionistas on a budget?

AS: I’d say shop at places like Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, Urban Outfitters and Zara. They follow the trends so they make you look stylish at a lower cost. Also, some pieces are more expensive than others, but they’ll eventually go on sale so I’d wait to buy those more expensive pieces when they are on sale.

How To: To recreate this Fashionista’s stylish finals week look, start by finding a light mid-sleeved crochet sweater like this Urban Outfitters one. Pair it with basic high-rise jean shorts. I personally like these ones from American Eagle Outfitters. Add a statement necklace to make your outfit more interesting. This Anthropologie one is perfect to add some edge.
