The South is known for its classic charm and southern belle-ish way of dress. But every once in a while you’ll come across a Fashionista that defies the norm and rocks out to her own edgy drum. This Fashionista exudes edginess with her lace maxi and statement necklace. Her whole ensemble seemed to be plucked effortlessly from vintage racks and rock n’ roll archives.
Name: Alexandra Wood
Major: Apparel Design
CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?
Alexandra Wood: I would describe my style as “classic urban.” My closet consists of fun prints, washed out denim, collared shirts and embellished garments. I love pairing classic and edgy pieces together.
CF: Where do you like to get style inspiration?
AW: I get most of my inspiration from street style. I like a little East Coast mixed with West Coast style. Sometimes I’m caught staring at people, but I’m really checking out their outfit not them.
CF: If you could trade closets with someone who would it be?
AW: Alexa Chung. I love almost everything in her closet. I love how she uses prints and incorporates vintage into her wardrobe.
CF: What spring trend are you most excited to try?
AW: This spring I am looking forward to wearing a full tea-length skirt. I have always loved the look, but was never much of a skirt and dress girl until recently.
How To: To get the chic edgy vibe held captive in this Fashionista’s look, start with a black maxi. This one from NASTY GAL, has just the right amount of swing and spunk. Add your favorite oversized knit cardigan like this one from ASOS and a statement necklace and be prepared rock out on your campus runway. Amp up your look a bit with a punchy lip color like heat wave from NARS.
