Fashionista Spotlight

In the midst of this frigid weather—cold enough for classes to be cancelled for the first time since 1978—I spotted this Fashionista looking stylish while still trying to stay warm. She was on her way home when I stopped her. This Fashionista was a very good sport, willing to bear the cold in order for me to take a picture of her outfit. What makes her ensemble such a standout is that it contains a number of staples that should be in every Fashionista’s closet. Her oversized cardigan is a great layering piece for changing seasons. She paired the cardigan with a pair of black combat boots. The continued presence of combat boots on the runway, evident in the spring 2014 Jean Paul Gaultier show, makes it a key piece to have in your closet. Read on to see what else makes her such an ideal Fashionista!
