Fashionista Spotlight

It’s the beginning of a new school year and that means it’s time to put your best look forward. For the majority of us who were on winter break, we racked up some new fancy items. For those of you who were not able to go on a shopping spree this past break, don’t feel left out because today’s Fashionista shows us how even simple items can still grab people’s attention.

Name: Amber Peoples

Major: Early Childhood Education

Year: Junior

CollegeFashionista: I love the simplicity of your outfit. Tell me about what you are wearing today.

Amber Peoples: I got this striped shirt and shoes from Target. The pants, I don’t remember and this watch was a birthday gift to me from Target. The pearl bracelets are a vintage piece I’ve owned for awhile now. The belt I got from Charlotte Russe. Basically, I got up this morning and I didn’t want to wear jeans so I decided to wear these mustard-colored corduroy pants. Since I thought it was going to be cold today, I decided to throw on a last minute item such as the cardigan to tie my look together for a chic look.  

CF: What is your style inspiration?

AP: It really depends on how I feel when I wake up. Some days I feel like wearing a dress so I start off with a staple piece and then I add to it. I also look at Pinterest and blogs for inspiration. Basically if there is something I like wearing I wear it! 

CF: What item in your closet is something that you cannot live without?

AP: Scarves! I have a gazillion scarves. I like to accessorize everything with them and I even wear them in the summertime.

CF: What advice do you have for fellow CollegeFashionista’s who would like to stand out?

AP: Basically just wear your personal style. Don’t try and copy someone else. Wear whatever you’re comfortable in even if it doesn’t match. As long as you like it and it looks presentable to you then that’s all that matters.  

How To: The key to recreating this Fashionista’s look is to buy a pair of mustard-colored pants, a pair of ballet flats, a cute shoulder bag and an oversized cardigan. Once you have all of these items checked off your shopping list then you will be on your way to an effortless ensemble.
