Basics in any closet are a must-have. The top three basics every woman should have in her closet are a plain white T-shirt, a great pair of jeans and most importantly a black leather jacket. Leather jackets are the perfect throw on to make any outfit, no matter the simplicity of it look chic. Experimenting with your leather jackets is always fun but having a simple structured one can go a long way and help make any outfit. I love how simple but chic this Fashionista’s outfit is. The main focus is the leather jacket with the giant floppy collar and baggy hood.

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?
Ashley Jaros: My style is very minimal and classic. My closet is full is great basics and neutral colors. I like baggy and comfy clothing, mixed with designer duds.
CF: What are your three favorite things in your closet?
AJ: My top three favorite things in my closet are my leather jacket from Nordstrom, Chanel espadrilles and my cashmere scarves. My leather jacket is simple, I throw it on with everything. The Chanel espadrilles are classic, black and cream and make a statement. My cashmere scarves are warm and easy to throw on in the cold.
CF: What is your favorite color for summer and how do you like to wear it?
AJ: I am definitely a black and white girl. I love the classic look it gives off. So I would have to say my favorite color for summer is black. I like to mix up the patterns and fabrics when wearing it in the summer compared to winter. I like to wear black lace or black chiffon and mix it with floral and leopard patterns.
How To: I love the classic look of using black with neutral colors, reminds me of a young Audrey Hepburn. To inmate this look, pair your favorite basic leather jacket, ripped boyfriend jeans and a crisp white T-shirt. Add a neutral color scarf in a fun pattern like florals or leopard and throw on a cute pair of pointed flats.
