As the second wave of midterms begins to hit Ann Arbor you can expect to find hundreds of students at the library burying their heads deep into their textbooks, myself included. I spotted this Fashionista while I was taking a study break before I headed to my next class. What attracted me to this Fashionista was her effortless style. She exemplified this through her combination of a parka with Timberlands, which are making a comeback thanks to Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn.
Name: Audrey Easterwood
Major: Organizational Studies and French
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing today?
Audrey Easterwood: Timberland boots, which I like for the winter because they’re waterproof and comfortable, a coat I got in Paris from studying abroad, a scarf from Urban Outfitters and black pants.
CF: What is your go-to item for chilly days?
AE: A scarf, always.
CF: Where are your favorite places to shop?
AE: Anywhere really. When I’m on campus I like going to Pitaya and Urban Outfitters. You can always find little places with cute clothes around town.
CF: What influences your style?
AE: At school I like to be in comfortable clothes. When I was in Paris studying abroad, I wore trendier clothes and a lot of darker colors because it was a trend there. They’re also big on scarves so I guess I picked that up there.
CF: If you could have any celebrity’s closet, whose would it be?
AE: Miranda Kerr because she’s classy and elegant, but also has great street style. Not many people can pull both off so well.
How To: To get this Fashionista’s look, think about adding a scarf to your next outfit to help transform the look. You can add a splash of color to your outfit with a scarf or you can complement your neutral look, like this Fashionista did, with a gray scarf. If you’re looking for a practical and comfortable outfit for class, check out the parka and Timberlands I linked. However, if you want to spruce up your outfit and stand out more you can swap out the black jeans this Fashionista wore with leather leggings.
