As much as I love to experiment with fashion, whether it be new styles, crazy fads or upcoming designers, I’ve recently come to realize the importance of having a signature style. In order to look chic in whatever you wear, you have to know what works with your body, your features and your coloring. This Fashionista seems to always look polished but chooses to stick with the basics. I believe she couldn’t look more chic!
Name: Becca Elowitch
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing today?
Becca Elowitch: My shirts is from Nordstrom Rack, my jeans and scarf are J.Crew and my sandals are American Rag. It’s kind of tough trying to decide on an outfit in the morning when it’s very cool outside but much warmer when I get out of class. This scarf is the perfect transitional accessory for the seesaw temperatures that are attributable to this time of year in New England.
CF: If you could win a $1000 shopping spree at any store, which would you choose and why?
BE: That’s definitely a hard decision but my first thoughts are Free People or J.Crew. Actually, maybe I would go with Nordstrom because it carries a variety of these types of brands.
CF: In the past two years, how do you think your style has changed?
BE: I think it has relatively stayed the same. I noticed I dress a little more conservative in college than I did in my high school years, which is probably just a reflection of the more serious, business vibe here at Bentley. Jeans, a plain T-shirt and any one of my millions of scarves are my go-to outfit for class or running errands on the weekends.
CF: What is your go-to outfit for a girls night out?
BE: It obviously depends the occasion but most likely, cute jeans, heels and a tank top of some sort. I rarely find myself in dresses or skirts but you can count on me rocking the highest heels I can find…one of the greatest perks of being short!
How To: To steal this Fashionista’s effortlessly chic look, invest in your basics. There’s no point in stocking up on colored pants or bold accessories if you’re lacking the basics to support these types of fashion risks. I usually go to Zara or H&M when I want these types of basics and then dress them up with more eccentric pieces from stores such as Free People or Urban Outfitters. Hopefully you’ll learn from this Fashionista to help you with your fall shopping!
