CollegeFashionista: Describe your personal style.

Brooke Harding: My style is definitely seasonal. During the colder months I go pretty boho because there are so many opportunities to layer but in the spring and summer it’s pretty clean and simple. 

CF: What inspires your style?

BH: Travel. I love incorporating different patterns or colors that remind me of places that I’ve visited. 

CF: What is your favorite thing to accessorize and outfit with?

BH: Definitely rings. I feel naked without them!

CF: When did you take the plunge and hop on the bandwagon for the high-waisted trend?

BH: This winter actually. I was kind of late to the game because I had convinced myself that they were the equivalent to mom jeans but when crop tops made their return I couldn’t resist. I took a risk and bought a pair of high-waisted denims and then there was no turning back, I absolutely love them! 

How To: Chances are you have some of these pieces in your closet already. The staple piece in this look are the high-rise jeans. Urban Outfitters is a great place to go to find a handful of different high-rise styles. Next, pick up a plain white T-shirt from Gap. Accessorize the look with a classic leather belt and plain brown oxford flats. Lastly, finish the look with a drop necklace and gold arm cuff.
