The greatest part about college fashion is seeing all the different styles shine through the student’s ensembles. Seeing so many different trends on campus can help give a good idea of what kind of styles to try out. I’ve always admired girls who aren’t afraid to take a risk with their fashion. When I spotted this Fashionista I was very impressed with her edgy style. She wore a pair of high-waisted leggings with a crop top and sweater. She pulled her whole look together with a bold headband and legwarmers. The pop of color from her headband added a fun aspect to her mostly dark outfit. The whole look radiated her rocker/edgy vibe which is the exact look she was going for!
