Fashionista Spotlight

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!

CollegeFashionista: Tell me about what you’re wearing today?

Carly Farese: I’m wearing a pair of leggings from Old Navy with a crop top from Urban Outfitters. I got my sweater from Cotton On and my boots from Target. Then, I finished off my outfit with legwarmers from Free People and a head wrap from Urban Outfitters.  

CF: How do you think your style has developed throughout your college career?

CF: I’ve definitely become more confident in my style. I know in high school I would have never rocked a crop top, but now I love them! I think I’ve really come into my edgy side. 

CF: What is a trend you would never be caught wearing?

CF: I would never wear anything with sequins. I just don’t think they fit in with my personality or style. 

CF: Where’s your favorite place to shop?

CF: My favorite place to shop is Urban Outfitters. They have a great mix of formal wear and casual wear. Urban Outfitters also carries a lot of darker clothes which I’m a huge fan of. 

CF: What is your favorite season to dress for?

CF: My favorite season to dress for is winter! I love high socks, legwarmers, boots, thicker headbands and layer cardigans and peacoats.  

How To: To look edgy chic like this rocker Fashionista you’re going to start with a dark palette for your ensemble. Black clothes are your friend. Beginning with your pants, choose a pair of black leggings like this Fashionista or a pair of pleather leggings to really rock it up! Next, pick a black crop top. You can have fun with your crop top and pick one that has a bands logo on it. If it’s chillier outside, add an oversized sweater or leather jacket. For shoes you’re going to need a pair of black booties or combat boots. Finally, add some fun accessories like a bright headband or a colorful necklace. Once you’ve paired all of these pieces together you’ll be looking edgy in no time!
