Fashionista Spotlight

The 1960s are in, and I am not complaining. The hippie days are inspiring brands like Free People, Haute Hippie and Urban Outfitters. Whether it is flower headbands, oversize patterned pants or loose fringe tops, how could you not fall in love with the 1960s? This Fashionista combined multiple decades of style into her outfit, which I admire. Her fringe vest is straight from the ’60s, while her skinny jeans remind me of the 1980s with its grunge look. We are approaching a generation of fashion that is encouraged to mix the past decades’ style into your own look. This Fashionista does just that.

Name: Christina Stravous

Major: Marketing

Year: Sophomore

CollegeFashionista: Where is your outfit from?

Christina Stravous: My top and vest are from PacSun, and my jeans are from Nordstrom. 

CF: Who is your fashion inspiration?

CS: Blake Lively and Gossip Girl, I especially look to her character in the show for new ideas on what I wear. I am on my third round of watching all eight seasons, and I can’t get enough of the fashion.

CF: What are you looking forward to wearing this winter?

CS: Definitely my Lily Pulitzer vest. It’s my go-to item to add to anything, and it is perfect for the cold weather. I also love scarves and my big comfy sweaters to make any outfit cute and casual. 

CF: What is something you’re scared to wear but thinking about trying this winter? 

CS: I don’t know if I can pull off hats or a beanie, but I really want to try it for the winter. 

How To: Wear this outfit for dinner with your girlfriends. It is an easy look with just a few changes. I would keep the vest and long sleeve shirt to add a casual look, and add a black leather skater skirt. I would also add some gray or black stockings to keep your legs warm, and even some leg warmers. Combat boots would make the outfit casual and comfortable, but also make the outfit more edgy. This outfit suggestion is a mix of not only our beloved ’60s decades, but some ’80s and ’90s too. You won’t be able to go wrong.
