Fashionista Spotlight

Some days you wake up and you know it’s going to be a jeans and T-shirt kind of day. Whenever I have one of those days I always feel a little off. I guess jeans and T-shirts don’t really radiate confidence. However, that’s not always the case. I ran into this Fashionista in downtown Flagstaff and loved how she vamped up her jeans and T-shirt look with a pair of wedge booties and a statement necklace. With these few enhances to her outfit, she had a casual look appear totally trendy! After asking this Fashionista about her outfit she told me she had gotten ready in a matter of minutes. This is just proof that jeans and a T-shirt can be totally fashion-forward while still being quick and comfortable!

CollegeFashionista: Tell me about what you’re wearing! 

Ciera Lund: I’m wearing a pair of jeans I purchased at Norstrom with a high-low tank top that I got from Zara. I paired my jeans and tank with a pair of Steve Madden wedges and a statement necklace from a small boutique in Colorado. 

CF: How would you describe your style?

CL: I would say my style is very classic. I like to keep my outfits simple but enhance them with small pieces that add a little character. 

CF: What statement do you believe is made by your style?

CL: I think my style shows that a classic look can incorporate trendy pieces while still being comfortable.

CF: What’s your advice for students shopping on a college budget?

CL: My advice is to get quality staple items for your wardrobe. With staple items, you can mix and match your wardrobe and build around those classic pieces. Also, shopping in your roommate’s closet is a great way to expand your wardrobe and theirs! 

CF: Who are your fashion icons? 

CL: I love Blake Lively, Jamie Chung and Kendall Jenner. They all are just so confidently chic! 

How To: If you’ve missed your alarm for class or got up on the wrong side of the bed, don’t fear, you can still look your best! First, instead of picking a plain T-shirt go for one with a cool cut or color. This Fashionista chose a high-low that added great dimension to here ensemble. Next pick a darker wash pair of jeans. I suggest skinny jeans because they’re easy to pair with sandals, booties or flats. When it comes to your shoes, you definitely want to have fun with it. I say go for a bold shoe, like a cute wedge bootie. Having fun with your shoe choice will really pull your look together. Lastly, grab a statement necklace or bracelet that will vamp up your casual outfit so it looks totally chic! Once you follow all of these simple steps, your casual T-shirt and jeans outfit will be looking fierce!
