This Fashionista caught my eye by combining the enticing color combination of red, black and white with the trendy cheetah print. I love her cute accessories and gold accents with this outfit. Her pop of color leggings are adorable with the classic color combination of black and white. Her interest in fashion is apparent with her daily display of charming style.

CollegeFashionista: Which celebrity’s style do you admire the most and why?
Danielle Long: Dakota Fanning’s style keeps changing over the years and this reminds me a lot of myself. I never have one particular style, but multiple. She has to be the one of my favorite style icons from a little girl to a now teenager.
CF: Where do you look for inspirations of your style?
DL: I look everywhere from Teen Vogue magazines, to fashion blogs, and even to people (men and women) walking down the streets. I find it intriguing how people put together their ensembles, and often I consider what goes through their minds when creating an outfit. Inspirations are everywhere!
CF: What’s your favorite wardrobe item?
DL: Jewelry! I believe that you can never have too much jewelry, from earrings, bracelets, necklaces and rings. However, personally, I collect earrings and necklaces the most. Jewelry can add a statement to a simple black dress or by layering necklaces can make an outfit completely different. You can never go wrong with accessories!
CF: What is your favorite season to dress for an why?
DL: Definitely winter! I feel that winter’s clothing are very versatile and you can always mix-and-match summer shorts with tights. You can also layer clothing and create a new style everyday with the same materials.
CF: How has your style from high school to college evolved?
DL: My style changes everyday. I don’t believe that I have a certain style except that I love to wear dresses a lot more more now that I am in college. I live by the quote by Yves Saint Laurent, “Fashion fades, style is eternal.”
How To: Try pairing this inexpensive chic white zipper jacket over a black metallic trimmed top. These pink, red and brown leggings are great paired with the knee high black boots. Put all of this with some similar cute accessories. The bracelet on this Fashionista’s wrist says “blessed,” and she is wearing a pearl cross necklace. Pick jewelry that makes a statement in an outfit. Danielle is right — statement jewelry can make all the difference.
