When walking on campus at East Carolina University you can spot many styles because girls are coming and going just about everywhere. There is so much to do and get involved with on campus and there are many girls who coordinate their outfits so well for their campus involvement. I spotted this Fashionsta on her way to a meeting for an organization she’s involved with on campus and had to stop her to ask about this adorable ensemble. Blazers are something that have been growing in popularity since last fall and they are clearly still running the show. It pulled this outfit together and definitely caught my eye from a distance. Read on to find out what else she paired with this striped blazer to create the perfect outfit for a meeting on campus.
Name: Eliya Bernstein
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing and where is it all from?
Eliya Bernstein: The blazer is from Nordstrom and my tank top is BP. These shorts are from H&M, the flats are from DSW and my bag is Michael Kors. My jewelry is also Michael Kors and Cartier. The gold ring band was my grandma’s wedding band so I wear this everywhere.
CF: Where do you usually go shopping?
EB: I normally go shopping at Nordstrom, Urban outfitters, Free People, Topshop and H&M.
CF: How would you describe your style?
EB: Sometimes I’m preppy but sometimes I also do more of an urban look. I always try to be classy or chic in some way.
CF: Where does your inspiration come from?
EB: I get a lot of it from Instagram and magazines and definitely Gossip Girl.
CF: What are you looking forward to wearing this fall?
EB: I’m looking forward to wearing to wearing my Steve Madden boots, definitely leggings and long loose shirts. I love wearing browns and neutral colors also. I love big, oversized comfy sweaters but I hate jeans so I try not to wear those often. I have so many patterned scarves that I’m dying to wear too.
How To: The trick to mimicking an affordable ensemble like this Fashionista is keeping things simple. She revolved the look purely around the color blue with different shades so you can pick a color too. If your blazer or jacket is strong pattern like stripes the smartest thing to do is layer it with a plain white classic tank. To make the outfit appealing to the eye, a dark trouser or shorts would compliment the patterned blazer perfectly. The last thing to do the complete the outfit are the shoes and bag. You can keep things simple by wearing solid color flats and adding a solid color bag from your closet with minimal jewelry that you may wear day to day.
