Fashionista Spotlight

As we stated in the beginning of fall, punk fashion is in. Leather, black, glossy boots and studs galore. Although this doesn’t necessarily mean we should start piercing our noses, I believe that everyone has their own term of what gives their outfits that punk rock edge. So whether it’s a rocking leather jacket or in this case a simple beanie, every Fashionista and Fashionisto should be entitled to their own version of edginess. Be extraordinary and show off your true colors.

Name: Gina Briones

Major: Interdisciplinary Studies

Year: Senior

CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing today?

Gina Briones: My dress is from T.J.Maxx, my jean jacket and flannel are from Gap, the booties are from Target, clutch from Forever 21 and my Nixon watch is from Zumiez.

CF: What’s your key piece for the fall season?

GB: A beanie, of course! It shows off the “rocker edge” in my personality.

CF: Where do you like to shop?

GB: I have a lot of different places I like to shop at, but I always love going to the guys section as soon as I get there! I’d much rather wear what they do. I feel like I have more options there.  

CF: How would you describe your personal style?

GB: Unique. I love being different from everyone else and I like that to shine through in my outfits. I also have a preppy style with a little twist.

CF: What would be your style advice to other Fashionistas and Fashionistos?

GB: Mix it up no matter what, specially different patterns and never care what other people have to say about what you’re wearing.

How To: Instead of wearing a dress with this outfit, try pairing on some decorative or solid colored leggings just in case the weather starts to drop. Add on a graphic white T-Shirt and pair it with a statement necklace. Try some shoes that will really stand out with this outfit and slip on something monochromatic. Keep the traditional flannel and jean jacket to balance out your outfit.
