No one should ever be afraid to wear white. Yes I admit, it gets dirty easily but its crisp, refreshing look can not be beat. Pants with a contrast trim down each side have recently become a new trend. This week’s Fashionista was spotted wearing gorgeous white pants, which were originally seen on Kendall Jenner earlier this year.
Name: Idara Ekpoh
Collegefashionista: What are you wearing today?
Idara Ekpoh: My entire outfit is from Forever 21 except my boots–they are from JCPenney.
CF: What is your favorite trend for spring?
IE: Dresses. I love bright colored short floral dresses. But, I’ve recently become obsessed with maxi dresses since they are easy to style.
CF: What do you constantly find yourself buying? What’s your obsession?
IE: Heels–I’m a heel fanatic! I feel so confident and dominant whenever I wear heels. I guess it’s because I’m really tall as it is so once I throw on a pair of heels, I tower over people.
CF: The Arizona heat can be unbearable at times. What’s your favorite go-to outfit when it’s really hot outside?
IE: Like I said, I love dresses. A dress is comfortable and versatile since it can easily be styled to suit the ever changing temperatures. For example, when it’s hot outside I can be comfortable in a short, light dress with some cute sandals. But if the temperature drops, I can easily throw on some leggings, a cardigan and some boots, and be warm.
CF: What advice would you give to aspiring Fashionistas?
IE: Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable and confident. You don’t have to follow trends, just be yourself!
CF: Is there a certain color or print that your immediately attracted to when you shop?
IE: I love any bright colors; I always love to be bright and fun.
CF: What’s your favorite type of jewelry?
IE: I would say earrings. I love them since they frame my face and dress up my outfit.
How to: Style your favorite solid colored pants with a bright blue top. If your pants has a thick black stripe down each side, put a black camisole underneath your top. The black from the camisole will connect with the black on the pants and make it stand out more. Wear your favorite boots and large black bag, and you’re ready to go!
