Fashionista Spotlight

We’ve all been to the point where we complain, “I have nothing to wear.” Ninety-nine percent of the time this is not an accurate statement and you do have something to wear, you just don’t know what. If you have a night out on the town coming up, no need to break the bank. Just refer back to your basics. That’s right ladies, believe it or not the LBD will always be in style. Now you might be thinking to yourself that you want a little more va-va-voom over an ordinary LBD. Try opting for a LBD with a little bit of an embellishment. Check out this Fashionista’s cabaret inspired look where a little extra flare goes a long way!

 Jade Johnson



CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your personal style?

Jade Johnson: My everyday sense of style is cute-casual. If I can be comfortable while being cute, then it’s perfect for me. However, my nightlife look is a little more sexy but in moderation.

CF: How has your fashion taste evolved since freshman year?

JJ: So much. I used to wear a lot of rhinestones and glitter, and now I hardly have any embellishments on my clothing. Instead, I save the embellishments for my jewelry.

CF: What is your go-to piece of clothing?

JJ: I have these dark wash high-waisted jeans from American Apparel that I always seem to come back to.

CF: What is one piece of clothing you avoid purchasing?

JJ: I do not like the whole peplum trend including skirts, dresses and tops. I’ve never really gotten into that look.

CF: What are you favorite places to shop?

JJ: BCBGeneration is a MUST. Additionally, I like to shop at Nordstrom, Angl, American Apparel and boutiques around the LA area.

How To: Just because you’re wearing black doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with it! Try stepping out of your comfort zone and vamp up your LBDPumps are a must for this look! Don’t be afraid to venture out and try different styles.
