Everyone can be a Fashionista! That’s what I love about fashion; it’s a worldwide phenomenon that knows no boundaries. It may take a little bit more effort for some, but this Fashionista proves it’s worth it. Today’s Fashionista is wearing pieces that I would consider classic in a wardrobe, except she throws a fun twist to it. It’s great to see a trendy piece being worn in an everyday outfit. This Fashionista finds her own style and keeps a bright outlook towards her wardrobe. Read below to see what inspired her to branch out of her fashion shell.
Name: Janett Villegas
Major: Human Development and Family Sciences
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing and where is it from?
Janett Villegas: My top is from Santee Alley in Los Angeles, my pants are from Cato, my shoes are from Forever 21 and my bag is Marc Fisher.
CF: Where do you usually shop?
JV: I shop at places where I can get good quality clothes for less like Marshalls, T.J.Maxx and Kohl’s. I love getting clothes at these places because they feel like such a steal. It takes a lot of digging, but that’s definitely half the fun of shopping. I only worry about how I feel when I try on the clothes, not the brand.
CF: What’s your favorite item in your closet?
JV: I have this gorgeous long-sleeve skater dress from H&M! I love it because it adds the illusion of curves. It’s sassy and very versatile.
CF: What/who inspires your style?
JV: My sophomore year I had a roommate that dressed up all the time. She inspired me to find my style. I like to keep it simple but it’s fun to catch on to trends. I feel brave and brand new when I try something trendy. It makes fashion fun.
CF: What will you be wearing a lot this upcoming fall?
JV: I want to add more professional pieces to my wardrobe. I am looking forward to pants in dark rich colors. It’s easy to pull off but still has a a sense of creativity and it’s not so boring.
How To: This is a fun and easy going look. It’s perfect for those busy class days that turn into long nights at your internship. Start with a basic piece like a white blouse and add some colored pants. If you are feeling a bit more adventurous, you can try some printed bottoms. To finish up your classic look, add some nude flats and an oversized tote so you can fit everything that you will need for the day.
