The unassailable rule of spring is that white garments are guaranteed to be a testament of the transition into summer style. While we are all gearing up for the rising temperatures, this Fashionista is one step ahead, pairing her chic white pants with an earth tone mesh top and cognac belt. To attain this refreshing and crisp silhouette, check out this Fashionista’s sartorial insights below!
Name: Jenna Holtzman
Major: Radio, Television and Film
Jenna Holtzman: My top is from the Buffalo Exchange store in Los Angeles, Paige jeans from T.J. Maxx (born and raised a Maxxinista), wedge sandals BCBG Generation, Aerie lace bralette, Michele watch and Anthropologie necklace.
CF: What outfit or accessory are you coveting to have at the moment?
JH: Jeffrey Campbell Everly spiked ankle boots.
CF: If you could describe your style in one word, what would it be and why?
JH: Versatile. I’ll take a staple piece of clothing like a black skirt and I’ll wear it edgy one weekend and chic the next — you’ll never know I wore it twice. You can find me in anything from leather shorts, a ’70s rock band tank and black suede booties, in an embroidered tunic or rocking my Converse high tops. I basically wear whatever I feel like, whenever it feels right.
CF: Since your majoring in Radio, Television and Film, how do you think that industry influences what you wear?
JH: People in the TV and Film industry tend to make bold style choices and aren’t afraid to speak their minds — I’d like to think I’m the same way. I wear what makes me feel good, and I don’t try to emulate what everyone else on campus is wearing. I’m as confident in a T-shirt and leggings as I am all dolled up because it’s all about how you wear it.
CF: Who do you think has great style and why?
JH: I really love Olivia Palermo’s style.
How To: To emulate this Fashionista’s chic outfit, start off with the accessories. While we tend to undermine their importance, accessories are a very essential part of any outfit. Seek out some statement jewelry from De Petra and add some color with a festive watch or bracelet. For a more classic ensemble, find a pair of white bottoms and pair them with a neutral pair of wedges and casual top. With this look, you’ll be prepared for the haute summer fashion in no time!
