Hey, remember when stripes were popping up all over the place last year? Well they’re still trending, and they show no signs of slowing down in 2013. Then again, a great striped shirt never really goes out of style, and all you have to do is throw it on to add instant cool to your look. This Fashionista epitomizes pure simple chic in her striped T-shirt and jeans, but her fabulous bow-top boots and her very personal necklace—a gift from her sister and her—really make her look stand out.

CollegeFashionista: Describe your personal style in three words.
Jordan Hargrave: Fabulous, interesting and funky.
CF: Tell me about what you’re wearing.
JH: I am wearing caramel brown boots from Charlotte Russe for about $30, a green and white striped shirt from the Loft with a sweetheart neckline, medium-wash jeans from Hermosa, and a 14-carat gold necklace with a cross, Tinkerbell, and my name in Egyptian.
CF: What do you love most about dressing for winter?
JH: I like to layer and I also like boots. Those are my two favorite things. I’m not really a summer person so I like to put on lots of clothes.
CF: If you could choose one person whose closet you could raid, who would it be and why?
JH: Probably Mariah Carey, just for her shoe collection. Her clothes are fabulous too but her shoes take them over the top.
CF: What is one item in your closet you cannot live without?
JH: My shoes because they make my outfits. There’s not such thing as a fabulous outfit without fabulous shoes.
How To: To get this Fashionista’s look, start by pairing a striped T-shirt with jeans. Just add a pair of statement boots with a personal piece from your jewelry collection and you’re all set to conquer the first syllabus day of spring semester…I mean, first day of classes!
