Fashionista Spotlight

Tartan is a big trend everywhere at the minute, and there are so many ways to style it. It can be dressed up for a formal event, or can be styled casually. This Fashionista styled a tomboyish yet urban look by layering her tartan shirt with a vest, wearing ripped skinny jeans and Jordans. She then added feminine accessories to the outfit. Wearing a big studded handbag and chunky jewelry accented this look perfectly.

Name: Jordan Lowrie

Degree: Fashion Media and Marketing

Year: Freshman

CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing and where is it from?

Jordan Lowrie: My jeans are from H&M as was my black vest. My green tartan shirt was from Pyrex Vision and my Jordans are from a vintage sneaker shop in New York called Premium Laces. My jewelry and bag are from River Island.

CF: What inspires your style?

JL: I absolutely love Marc Jacobs and lots of other designers and their work — but I find my inspiration for my outfits on websites such as Blogger, Blogspot and Tumblr. My style is quite unique and urban and I love looking at these websites to get inspiration for my outfits from all over the world. There are so many different varieties of outfits all over the world and I love looking at global fashion to help inspire my outfits.

CF: What is your favorite item of clothing in your wardrobe?

JL: I’d have to say my favorite item of clothing in my wardrobe is most definitely my little black dress. Black is my favorite color to wear and you can never go wrong with a little black dress! I also love my trainers. They aren’t just for boys to run around in. If they’re paired with jeans or denim shorts, then girls can really rock a pair of trainers and that’s why I love my trainers!

CF: What is next on your shopping list?

JL: I really want a pair of black Timberland boots because again black is my favorite color — and I feel that they’re boots that can be worn all year round. I for sure need a pair of black Timberland boots!

How To: To achieve a look like this Fashionista’s feminine yet tomboyish look, you just have to pick up the right pieces from the right shops for your wardrobe. Tartan shirts are everywhere at the minute and so easy to pick up. If you feel like you don’t want to wear black jeans, add some color to your outfit. Light denim jeans and a big leather jacket will complete the look.
