Color combination can either make or break an outfit. This week’s Fashionista decided to go with a white and navy striped tee with a pair of colored jeans in emerald green. These hues completely complement each other. This outfit is perfect for a day out or a casual dinner date! There is no need to dress up this outfit since the hues are already so rich. This color combination is classic, preppy and stylish!

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?
Kaya Birch: Depends in what atmosphere/mood I’m in. One day I can look urban with a twist of hipster, while the next day I’m dressed all feminine and preppy.
CF: What are your favorite places to shop?
KB: I love J.Crew, Ralph Lauren, Brandy Melville, Buffalo Exchange and, of course, March Boutique (that’s where I work).
CF: What is your current fashion obsession?
KB: I absolutely adore flowy pants.
CF: What have you been wearing to keep cool this summer?
KB: My resolution for this summer was to wear all of the dresses that have accumulated in my closet and I’m happy to say that I have worn them all and they have kept me very cool so far.
CF: If you had to choose one item in your closet that you couldn’t live without, what would it be?
KB: It would have to be either this vintage jean jacket I just recently bought or these awesome dark skinny jeans made by Dittos.
CF: Do you have any style advice?
KB: Don’t try so hard to follow trends. If you like something that isn’t quite “in”, don’t be afraid to wear it. You never know; it could be the next big thing!
How To: Get this Fashionista’s outfit by going for the color combination of navy and green. Try a green pair of jeans. Match those jeans with a striped navy tee if you are going for a more casual look. This peplum striped top too would look great with the jeans. If you are looking for an outfit that is more professional or you want to be more dressed up, try this schoolboy blazer in navy.
