CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing?

CF: Describe your personal style in three words.

KT: Classy, trendy, chic.

CF: What is your favorite season to dress for and why?

KT: My favorite season to dress for is summer because I love Southern California style. Southern California style is fun, flirty and casual.

CF: If you could choose one person whose closet you could raid, who would it be and why?

KT: I would raid Carrie Underwood’s closet because her style is so classy and chic. I also love country and really admire her taste and confidence in what she wears.

CF: What is one item in your closet you cannot live without?

KT:I cannot live without my skinny jeans.

CF: Where do you get your fashion inspiration?

KT: I get my fashion inspiration from everywhere honestly. If I see a cool color scheme or a nice outfit in a magazine or see a friend in something cute, I try and find it in stores or save it on my “favorite list” that I keep for what I want to buy or what I hope to put together for an outfit someday. I usually post-it note cute and stylish looks that I like.

CF: What’s your favorite thing to wear?

KT: My favorite thing to wear are flowy tops with skinny jeans and boots. I also love maxi-skirts and maxi-dresses.

CF: What advice would you give to other Fashionistas?

KT: I would say follow whatever inspires you and makes you feel beautiful.

CF: What does ‘fashion’ mean to you?

KT: Fashion means more than a certain style or look, it is a lifestyle. If you are confident with the way you look and see something that makes you happy, then wear it. Be an individual and don’t let fashion change you. The person wearing the outfit should own it and create the fashion. 

CF: What is your favorite fall trend this winter?

KT:Sheer long-sleeve tops with collars.

CF: What is your go to date night ensemble?

KT: My date night ensemble usually includes black somewhere in the outfit, but usually whatever I am feeling most confident in. I love dresses for dates too.

How to: In order to replicate this Fashionista’s look, be sure to pair your cutest flats with a super stylish striped maxi-skirt and a colorful cardigan to spice up your look. This winter season it is all about mixing and matching your favorite sweaters and holiday accessories. If  it is too cold to rock a maxi skirt, then you can pair your super stylish outfit with some cute printed leggings or a pair of skinny jeans. Most importantly, don’t forget to add that extra piece that sets you apart from the rest- like your favorite heart necklace or your Grandma’s jingle bell earrings that will bring you good luck!
