I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m ready for the next season. Florals have always been a popular street style trend, but last fall’s fashion week proved to have big things in store for spring 2014. Top designers like Christine Dior, Stella McCartney and Giorgio Armani have fantastic floral trends for us to add in our closet. Spring will come sometime next month, but this Fashionista is not waiting. To her, the time for florals is now and I couldn’t agree anymore.
Name: Keo Hall
Major: Allied Health/Pre-Nursing
CollegeFashionista: Where are you headed and what are you wearing today?
Keo Hall: I’m on my way to class. My blazer is from Forever 21 and my boots are from Aldo. My necklace and jeans are from Express. My watch is by Michael Kors and this is my Aggie ring, of course.
CF: As a senior, have you noticed a change in your style from when you were a freshman?
KH: Freshman year I was all about matching. My colors had to be exact and my shoes had to go with my outfit completely. Now, I still take my time when choosing what to wear, but I’ve learned to be more relaxed about it. My style today is urban mixed with girly. I love my blacks, and gold is also a favorite of mine too.
CF: If you could only wear one accessory for the rest of your life, which would that be? Why?
KH: I would trade in all the accessories in the world and keep my Aggie ring. This piece of gold is meaningful and sleek. No necklace, bracelet or purse can compare.
CF: Out of all your favorite celebrities, whose closet has the most must-haves?
KH: Angela Simmons. She’s my go-to for the best trends.
CF: Heels or flat shoes?
KH: Heels. Even though I hate walking in them, they can make the simplest outfit look so much better.
How To: When it comes to choosing your favorite florals, size doesn’t matter. Fill your closet with large and small prints from a simple clutch to perfectly fitted pencil skirt. And like I’ve suggested in previous articles, play around with mixing prints and patterns. Wear your large and small prints together. Also, learning about a color wheel can help. You’d be surprised at how many big, bold colors actually go great together.
