Name: Kimmy Immanuel

Year: Sophomore

CollegeFashionista: What spring fashion trends are you excited to try this season?

Kimmy Immanuel: I am definitely looking forward to wearing sundresses, high-waisted shorts and of course, sandals. I love spring fashion because it is fun, bright and comfortable.

CF: How would you describe your style, and how does living near NYC alter it?

KI: With my style, I sort of make it up as I go. I tend to go with the flow, and I usually buy anything that fits well and is comfortable. Although the street style in NYC is crazy, when I am in the city a lot, I have to be prepared for any type of weather. My shoes definitely have to be pretty durable as well. 

CF: What are some of your favorite accessories? 

KI: My favorite accessory is colored handbags. I especially love my red Tignanello handbag. I also really love long earrings that I can match with different pieces of my outfits. 

How To: If you want to learn how to pull off this edgy outfit, look out for these essential pieces. These awesome harem parts are from Urban Outfitters, and you can get the exact ones here. Grab any red camisole like the one this Fashionista is wearing from Forever 21. Her bat-winged sweater is from Urban Outfitters as well, and you can buy the exact one on sale here. Her contrast wedge heels are from Soda but you can get similar ones from Steve Madden. The final touch is to add a black statement necklace that matches the pants. Any black necklace will do such as this one from Forever 21.
