The first few weeks of fall semester don’t really seem like fall down here in Burbank. For those of you who live in warm cities, it can be a little difficult to come up with an outfit under expecting weather. This Fashionista knows how to work with the weather and be fresh, but still fashionable.
Name: Krystal Flores
CollegeFashionista: What was your inspiration for your outfit?
Krystal Flores: My inspiration was mainly on how the weather was going to be like, so that shaped the way my outfit was going. I wore this strapless denim top for the heat so I can be fresh. Also, the chambray peplum flatters the figure. I paired it with black jeans to create some contrast and threw on some brown booties.
CF: What was the inspiration for your accessories today?
KF: Since this is a strapless top, I felt I needed something chunky so it wouldn’t look so bare. I put this bronze-gold statement necklace that I felt complemented my outfit and I also added a chain from my purse to make it look like it’s apart of the necklace. I’m wearing a tan wrapped watch to match it and the bandana to make it a little different.
CF: What was your inspiration for your hair style?
KF: I’ve been starting to learn how to do my hair in different ways, so I have been watching tutorials on how to do pin-up and ’50s hair styles and I added the bandana to give it that look.
CF: Where do you get your every day inspiration from?
KF: Usually it’s just from anything that catches my attention, but mainly from television shows and how they dress. A big inspiration to me are ’80s movies. I just love the way they used to dress.
CF: What is your style guide?
KF: If I go basic on the bottom, I should go crazy on the top and if I go crazy on the bottom, I should go basic on the top. Never both or it’ll look either too crazy or too boring.
How To: Who doesn’t have black jeans and a denim or chambray top in their closet? I’m sure almost everyone does because both pieces are very versatile and can be worn all year long. They look great together, so pairing them up is never a fashion faux pas. Add to the look with a statement necklace to give it a little pop and try something new with your hairstyles, play with your accessories. Don’t be scared to take a risk!
