Fashionista Spotlight
As December continues to roll on, sweater weather is in full force upon us! Whether you are cozying up with your books in the library or spending a day in the city with friends, a sweater and boots are two of the easiest things to put on to stay nice and warm. This season, I have been in love with simple outfits that have one accent statement piece. This Fashionista shows off her classic style roots with a fitted knit sweater paired effortlessly with a pair of skinnies and statement ankle booties, which are the perfect way to dress up any outfit!

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your personal style?
Lanie Woods: My style is preppy and classic, with an occasional trendy element. I love simple, clean-cut clothes that never go out of style like a great pair of riding boots or a white button-down. I am a huge J.Crew addict—their clothing really embodies the style I love, and walks the classic/trendy line so perfectly.
CF: Who and where do you look to for style inspiration?
LW: I read a ridiculous number of fashion blogs and get a great deal of inspiration from those and Pinterest. Other than that I really love the classic style of ladies like Olivia Palermo, Sarah Vickers, Reese Witherspoon and Alexa Chung. 
CF: What has been your favorite trend this fall? And what is a trend you have seen, but haven’t tried yet?
LW: A trend that I’ve been into this season is boyfriend jeans. I’m typically a skinny jeans girl so they’re a bit out of my comfort zone, but once I tried them I fell in love. They’re so comfortable and look great with flats and ankle booties. As far as a trend I’ve seen but haven’t tried, I love the over the knee boot trend, I just think they look so chic! I’m fairly short so I feel like they would swallow me, but they look so great on taller girls! 
CF: What is your favorite season to dress for and why?
LW: Overall, I would say fall is my favorite season to dress for. I love the easiness of being able to throw on a pair of skinny jeans, riding boots and a sweater, and instantly feeling put together. I’m also a big layering person and love adding a scarf or cardigan to complete a look.There’s just so much more versatility in fall clothing that I can’t get enough of.
How To: Ankle booties are such a good way to make a casual outfit a little dressier, and look effortlessly chic. To get this Fashionista’s look try combining a sweater, like this one from J.Crew, skinny jeans and ankle booties.
