CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your personal style?

Lauren Barth: I definitely have a sporty feel with some edge. My style has a lot of menswear inspiration as well. 

CF: What is a staple in your collection?

LB: Oxford shoes for sure. I also have this black moto jacket from H&M that I can literally wear with anything.

CF: What is on your wishlist?

LB: I’m on the lookout for a good pair of black overall shorts. I want the longer ones that go mid-length down the thigh. I think those are more high fashion then the shorter ones.

CF: What are some of your favorite trends right now?

LB: I really like the pastels. As you can tell, this shirt I’m wearing today has pastels and I think they are so easy to work into an outfit. I’m also really big into Zara’s origami skirts or also called wrap skirts.

CF: What’s something you would never be caught dead in?

LB: Peasant blouses with the poofy shoulders. That to me looks like a Halloween look. Also, Birkenstocks. I never understood why that became a trend. 

How To: To achieve this Fashionista’s look, pair your favorite oxfords with a button-down pastel blouse to achieve a true springtime look. If you want to make it edgier, try topping off your button-down with a weather appropriate sweater that complements this look.
