Hooray for May! And for all of the fun bright colors and patterns we get to wear during the month. Two major designers that I take energetic inspiration from are Peter Pilotto and Mary Katrantzou. Both happen to be masters of the perfect summertime dress. This Fashionista seems to be catching on as well.
Name: Lauren Wetherhead
CollegeFashionista: What is your favorite way to accessorize?
Lauren Wetherhead: Lately I have loved wearing rings. They are super easy to double up and layer. I also tend to layer tons of bracelets on as well. If I am going for a simpler look, I like to choose a dainty gold necklaces.
CF: If you could shop in any city, where would it be?
LW: This is a tough one. I would probably choose New York City since it is the fashion capital. Runner up would have to be Los Angeles, and in third I’d say San Diego. We go to San Diego every year and I love to save up a bit of money so I can splurge while I am there.
CF: What is your favorite season to shop for?
LW: My favorite season to shop for is summer. It is the time when I can mix and match more of my clothes. During winter I feel like I have few clothes because quality and warmth is more important than quantity.
CF: What item of clothing do you love to wear most in summer?
LW: I like to spend all my days in bathing suits. I am always down for a cute bikini.
How To: This Fashionista found both her dress and shoes at a local consignment store and added on a long stone necklace and a short personalized necklace for accessories. Be on the lookout for vibrant-printed dresses no matter where you shop this summer and remember the brighter and bolder the print, the better.
