Fashionista Spotlight

This Fashionista exudes confidence with her print-mixing, monochromatic ensemble that effortlessly transitions into spring. She doesn’t need one single color to make a statement. Sometimes it’s best to let the black and white jail-striped pants do the talking.

Name: Lena Hardy

Major: Telecommunications and Film

Year: Senior

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?

Lena Hardy: I would say my style is the perfect combination of classy and edgy. I like to mix and match with color and patterns to explain how I’m feeling on that particular day without saying a word.

CF: Who/what do you look to for fashion inspiration?

LH: Solange Knowles, Rihanna and Kylie Jenner are all women I look up to for fashion. I view their Instagram and Tumblr pages daily for inspiration. 

CF: What are your favorite stores to shop at?

LH: I shop at Madewell, Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, Nordstrom and J.Crew. I also love to go thrifting. I actually go every Thursday with my fashion organization.

CF: How do you stay fashion forward/while staying practical for class?

LH: I try to dress nice everyday because I believe when you look good, you feel good. I try to have outfits already in mind before I wake up so I don’t have to stress about it. 

How To: This look can be replicated in a multitude of monochromatic combinations. When print-mixing, be sure to choose prints with varying sizes. These thick, striped pants from ASOS would look great paired with this printed button-down from American Apparel. Top off the look with all gold jewelry and black booties and there’s no stopping the head turns at every corner of campus.
