Fashionista Spotlight

If I had to narrow my fall wardrobe down to three pieces that are the most important for a chilly fall day, it would be my black J Brand jeans, vintage-inspired pashmina scarf and my Jimmy Choo biker boots. Though it’d be tough to pass up my favorite BB Dakota jacket, the boots and scarf go a long way. I spotted this adorable Fashionista in the perfect go-to fall uniform. She wore classic black leggings (that go with anything and everything), and a collared shirt-sweater combo with a classic black, trench-like coat. Her “#OOTD” was polished with a rocker-inspired scarf and simple brown boots. She kept everything simple, yet fashion-forward and colorful.

CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing today?

Marlo Marisie: Today I’m wearing a simple white button-down from Express under a bright, teal XXII crewneck sweater along with an H&M skull scarf, Victoria’s Secret leggings and Nordstrom riding boots.

CF: What’s one trend you adore?

MM: I love the oversized sweater look! Regardless of whether the sweater is a little boxy or more slouchy, it’s flattering on all figures! Oversized sweaters are not only super comfy, but they make your bottom half look a lot skinnier. Pair one with leggings or jeans, boots, an infinity scarf and jewelry and you’ll be the cutest and comfiest girl on campus! 

CF: What’s one trend you try to stay away from?

MM: This might not be a trend, but it’s a look: sweats. You will only find me wearing sweatpants and a frumpy sweatshirt in my house. People always question why I dress up or dress fashionably all the time and my answer is always, “I never know who I’m going to meet!” It could be a future employer, your future husband or your favorite singer…we live in the city, so the possibilities are endless! 

How To: If you’re buzzing about this adorable Fashionista’s outfit, it’s simple. Finding the perfect pair of brown boots, black leggings or colorful sweater is a simple feat, especially when new fall pieces are constantly arriving in stores. To dress it up, try switching out the brown boots for fun, closed toe pumps. Add a top knot and a fun lipstick color to spice things up, yet keep things girly. In the end, this Fashionista was spot on, she continued to look cute despite fall’s dreary weather.
