If there is one article of clothing that I must buy soon; it is the denim vest. Is it because I want to relive the ‘90s. Maybe. Will this be an excuse for me to dance to N’Sync and the Spice Girls? Yes. Should we bring the jelly shoes back? I’m not sure. What I do know is that the denim vest is so versatile, it can pretty much be paired with anything. Try laying it over a cute dress like how this Fashionista did. Then, go to your VHS collection and watch Space Jam, or watch Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and do the “Carlton” dance. I bet this Fashionista knows the Banks family a little too well.
Name: Marsha Banks
Major: English/ Language Arts
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing and where did you get it from?
Marsha Banks: I am wearing a dress from Wet Seal that I got from the Premium Outlets. I actually got my jacket from there, too! My shades are from Forever 21. I got all of this from last summer.
CF: Do you usually like to transition a lot of your clothes into other seasons?
MB: I do. I resell a lot of stuff to Plato’s Closet because I am really into fashion. I am really into sneakers and really into accessories. I bought two of these shades because they have a leopard print of them and as you can tell, I love leopard. And it’s good to have two, just in case if one breaks.
CF: What is the one item in your closet that you can’t live without?
MB: This is a hard one! I will honestly have to say accessories and shoes. I can put on a tank and some jeans, and have a nice purse with a cute pair of shoes. Then, I just have dressed my outfit up!
CF: What are you looking forward to wear in the summer time?
MB: I actually make shorts, like high-waisted shorts and tie-dye. I have an Instagram called Unique_2_Fashion. I sell vintage clothing and resell them, too!
How To: Reminisce with this rag & bone denim vest and place this white graphic tank underneath it. Get excited with accessories, like this Fashionista, by wearing this Deena & Ozzy ears bowler hat! Your younger self will be so proud.
