Fashionista Spotlight

This week at Kent State University, most girls and surprisingly some boys have been foaming at the mouth over the news of Mean Girls being added to Netflix. Don’t hate me, but it isn’t one of my favorites. In my opinion, Coco Chanel trumps Glen Coco 24/7, 365. That being said, it pains me just a tad to quote it. On campus, Fashionistas don’t wear pink on Wednesdays; we wear skirts on beautiful sunny days. This week’s Fashionista certainly got the memo when I spotted her sporting a leather circle skirt!

Name: Meghan McCarthy

Major: Fashion Merchandising

Year: Sophomore

CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing?

Meghan McCarthy: My striped shirt is Ralph Lauren. I purchased my skirt from Dillard’s, but I’m not entirely sure of the brand! My tights and collar are from Target and by bag is Aldo. Finally, my ankle boots are from PacSun.

 CF: What do you plan on doing with your degree in Fashion Merchandising?

MM: Hopefully I end up in New York! I haven’t narrowed it down yet, but I’m really leaning towards something in marketing, advertising or PR. I know that’s really broad!

 CF: Do you have a go-to item in your closet?

MM: I would say this white shirt that I have. It’s super simple. The top of the garment is cotton and from the bust down it is leather laser-cut.  It can go with anything!

 CF: Where do you go for style inspiration?

MM: Aside from magazines, I love Every morning when I wake up I check out the site for the latest street style and runway trends.

 CF: What trend are you most excited about for this season?

MM: I have this maxi dress in mind that I really want. The top of it has that concave style tank that is really sporty. I like the sporty trend.

How To: Don’t fret, fashion enthusiasts. You too can rock this Fashionista’s look! First, get printed T-shirt for a solid skirt or a plain T-shirt for a printed skirt. You don’t want to look bland, or crazy! Leather is a trend, so bulk up. If the weather is chilly throw on a pair of opaque tights; if Mother Nature is pleasant, go bare! After all, it is spring. Finally spruce up your polished look with a statement collar, bag and chic pair of boots.
