In the midst of winter, many college girls face the inevitable challenge to look cute, while trying to avoid the bulky pile-up of layers necessary to keep warm. While walking around campus in the brisk winter air, I spotted this Fashionista rockin’ a fierce red leather jacket and jet-black combat boots. Despite the cold weather, she managed to stay warm with an edgy flare.
Name: Meghan Myers
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing and where is it from?
Meghan Myers: I am wearing one of my favorite leather jackets from Marshalls, a white Forever 21 scarf, American Eagle dark wash jeans and my jet black combat boots from DWS.
CF: Where do you usually like shop?
MM: I shop a lot at Forever 21, PacSun and American Eagle. I get a lot of my name brand items at Marshalls and DSW because they have a lot of high-end fashion for reasonable prices.
CF: Where do you get your fashion inspiration?
MM: A lot of my fashion ideas come from music, mostly alternative bands and artists. I really love Demi Lovato’s style. She rocks leather and jean jackets, as well as leather pants and skirts. She pulls off the edgy rocker bad girl, without looking like she’s a part of a biker gang. So, I would say Demi’s style definitely inspires mine.
CF: What are some must-have items in your closet?
MM: I would say leather jackets and giant belt buckles. I love belts because they make a statement and are great accessories to any outfit, while holding your jeans up at the same time.
How To: If you’re battling cold weather and need some style inspiration, take some hints from today’s Fashionista. To imitate this look, all you need is a leather jacket. If you want to make a statement by adding a pop of color I recommend this Lucky Brand Harper leather jacket. Any black or white T-shirt would work and some nice dark wash skinny jeans. My personal favorite is American Eagle’s super skinny Jean. To finish off this edgy girl look, top it off with a pair of classic Steven Madden combat boots.
