Amidst the gloomy Wisconsin weather this Fashionista found a way to display color in the midst of the morning. The pops of color stood out to me in contrast to her all-black attire. One would not be surprised that coincidentally she is one of the officers of UW’s own La Mode Fashion Club. Being a Fashionista, she definitely predicts upcoming trends with ease.

How To: To attain this Fashionista’s edgy look, pair some leather shorts and black tights for a lasting impression. To add some femininity to this look, wear a leather skirt instead of shorts. What truly pulls this look together is her long black coat and statement bag, both a go-to for walking around school all day.
