Fashionista Spotlight

Not only is winter break a time for cuddling up in a blanket by the fire place and shopping for holiday presents, but it’s also a time to plan the perfect date night! Whether it’s a date night with your girls or with a love interest, every true Fashionista knows you must arrive in style. This Fashionista’s ensemble is perfect for night out. You may have noticed lately, the knee socks are so in. I’ve seen many girls wear them with leggings and saddle boots or skirts and booties. They are so versatile for winter and I am convinced that I definitely need a few pairs of knee-high socks in my wardrobe for the upcoming season.

CollegeFashionista: What do you love most about your outfit?

Monica Trejo: I love my earrings. They just add a glamorous feel to my outfit! Even though my blouse and skirt are very casual, I wanted to accessorize to dress my look up a little. 

CF: What is your favorite season for fashion?

MT: As a true California native, I must say summer. I love all of the bright colors that the season brings. I love being able to mix and match all of my crop tops and high-waist shorts because those pieces are so versatile. 

CF: Who inspires your style?

MT: I really like looking at what the latest trends are out right now. I am a big fan of Instagram and following stylists and models to see what they are wearing. When I go shopping I refer back to their style and make it my own. 

How To: This Fashionista rocked her black knee-high socks with a pair of platform booties. Designers are showing off their ’70s flair with platforms lately. Most popularly, Jeffery Campbell’s Lita bootie is the perfect pair for this look. While you can wear knee high socks with almost any bottom, however I love how this Fashionista took a little risk to show off her feminity by wearing a simple black mini skirt. Her ivory chiffon blouse had a whimsical detailing in the pattern. This Fashionista accessorized with chandelier earrings, but for you it may be pearls. Always perfect a look to fit who you are!
