The first thing I noticed about this outfit was the beautiful pink pale knitted sweater. Besides being beautiful, it seems very comfortable. The leggings, which have stunning colors, are DIY and are definitely eye-cathing. This Fashionista chose to combine an oversized, pale pink, knitted sweater with a pair of galaxy print leggings. The result is a soft and girly look, yet still elegant. The oversized sweater over a skinny pant or legging is also a popular look, both on the runways and the streets.

CollegeFashionista: I really like your sweater and leggings. Where did you get them?
Nathália Moreira: The trousers I didn’t buy at a special or fancy place. It was in a random store, in one trip to Campos do Jordão – SP. But it is really comfortable. These leggings were black, and one day I was wearing it at a galaxy print workshop in a Design event. Accidentally, I sat on the bleach and this ruined my pants! But then I used the situation as an advantage to experiment with the technique and it works really well!
CF: Are you used to DIY? What tips you can give to the ones who are afraid to take a risk and personalize their pieces?
NM: Yes, I love it! I would say if you can, make it. Sometimes you have some clothes that you never wear and can end up stunning! Even if the results come out wrong, you were not even using it in the first place. I would say to practice the technique with a piece of old fabric first, or something like that. Then, when you go to replicate on your piece, you have more of a chance to make it right. It is really good to wear an outfit with clothes that you make by yourself because no one else will have the same item.
CF: Who or what influences your style?
NM: I like to observe people, how they dress out, even on the streets. I like different things.
How To: The keys for the success in this outfit are the beautiful silhouette combined with stunning colors. You can try it with a beautiful sweater in soft colors, like these by Forever 21, over a legging with galaxy print, like these by Urban Outfitters. Definitely a statement piece.
