Fashionista Spotlight

When people hear the term “Fashionista,” a stereotypical image of a girl in high heels and faux fur might come to mind. But some girls like to kick it in sneakers and a snapback hat. In my opinion, this doesn’t make them any less chic; especially when their outfit is balanced and put together. Today’s Fashionista plays with color and texture in her look while staying true to her sporty street look. She buttons her plaid shirt all the way up, mixing a preppy vibe with the grungy skater feel of her outfit. Read below to learn about this cool Fashionista’s style.

Major: Film

CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing?

Nicole Cobb: I’m wearing black Vans sneakers, some blue Uniqlo pants, a Uniqlo plaid shirt, a vintage acid wash jean jacket and a Maverick snapback.

CF: How would you describe your style?

NC: Whatever I have around.

CF: Where do you shop?

NC: Just kind of everywhere; I shop at a lot of thrift stores.

CF: Do you have a favorite season for fashion?

NC: Fall is my favorite because I get to wear coats and layers, but I’m not freezing.

How To: This Fashionista’s look is super easy to put together since it’s made up of comfy college staples that you likely already have in your wardrobe. Pair colored skinnies with a flannel shirt and throw on your favorite snapback (perfect for a bad hair day). If you want, exchange the denim jacket for a varsity jacket. It’s freezing out there and the latter will keep you warmer and cozier.
