Let’s face it – some people are just too afraid to go bold when they are getting dressed. A lot of us can’t bare the idea of mixing prints, bright colors or steering from the comfort of a simple all black ensemble. This Fashionista has other ideas in mind. Keeping it cool on the top, her cream tank emphasizes her feminine style. The bottom however, tells a different story. Her printed skinny mini jeans are the perfect way to add some pop to her look (especially with the zip option at the bottom). Her metallic loafers also give her some shine allowing her to walk comfortably in style.
Name: Olivia Elizabeth
Major: Public Relations
CollegeFashionista: What do you like most about your outfit today?
Olivia Elizabeth: I love the printed pants. I wear so many different types of prints and I can’t stay away from them. Then again, the loose-fitting shirt is great too.
CF: Who or what influences your style in general?
OE: I don’t have specific people who influence my style, but I would say my comfort level plays a large role in what I wear. I have to be comfortable especially in the summer when it’s so hot nearly every day.
CF: Do you prefer printed pants to solid pants?
OE: That’s a tough one. I love solid pants in bright colors but I also love a printed pant. Over the last few years I’ve accumulated solid pants in almost every color and I don’t know how I ever lived without them. I have just started growing my collection of printed pants and I love them.
CF: What is your summer staple item?
OE: Maxi dresses. They are so comfortable and I could live in them everyday. I love how they can be dressed up or down so easily and any body type can pull them off.
