Fashionista Spotlight

You’re never too old to enjoy a field trip, especially in the heart of New York City. This week, Penn State made Central Park its campus where Fashionistas from all over came together. Penn State students dressed to impress on this winter day, and this Fashionista was no exception. This Fashionista’s look reminds me of my personal fashion inspiration, Blaire Waldorff of Gossip Girl. Blaire is no stranger to Central Park, always wearing her best scarves, tights and winter essentials. This Fashionista does just that.

Name: Olivia Grosso

Major: Marketing

Year: Sophomore

CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing?

Olivia Grosso: My tights are from Nordstrom, and my shoes are from Steve Madden. This bottom is actually a dress from H&M, and my high socks are from Target. 

CF: Who inspires your style?

OG: I love the fashion in Gossip Girl, so basically anything anyone wears in it. 

CF: What is your favorite winter trend? 

OG: I love wearing high socks with boots with either a dress or a sweater over it. The look is casual, but cute and trendy. 

CF: If you could go on a shopping spree anywhere, where would you go?

OG:  My favorite place to shop is Nordstrom, but I think I would pick Urban Outfitters. They have a variety of all my favorite fashion items from great jewelry to sweaters

How To: Recreate this look for the holiday dinners with friends and family in just a few steps. To add more holiday to the outfit, replace the neutral bottoms with sequin ones, especially for a New Year’s dinner. Swap the embellished tights with a black or gray pair, and complete the look with a nude pumps. This outfit will be turning heads while still making it seem like you didn’t try too hard. For an extra chic look, try putting your hair in  low messy bun look with some dark red lipstick, and you’re ready for the season.
