Name: Paulina Young

Major: Physiological Science

Year: Junior

CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing?

Paulina Young: I’m wearing a Club Monaco sweater, a Forever 21 chambray shirt, Zara jeans, Seychelles heels and Zara bag.

CF: How would you describe your personal style?

PY: When making wardrobe choices, I try to go for casual and comfortable clothes that don’t sacrifice style. Mixing a bold piece with simple basics is my usual way of making a statement without saying too much!

CF: Tell us the story behind one of the pieces you are wearing.

PY: I bought the strappy Seychelles heels I’m wearing for my high school prom. It makes me happy when I make purchases that survive year after year of closet purges!

CF: What’s one thing in your wardrobe that you can’t live without?

PY: I would have to say my American Apparel velvet leggings. I absolutely recommend this pair for both comfort and style.

CF: What’s something you’re constantly purchasing right now?

PY: I love neutral-toned sweaters, but I think it’s about time for me to venture into another region of the color spectrum!

CF: Where do you look for stylistic inspiration?

PY: My inspiration primarily comes from fashion blogs. Outfits from Aimee Song (Song of Style), Jenny Ong (Neon Blush) and Bethany Struble’s (Snakes Nest) blogs often end up on my Pinterest boards!

How To: Throw a warm knit over a classic collared button-up shirt and pair them with some colored skinny jeans. Don’t forget to add some bold accessories such as a pair of sophisticated heels, a studded clutch or a statement necklace!
