Fashionista Spotlight

It is absolutely beautiful outside and happy does not even begin to describe the emotion I feel when the sun finally comes out in Syracuse! This Fashionista is embracing the sunshine by exposing some leg and opting for a light jean jacket that provides just the right amount of coverage for this brisk day. She immediately grabbed my attention due to her outfit’s southern charm. It’s the perfect outfit to welcome the spring with just the right amount of coverage.

Name: Rachel Callahan

Major: Medical Imaging

Year: Freshman

CollegeFashionista: Tell me about the outfit you have on today!

Rachel Callahan: My jacket is from Lucky Brand. My dress and scarf are from Urban Outfitters, and I cant remember where my shoes are from because I’ve had them for so long!

CF: What is your favorite spring trend?

RC: I am really into florals this spring! Everything that I have been buying for my closet has incorporated some level of floral. I think that it is the perfect way to keep any outfit feminine!

CF: How would you define your personal style?

RC: I would definitely say that my style varies from day to day. One day I can be in sweats and the other day I am a total girly girl. I never really stray from those two things though! It is usually one or the other.  

CF: Who is your celebrity style icon and why?

RC: I love Hannah Meron’s style on Pretty Little Liars! She is always put together and completely chic! She is so trendy. I love it.

CF: What is the one thing in your closet that you could not live without?

RC: This denim jacket! I love layering it with practically everything!

How To: If you want to look like an adorable southern belle, the first thing that you must get are a pair of booties! They are great for transitioning into the warmer spring months, while still staying cozy. You will also need a rustic jean jacket. Denim jackets are great for the upcoming months because they are so versatile and can be paired with almost any spring look. This Fashionista’s lace babydoll dress is fabulously accessorized with a cream beret to match. Matching your hat to your dress is a great way to tie your outfit together! However, a soft thin scarf is the item that really gives this type of outfit the wow factor.
