Fashionista Spotlight

Rain hits the pavement of Kent State University and every girl on campus secretly jumps with joy, to be able to whip out her rain boots. Rain boots are a staple in every woman’s closet that can go from season to season without looking strange. They come in all different colors, styles and patterns, giving every girl an option to stay dry in April showers. I love how classic and chic this Fashionista looks. Taking on an all black and white ensemble and pairing it with simple black Hunter boots.

CollegeFashionista: What is your favorite trend right now?

Rosina Grisanti: My favorite trend right now is the pastel trend. I love that it is everywhere for spring/summer. Not only is it in clothing but I’ve seen it in accessories and shoes as well. I just recently bought a pointed toe mint flat (my favorite pastel color). The light mint color goes perfectly with tan skin and blonde hair.

CF: What are some of your favorite stores to shop?

RG: I love GUESS, Nordstrom and ALDO. When I go shopping I look for a great quality and style more than the low price. If something is of great quality like Guess or Nordstrom, I will buy it—no matter the price.

CF: Where do you get your fashion inspirations?

RG: I love browsing Pinterest, they have amazing outfit ideas and you can always find out the new trends from the most pinned pins. I also religiously read Harper’s Bazaar. I like to look at the new ads that designers put out and get ideas.

How To: I love the classic and simple look this Fashionista put together. I always say when you have nothing to wear, wear black and white. To imitate this outfit, take a pair of short black Hunter boots, black harem pants, black and white striped crop top and a leather jacket. If you want to add a pop of color to the outfit try a jean jacket, nothing goes better with black and white then jean.
