If there was thing you could see upon first laying eyes on this Fashionista—besides her being fashion forward—it is that she is an art major. Every detail of her outfit looked carefully selected and implemented in an aesthetically pleasing manner. So, it comes as no surprise to find out that she is, indeed, a graphic design major. And despite the fact that her respected art stems from virtual design, she seems to know a thing or two about the art of dressing as well, blending together prints, colors and accessories in an effortless and chic result.
Name: Santana Lopez
Major: Graphic Design
CollegeFashionista: What do you consider when you get dressed (ie. weather, occasion, mood etc.) in the morning?
Santana Lopez: Mood is probably my only major influence. It mainly helps me determine what colors I want to try out that day!
CF: Do you have a favorite designer to wear?
SL: I guess the closest thing to a favorite designer of mine would be Lauren Conrad. She always has classic pieces that are very versatile and comfortable.
CF: How long has fashion been a part of your life?
SL: Fashion has been an influence in my life throughout the better part of my late teen years until now. It allowed me to experiment in those crucial years.
CF: Would you say that you have a style muse?
SL: My LIFE muse is probably Zooey Deschanel. So yeah, I guess I have one.
CF: How has your look evolved over the years?
SL: I’ve been through many phases since my tween-age years, but I think I’ve always tried to do something weird with it. From rocking boys clothes, to wearing horrible pattern and color combos. Weird can be both good and bad.
How to: Floral prints are one of the easiest ways to add femininity to an outfit and make you feel—well, down-right pretty. So, when you incorporate this print with a dress, you are undoubtedly going to strike a feminine note. To keep your outfit streamlined, don a pair of kitten heels or flats for the day or pair it with some sandals to avoid the heat wave. Add a pair bright colored sunnies for the final touch!
