Fashionista Spotlight

Even while running errands, a true Fashionista wears clothing that expresses her personal and on-trend style. This Fashionista stood out amongst the crowd of college students even in the middle of running her errands because of her comfortable yet cool, basic yet eclectic look. A busy life does not require a fashion enthusiast to sacrifice her style; it just requires her to adjust to a more clever way of piecing clothing items together. From top to bottom, Tahnee’s tousled locks, soft velvet top and cute little heeled booties make for an effortlessly chic look. Her on wide-leg cropped jeans and boxy collarless jacket are trends that allow her to be fashionably comfortable for her busy day. This Fashionista cleverly pieced her outfit together by dressing up her jeans with a classy velvet top, wearing a trendy jacket for warmth, matching her socks with hues from her top and adding personal flavor with her eclectic rings and bracelets. Seeing this Fashionista dress this well while only running errands intrigues me to know more about her fashion philosophy.

How To: If you are thinking what I am thinking, you want to know where you can get a velvet top like this Fashionista’s. Complete the outfit with pieces similar to hers: a cool collarless jacket, classic cropped “mom jeans” and heeled ankle booties. Gray socks would look best with the colors of these pieces and stack on eclectic jewelry you already own.
