I spotted this Fashionista as I was walking to class and I couldn’t help myself but compliment her on her colorful and fashion-forward outfit. The light pink shorts with oversized pockets are to die for and her floral crop top with a pop of pink complements the high-waisted shorts perfectly. When a Fashionista carries a bag to class instead of a plain backpack, it looks like she is walking with a purpose.
Name: Tara Goutermout
CollegeFashionista: Fill me in on your outfit! What are you wearing?
Tara Goutermout: My shirt is from Forever 21 and I got the shorts from Aritzia. I’m wearing Tory Burch flats and I carry my books in my Longchamp bag. I always wear my go-to Free People sunglasses.
CF: What’s your favorite item in your closet?
TG: A pair of shorts that I cut myself. I love DIY projects because I can make the piece of clothing the exact way I like it and I can show off my inner fashion designer. I can make a lot of outfits with them.
CF: If you could wear a celebrity’s closet, whose would it be?
TG: I don’t really follow celebrities but I love to raid my roommate’s closet. She has the best wardrobe!
CF: What is your favorite store to shop at?
TG: Free People because all of their pieces are really versatile.
CF: Does your style change between seasons?
TG: Yes. In the winter I’m influenced my ski style and I like to dress a little more bohemian with baggier pieces.
CF: How would you describe your style in three words?
TG: Comfortable, easy and colorful.
How To: Interested in trying this look out? Begin with a pair of pretty pink shorts as the base of your outfit. You’re going for a classic and girly look so pair your shorts with a floral crop top. Make sure there is some pink on your shirt so it complements the shorts. A pair of white flats is an easy find, just make sure they aren’t an off-white color. An oversized bag is essential for everyday life activities, especially for carrying books when walking to class. It’s fun to have a bright-colored bag, but save that for a special occasion. You want either a black or brown bag for class because these colors go with any outfit. Remember to make sure that the bag is sturdy enough to hold all of your heavy books! A pair of cat-eye glasses is a fun way to add a girly touch to your outfit.
