Being a fashion design major, I am lucky enough to be surrounded by some of the most creative students on campus! This Fashionista and I are in two classes together and it’s obvious that she always takes great care when putting her outfits together. In this week’s post, this Fashionista is right on the mark by mixing two big trends of the summer: chambray and jumpsuits.
Name: Tierra Virden
Major: Fashion Retailing
CollegeFashionista: What’s your favorite clothing item in your closet?
Tierra Virden: My favorite item in my closest is my maroon colored blazer from The Limited.
CF: What will you be wearing this fall?
TV: I will definitely be wearing a lot of blazers and boots in the fall.
CF: What is your favorite fashion season and why?
TV: My favorite fashion season is winter because I love the boots, the blazers, the scarves and colors. It takes a lot more to put an outfit together too, whereas for hot weather it’s not as challenging.
CF: Where do you get style inspiration?
TV: My inspiration definitely comes from celebrities and fashion magazines. My favorites are Vogue and Elle!
How To: Jumpsuits are great for dressing up or down and I think this Fashionista finds the perfect balance between the two. Her clutch, necklace and shoes are in earth tones that keep it grounded, but the leather wedges add a little daytime glamor. If wedges aren’t your idea of casual try oxfords instead! To dress up a jumpsuit for a night out with friends add a fitted blazer and bold earrings with a pulled back hairstyle.
