This Fashionista’s classic, clean and comfortable look encompasses everything a girl needs heading into midterms. Her sport-inspired sweater is just bulky enough to burrow down in the library with while retaining its proverbial put-together nature.
CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your personal style?
Tori Hall: I would say that my style is not limited to one or two genres, but rather how I’m feeling that day. I usually don’t pick out what I’m gong to wear until the morning of.
CF: Where do you look to for fashion inspiration?
TH: I admire all style that comes from New York City, which hardly narrows the types of style down since you can be whoever you want to be in New York … and that includes dress!
CF: What are your must-have designers this spring?
TH: I like BCBGMAXAZRIA because they are always on the cutting edge of what’s fashionable that year. Free People is awesome for casual/comfortable wear, while still trying to look cute. Lastly, French Connection has those timeless/classic outfits and designs that will never go out of style and one can wear at multiple types of occasions.
How to: To achieve this look, start with one of spring’s latest trends: athletic wear. Adidas, striped zip-up hoodies are no longer confined to post-workout wear. Tommy Hilfiger and Marc by Marc Jacobs both offered their take on athletic wear on the runway at fall Fashion Week 2013. This varsity sweater from Forever 21 is the perfect, subtle ode to the athletic trend. Add your most comfortable pair of skinny jeans and combat boots and you’re ready to kick some serious midterm behind.
