I must admit that I have a huge love for leather jackets, and this Fashionista caught my eye with her dark brown leather jacket and matching brown boots! I love this look because the whole outfit is pretty neutral, with the brown jacket, brown shoes and a brown scarf, but then there’s a pop of a bright pink spring color that makes the outfit fun. Mixing patterns can be very fun and can easily change up your whole look if you’re feeling bored of the clothes in your closet. This Fashionista paired a leopard print scarf with a striped top and it looked trendy and unique without clashing. This outfit is also a perfect example of how layering and accessorizing can really transform an outfit. The Fashionista wore a simple top with blue jeans, but looked really stylish just by adding a few more pieces to her look.

CollegeFashionista: Where’s your favorite place to shop?
Veronica Salazar: I like shopping at H&M because they have great styles for cheap, and I like Dillard’s because I work there so I know where everything is and I get a discount!
CF: What are you excited to wear this Spring?
VS: I’m very excited to be wearing floral prints and dresses this spring.
CF: If you could, what item would you splurge on?
VS: If I could, I would definitely go buy some Valentino pumps in a hot pink color right now.
CF: If you could only wear one color that wasn’t black, what would it be?
VS: If I couldn’t wear black, I guess I would choose white. White goes with everything and it’s easy to accessorize with like black.
How To: Achieving this Fashionista’s look is simple. Start by wearing a plain two colored striped top, it can be pink and white like hers or any two colors, and a pair of your favorite blue jeans. Right now, I’m seeing a lot of chevron and striped patters with colors in the same family, such as light blue paired with dark blue. Add an edgy dark brown leather jacket on top, and accessorize the outfit with a leopard print scarf and matching dark brown laced boots to tie the whole outfit together!
