Music festivals like Coachella and Lollapalooza have not only become a haven for Lana Del Rey groupies, but for our generation’s trend setters as well. Pictures of Vanessa Hudgens in her Weekend Two outfits are constantly flooding our Tumblr dashboards and Pinterest feeds.
I spotted this Fashionista taking a brisk walk on one of the cooler days here in Florida. I immediately took notice of her pants and asked her if she was going Weekend One or Two. She laughed and began to tell me about how the pants she was wearing were her moms from the ’90s. What I loved about her look was that it truly embodied everything that a boho-chic outfit aims to be. Her pants stood out not only because they fit the trend, but also because they were real deal.
Name: Victoria Torres
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing?
Victoria Torres: Today I decided to match an olive bandeau with my mom’s blue, ombré harem pants from the ’90s.
CF: Describe your style in three words or less.
VT: Eccentric, boho-chic and edgy. It really comes down to how lazy I am and what the weather is like.
CF: Is there any one item you would describe essential to your wardrobe?
VT: Naturally it gets extremely hot in South Florida during the summer, so I often aim to wear some sort of bralette or bandeau. I’ll either wear one by itself or under a top that shows it off.
CF: Where do you purchase the majority of your clothing?
VT: When I’m not wearing Urban Outfitters, you can definitely find me sporting something vintage. Sometimes it’ll be from a thrift store and other times right out of my mom’s closet.
CF: What advice would you give to someone who doesn’t have experience thrift shopping?
VT: Keep an open mind. Sometimes an old battered shirt can transform into a sick vintage tank.
How To: To imitate this look, pair a nude bralette, easily attainable at Urban Outfitters, with a funky pair of trousers from Zara. Feel free to play around with the look by maybe wearing a fringe bandeau from Topshop with more subtle lounge pants, also from Urban Outfitters.
