This week's Fashionista is all about feeling comfortable, looking stylish, and wearing bold accessories during this cold and windy winter. She is drawn to loose shirts, unique-colored leather jackets like her purple one, and of course a pair of fabulous boots in replacement of those old winter boots shoved in the back of the closet. You can definitely say Alaina's personal style involves feeling comfortable, but at the same time looking fashionable with some staple bold items that she owns, in this case, that adorable headband.
Over the years, we have seen many trend setters pull off all kinds of hats from the fascinators at the royal wedding, to those gigantic floppy hats seen at the Kentucky Derby. In the winter, people tend to bundle up and hide their outfit under loads of layers to keep warm, but not this Fashionista. She likes to be able to wear her ensemble that she put together and show it off to people, but of course stay warm at the same time–which is why she wore this headband to keep her ears warm. The knitted floral details and colors on her headband are just the right touch to make a bold statement. Since it is winter, she has chosen to layer her loose tops so that she can transition a summer-looking outfit, to an all year round outfit. A great example of a designer who also loves loose fitted clothing with bold accents and colors is 3.1 Phillip Lim.
Here's how this Fashionista gets her inspirations for fashion:
Name: Alaina Selvaggio
Major: Marketing Communications with a focus in Public Relations
College Fashionista: What do you love about this outfit that you chose?
Alaina Selvaggio: I love the outfit I chose so much just because it's comfortable, loose fitting, and includes a bold accent to make it a nice ensemble overall.
CF: What things inspire your interest in fashion and in putting outfits together?
AS: I love looking at gossip magazines and seeing what the celebrities are wearing. Other people inspire me to try an item I would not normally wear, and seeing them pull it off makes me believe that maybe I can as well.
CF: What is a staple item that every Fashionista, like yourself, should have in their closet?
AS: One staple item every girl should have in their closet is a loose shirt for when they don't feel like caring about their stomach looking unflattering throughout the day. It's easy and so much more comfortable.
