I always love when it gets cold enough to wear my leather jacket again. It's great to get back into those fall essentials that Fashionisa’s love to wear and this week’s Fashionista is a great example. She's taking full advantage of the seasonal change by sporting a leather jacket, leather boots and a leather bag. Along with her jacket and boots, she mixed different color neutrals throughout her ensemble and then added a printed scarf for a nice splash of color.

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your personal style?
Alex Kibbe: I would say that I have a very classic, preppy style collectively. However, I do like to mix it up occasionally and combine classic pieces with trendy, fashion forward items to give my look a new pop for the season.
CF: What's your fall must have item?
AK: I've always been such a bag girl. I never feel like I can have enough! With that being said, my fall must have is my black Michael Kors travel tote. It's not only the perfect size, but the best accessory for any look.
CF: Where's your favorite place to shop?
AK: One of my favorite places to shop is the Gap. I can always find classic, basic pieces that are perfect for my wardrobe. I also love Marshalls for a great designer find!
CF: Where do you get your style inspiration?
AK: I would say that I get a lot of my inspiration from celebrities. I've always loved Jennifer Anniston; she always looks fabulous! I try to emulate my own personal style through my favorite A-listers!
CF: What's your favorite current trend?
AK: I'm a huge fan of the colored and printed denim. I think they offer a nice variety for every wardrobe!
