Fashionista Spotlight

There’s nothing more exiting than finding a Fashionista doing her own take on your typical sundress. I doubt anyone can argue against the fact that flirty dresses are the easiest and most fun pick for a summer day here in Madison, which is why I think it’s important to add your own twist and really make it unique. Whether you’re headed to work or just to the terrace for an afternoon of fun, I strongly advise stepping out of your flip flops and into something a bit more edgy!

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your personal style?

Allison Amateis: Very casual and relaxed. I like to be comfortable and still look good.

CF: What do you feel most comfortable in?

AA: I have to say something exactly like what I’m wearing today. Sundresses are my go-to in the summer. They're comfortable, light and can always be dressed down or up depending on the occasion.

CF: What inspires your style the most?

AA: My mood has the most effect on my style for sure. If I’m feeling girly, I’ll throw on flip flops with my sundress, but if I’m feeling edgy or feel like taking a risk, like today, I’ll put on a pair of booties or Converse to mix it up a little.

How To: Pick your favorite sundress and think what you would normally wear with it. Then completely kick that to the side. Chose what you would never wear with it and wear exactly that. Strange, I know, but there is nothing more flirtacious and fun than a girly dress paired with an ever so edgy pair of combat boots. Dresses aren’t your thing? Do the exact same thing with a pair of high-waist shorts a simple tank!
