Fashionista Spotlight

If you know me, you must know that my obsession for florals can’t be matched. You can catch me wearing floral print anything during all four seasons — even fall! Though it’s not traditionally what you think of when fall fashion is concerned, it’s definitely a trend you can definitely incorporate in the chillier season, as long as it’s in small doses. This week’s Fashionista clearly proves flowers in the fall are fashionably fine.

CollegeFashionista: What kinds of clothing styles do you find yourself gravitating towards?

Angela Mukkadan: I feel like it depends on the day. I like anything feminine—floral prints and softer colors. I don’t think I have a particular style, but I like to keep my outfits simple. I’m not big on accessorizing, I usually just throw on a pair of earrings and I’m all set.

CF: Who are some of your favorite fashionable celebrities?

AM: I love Zoe Saldana’s everyday style! I feel like anything she wears looks amazing on her and can be worn by virtually any woman. Kate Winslet is another celebrity I look up to when it comes to fashion. She always walks down the red carpet in beautiful dresses — she’s a perfect example of classic beauty!

CF: If you had $500 to spend on a shopping spree, where would it be and why?

AM: It’s a toss up between Banana Republic and Kate Spade. There’s something so classic about Banana Republic’s clothing, especially their jackets. Since I’m all about simplicity, Banana Republic is the ideal place to find streamlined clothing with a fashionable edge. Then there's Kate Spade, which has the prettiest accessories with such impeccable detailing. How can you not want to spend $500 there?!

How To: It only takes a few fall essentials to imitate this Fashionista’s outfit. This floral dress from Urban Outfitters is seasonally ambiguous, so take advantage of it this fall by pairing it with a military-inspired parka. Let these gray socks peek out of your brown biker boots to add a soft touch on such a tough looking boot. Tie your ensemble together with this color blocked purse from Anthropologie for a sweet autumnal look.
