Fashionista Spotlight

During our recent Missouri heat wave, Fashionistas all over campus have been switching back and forth between shorts and tights. But every Fashionista knows that sequins are appropriate for every occasion and season. They are like the champagne of the closet and they look good on everyone. Spicing up sequins is easy but transitioning sequins into daytime wear proves to be the hard part. This Fashionista sealed the deal with a sequin beaded skirt and a cool pair of neutral boots.

College Fashionista: Tell me about what you're wearing today.

Ashley Aspinwall: I got this skirt on Cyber Monday from All Saints. I had to figure out a way to wear it during the daytime because I was too excited to wait till I had an event. I paired it with a Gap turtle neck, some Jeffrey Campbell boots, and an Alexander Wang bucket bag to dress it down.
