Fashionista Spotlight

I think blazers are always a trend that I find around campus but this Fashionista caught my eye because of her pale pink blazer which stood out in the crowd. Wearing a blazer is a great way to dress up an outfit. By accessorizing it with leather boots and jewelry it makes a cute, ready for class outfit that does not require a huge amount of effort but is so much better than sweatpants and a T-shirt. This week’s Fashionista was found walking outside of the fashion building and was dressed to impress for her class.

Name: Chelsea Dopico

Major: Fashion Merchandising

Year: Junior

CollegeFashionista: How do you dress up an outfit?

Chelsea Dopico: I have definitely been adding accessories and then my watch, which I have one in silver and gold and I’m obsessed with them, and my makeup and my hair.

CF: How does being a fashion merchandising student affect the way that you shop?

CD: Actually with all of the classes that we take I find myself looking more and more into everything that I buy. I’ve definitely learned because I used to buy things a lot more frivolous and now I buy a lot more useful and basic things and I just mix them together and then add in more trendy items. I also look more at how things are made and what they are made of.

CF: How do you accessorize an outfit?

CD: I try to mix accessories, jewelry and scarves.

CF: Do you have any staple pieces that you wear all year long?

CD: Probably my boots. I’m obsessed with boots and wear a pair almost every single day. Then blazers, I like to mix them with everything.

CF: How would you describe your personal style?

CD: Not too trendy, but more classic mixed with trendier things.

CF: Where do you get you style inspiration?

CD: Pinterest and definitely magazines, my favorite magazine is Glamour so I’m always reading that.

How To: Do you want this Fashionista’s trendy ready for class look? Try pairing a colored blazer over a ruffled top. Then add a pair of light brown leather boots and an oversized bag. Finally add a stylish silver or gold watch and add a few key pieces of colorful jewelry.
