Fashionista Spotlight

This Fashionista was caught perfectly layering a cute fall sweater and adding statement pieces to her classic look. With fall turning into winter, layering is a great way to keep warm while walking around on campus so that you can un-layer when you’re dying of the heat that The Cathedral of Learning has up to what seems to be 80 degrees on any given day.

CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing?
Heather McDowell: H&M sweater and pants, Forever 21 blouse, Steve Madden flats and Sorrelli jewelry.

CF: How would you describe your personal style?
HM: My style is classic with a bit of the unexpected thrown in – adding something contemporary and fun to timeless pieces keeps things interesting.

CF: Where are your favorite places to shop?
HM: Zara, ASOS and H&M are definitely my favorites.

CF: What do you plan on wearing for the holidays this season?
HM: I plan to wear lots of oversized, chunky knits and leather-look pants!

CF: Whose wardrobe would you love to switch with?
HM: Ashley Olsen. Hands down.

How to: Looks like this Fashionista's can be put together by laying any assortment of items. Urban Outfitters has hundreds of cozy sweaters that are great for layering and Ralph Lauren is always a go-to for button ups to layer underneath. Scarves, statement necklaces and oversized sweaters or blazers are always great pieces to use when layering and look great while you're still comfortable studying for finals!
