Fashionista Spotlight

Spring has sprung which means opening up the box of brights, stripes and metallics. This Fashionista, spotted on a brisk walk to class, is comfortable yet chic. Her look is effortless but still adds a spring vibe with the stripes, combination of white and the metallic Sperry Topsider boat shoes. What better outfit combination than preppy for spring because it adds comfort without wearing sweats and yoga pants. White jeans are also a big trend right now for spring and this Fashionista knows how to rock it. Don't be discouraged with keeping them clean though, just invest in a Tide To-Go pen and wear that white fearlessly.

CollegeFashionista: Who is your style inspiration?

Isabel Johnson: I definitely follow Kate Hudson and Reese Witherspoon for style inspiration.

CF: How would you describe your everyday outfit?

IJ: I like to keep my everyday style classy and casual.

CF: What is on your shopping list for spring?

IJ: I want some more Sperry's to add to my wardrobe. I love colored jeans and Ray Bans. I might accent this with a watch but I haven't decided yet.

CF: Where do you shop most often and why?

IJ: I shop often at Nordstrom because it can be affordable and they have a wide range of styles to chose from.

CF: What is your statement piece or article you cannot live with out?

IJ: I won't be able to live without my bright blue jean jacket or my knee high boots because the weather here is so unpredictable.

How To: Get this Fashionista's look by making it your very own. Sperry Top-sider offers many different styles and color combinations to begin this preppy look. Especially a metallic boat shoe will attract the sunshine and brighten up any outfit. Once you have the shoe the look becomes your own and then all that's left is a great fitting pair of white jeans. I recommend going up one size if the boyfriend fit is what you are looking for but otherwise a slim fit will work great to roll up or keep tight around the ankle. Even FabSugar offers some suggestions about the classic preppy look for spring. The options are endless but don't forget to make it your own.
