I’m always surprised to see students dressed up on Mondays. Most choose to stay in cozy sweats, and pretend like it’s still the weekend. So, when I spotted this Fashionista in her navy corduroy pants and puffer vest I was instantly impressed by her perfect Monday style!
Name: Margaret Anderson
Major: Broadcast Journalism
College Fashionista: What were you wearing today?
Margaret Anderson: On Mondays, I have to dress up for my Advanced Reporting class, so I want to look cute in case I am on camera, but also comfortable because I'm running around campus working on stories! I’m wearing navy corduroy Hue leggings, a cream-colored J.Crew sweater, a navy vest with gold buttons from T.J. Maxx and Target camel-colored riding boots.
CF: Favorite place to shop?
MA: My favorite places to shop are T.J. Maxx, because they have great brands, cheap prices and a variety of items. I also like J.Crew, H&M, Zara and boutiques around the Oxford square.
CF: What's your favorite color to wear?
MA: My favorite colors to wear are white, navy and brown. And anything that glitters!
CF: What is the go-to item in your closet?
MA: My go-to item is my closet is probably an oversize sweater or blouse from J.Crew with a pair of black leggings and boots. The ensemble is comfortable, classic, and can be worn anywhere from class to church!
CF: Favorite makeup brands?
MA: My favorite make-up brand is Smashbox as far as face and eyes go, but Lipstick Queen for lip color.
CF: What is your ‘style mantra’?
MA: My style mantra? If the shirt doesn't fit, don't wear it. I just made that up! But really, it doesn’t matter what label you’re wearing, If it doesn’t fit it won’t be flattering. Don't be afraid to go up a size, you'll look like a total fox when you do!
How To: Margaret’s outfit is perfect for class, errands and everything in-between. Frye boots have gained popularity for their classic styles and durability. Oversized sweaters can be found at essentially any store. A trendy puffer vest is the perfect addition for winter!
