Fashionista Spotlight

Fall favorites are coming to a close, making a way for winter wear. This week I focused on looking for a stylish Fashionista that just happened to be wearing something that was on my fall favorite’s wish list. I spotted this week’s Fashionista wearing a royal blue peacoat, a black blouse, satchel, jeans and a pair of black boots. I love this look because it is very versatile. This look can be worn to hang out with friends, go to a casual dressed event on campus or even on a date. I would describe this look as very feminine and trendy.

How to: Creating a look similar to Melissa’s is very easy to do. Depending on your own personal style you can decide whether you want to make this look dressier or less casual than it already is. Express has some very cute and affordable items that I think would go very well together and will create a similar look to the one Melissa is wearing. I found this wonderful wool blend peacoat that matches this sequin embellished peplum top, and some stylish Stella colored jean leggings. A pair of high heel boots, a satchel that maybe contrasts with the colors within the rest of the outfit and some nice jewelry would definitely make for a great similar look!
