This Fashionista’s style is always on my radar, with her being a classmate in more than one of my courses. Always managing to look classic, girly and put-together, this Fashionista shows that personal style doesn’t have to be outrageous to be fashionable. I believe that often those who put off-the-wall ensembles together get more credit in terms of creative fashion, but often those who put together classically stylish outfits get overlooked. This should never be the case! Classic personal style is something that should be admired. This Fashionista proves this idea.
Name: Sarah Floren
CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?
Sarah Floren: I would say my style can usually be described as combination between the preppy school girl look and a simple, classic look since I wear a lot of skirts and dresses combined with sweaters, blouses or a blazer.
CF: What's your favorite item of clothing?
SF: A legging. It’s such an easy item to put on and it’s very comfortable. Also, you can wear it with shorts, dresses and skirts which makes it an essential item in my closet.
CF: What do you think is the best way to dress fashionably in cold weather?
SF: Layers: the more layers, the warmer you will be, which is quite essential in the winter. I especially like wearing a warm sweater over a blouse. And also, a nice scarf is always nice to accessorize a winter coat.
CF: What are your favorite places to shop?
SF: H&M, Target and Bershka because they are not very expensive, which fits my student budget and they have all the clothes you need to be able to make nice outfit combinations.
