Fashionista Spotlight

Once again, Philadelphia has blessed us with a hazy sky and raindrops. However, that does not stop all the Fashionistas from breaking out their comfortable best. My go-to is always an oversized flannel with either a cool pair of liquid leather leggings or just the traditional pair of Lululemon yoga pants. So when I saw this Fashionista sporting a version of one of my favorite hazy day outfits, I knew I had to stop her. It resembles a very casual look while still having a classic American feel.

Name: Sarah Patterson

Major: Political Science and English

Year: Senior

CollegeFashionista: I love your rustic look.  It's the perfect fall outfit.  Where did you get all your pieces?

Sarah Patterson: The vest is a J.Crew vest as well as my shirt, my vest is Patagonia and Steve Madden combat boots.

CF: As we move into fall, is there anyone whose style you are admiring?

SP: I love Kate and Pippa Middleton's effortlessly chic and preppy everyday looks.

CF: What is your favorite fall trend?

SP: I'm really liking the sock bun for an easy and classic hairstyle.

How To: Hazy days are hard to plan for, but layering a classic button up with a vest is an easy way to add warmth, protection from the rain and a little flare to the outfit. This Fashionista opts to add combat boots, which could be substituted for a fall flat. Try a leopard flat to work in a mixed pattern trend or a rain boot if necessary. No matter which way you slice it, you can’t go wrong with layering.
