Fashionista Spotlight

The weather in the Northeast never fails to surprise us. Temperatures have been fluctuating recently, as I am anxiously awaiting a fresh snowfall to cover the grass for a white Christmas. The unusually mild weather recently has kept us on our toes and forces Fashionistas to be flexible with their wardrobe. It’s easy to say fashionable though, whether dressing for a temperate December day, or the bitter winter chill. This Fashionista was able to stay looking chic by throwing on a fur vest. It serves as a versatile piece and really makes a statement.

CollegeFashionsta: What are your top three wardrobe staples?

Taylor Berger: I love my 7 For All Mankind Jeans, a BCBG sweater and my Michael Kors sunglasses.

CF: What is your favorite designer/brand?

TB: I love to shop at Free People. Their bodycon dresses are my favorite!

CF: Who are your celebrity style icons?

TB: I love the way that Lauren Conrad puts together her outfits. She wears very laidback, simple pieces but puts them together in a way that is really unique.

How To: It’s easy to incorporate fur into your wardrobe, even if you’re a little intimated of wearing a huge statement piece. If you are ready to embrace the faux fur trend, a vest like this Fashionista’s is the perfect piece and a neutral color can be worn in so many different ways. If you are more timid in your fashion choices, try a winter coat with a faux fur trim. Faux fur has come a long way and is now and is a great way to add a little oomph to an outfit!
