Fashionista Spotlight

Jay Z’s song lyric “all black everything” is no longer just a lyric, but a way of life. Wearing an all black outfit is effortless yet always fashionable. You can’t go wrong with black whether you’re going to a casual or formal event or just looking for the perfect everyday outfit. This Fashionista was spotted coming from a student organized fashion show which she helped organize for the Fashion Industry Association. She wears simple black jeans with a faux fur sweater. Her gold trimmed and studded shoes are the perfect addition to her outfit. This “all black everything” outfit was perfect for the event and casual enough to wear for the rest of the day.

Name: Kelly Cahill

Year: Junior

Major: Fashion Merchandising and Management

CollegeFashionista: What are some of your favorite places to shop?

Kelly Cahill: I love Urban Outfitters, it is definitely my favorite store. I also like to look in boutiques and find items that would be hard to find in most stores. I think that adds a personal touch to my style.

CF: The weather has been so bipolar recently. How do you keep up with the weather without dressing for the spring too early?

KC: I try not to bring out my spring clothes just yet. It’s hard because I’m really excited for the warm weather especially after this awful winter. I like to wear neutral colors that can be worn in any season that way I don’t look tacky or ridiculous.

CF: What will be your first purchase for the spring?

KC: I love bathing suits! Not really for the spring but as soon as I start seeming them I have to buy a new one. They are my favorite thing to buy, I have so many.

How To: Achieving an all black look is easy. Because the outfit consists of only black, I like to add bold accessories such as jewelry, shoes or even a hair piece. Similar to this Fashionista’s shoes, these black leather cutout booties are very in style right now and will add the perfect finish to an all black outfit. Another great way to create an all black look is by wearing black jeans that have something extra. These jean vegan leather pants are fashionable and will work perfect in achieving that all black outfit.
