With Hurricane Sandy hitting the Northeast and chilly weather hitting Miami, everything seems a little backwards lately. If the rest of you are anything like me, you usually wait until Thanksgiving break to grab a few sweaters and scarves from home. Mother Nature doesn't wait for us to fly home for our annual wardrobe swap, though. So how do we handle these unexpected cold spells?
Senior Maddie Nieman kept warm with a cozy, slightly cropped top. Somewhat of a cross between a sweatshirt and a sweater, the purple cotton top has a slightly worn, vintage feel. Studded shoulder detailing adds spice and edge to the understated coloring and otherwise simple style. Three-quarter length sleeves ensure that this Fashionista's look isn't too warm—after all, I guess 66 degrees isn't that cold. She pairs her top with light wash stretch jeans for a daytime look more polished than leggings, but still comfy enough for a long day of classes. Finally, her black leather combat boots tie together the casually cool outfit.

CollegeFashionista: If cost wasn't an issue, what is the one item you would buy for your closet?
Maddie Nieman: Custom made studded Nike dunks!
CF: Where are your favorite places to shop?

MN: Pinterest! But I like to add my own flair to it. I like seeing the way people put things together because it gives me ideas for my own closet. I like using the same clothes but wearing them in a new way. I iave a lot of pieces of my mom's from the eighties, and I have a large collection of Nike dunks that I like to incorporate.
