This Fashionista is from a small town, but has big dreams. From the northern suburbs of Chicago, this fashion major is studying to become a buyer for a large apparel company or to work at a major fashion magazine and style models for photo-shoots. Her outfit shows she certainly has an eye for color, playing with patterns and style.

CF: What trends are you most excited to wear this spring?
GB: The trends I can’t wait to wear are high-waisted shorts and skirts, neon colors and busy patterns.
CF: Who are your style icons?
GB: I love the way Lauren Conrad, Rachel Bilson, Blake Lively and Vanessa Hudgens dress. I get a lot of my fashion inspiration from them.
CF: How would you describe your personal style?
GB: I would describe my personal style as boho with some edgy and preppy pieces mixed in.
How To: A great pair of black jeans should be a staple for any Fashionista’s wardrobe. Like this Fashionista did, pairing dark denim with a bright, colorful top doesn’t take attention away from the loud shirt. Black denim is different than blue jeans because it compliments the outfit with a neutral color, rather than adding a splash of blue to an already technicolor ensemble.
