I have never been interested in or inspired by the style of Fashionista/os who blindly follow trends. I believe that genuine Fashionista/os incorporate current trends into their own style while still remaining true to the quirky pieces in their wardrobe. This week's Fashionista has the same philosophy as I do. She is an eclectic Fashionista whose ensembles display numerous diverse trends. While her style has been described as “wacky,” she is confident in herself and wears whatever she wants, paying no attention to what is conventional. What stands out the most about this Fashionista is that no matter what she is wearing, her look is always 100% reflective of her personality. She dresses to impress only herself, making her an icon to the Fashionistas around her.
Name: Taylor Eacuello
CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your personal style?
Taylor Eacuello: My style is very all over the place. I can never stick to one specific label for my style. I'm the kind of girl who wears Doc Martens as well as Sperry Top-Siders.
CF: What is your style inspired by?
TE: My style is inspired by my life. It's kind of hectic but put together.
CF: What is your definition of a Fashionista/o?
TE: Someone who has awesome style without consciously making decisions. A true Fashionista/o doesn't care what is cool and what is not, she or he will just know what is cool effortlessly.
CF: If you could have any celebrity's wardrobe whose would you choose and why?
TE: Zooey Deschanel because she's so adorable and girly. I wish I could pull off her look.
CF: What is your go-to outfit for a day at the beach?
TE: A pair of high-waist denim shorts with a cropped tank top and of course a bandeau bikini to have minimal tan lines.
CF: What is one trend you would like to see become popular this summer?
TE: Wooden jewelry. I'm starting to get a little sick of seeing feathered jewelry.
CF: Do you have any advice for the aspiring Fashionista/os out there?
TE: Never limit creativity or boldness. That is what makes a true Fashionista/o.
How To: To recreate this Fashionista's simple, chic look, check out one of this season's hottest trends; sheer blouses. While this Fashionista opts for a neutral cream blouse, adding a subtle pop of color is just as trendy. If neutral colors aren't really you thing, another great option is this unique chiffon blouse available at Topshop. I love how the gold buttons stand out of the delicate black fabric. Accessorize with a light infinity scarf. The newest item on my wish list is this Kimchi Blue eternity scarf available at Urban Outfitters. I am obsessed with the pretty print and bold colors.
