My name is Carly Ciccotti and I will be a sophomore at The George Washington University come fall. This summer will be my second time writing for CollegeFashionista and I’m so excited to be a part of the team again! Last semester I wrote for the LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS section and this summer I will be covering both FASHION FROM ABROAD as well as the ACCESSORIES REPORT. As someone who is both interested in fashion and loves to travel, I am excited to investigate the trends both home and abroad.
My personal style is an amalgamation of an edgy push on classic. I firmly believe that simplicity is elegance. For summer, one of my favorite timeless pieces are jean shorts. You can pair them with a military vest and wedges, as I did, or you can throw on gladiator sandals and a tank for a more casual look. J Brand has every style and color fathomable; this pair would be a perfect addition to any closet. The dark color is extremely versatile and is a fun twist on the classic denim short.
When incorporating accessories into this look, I tried to balance color and size. I love to mix vibrant tones with more tamed colors, such as the pink zippered military vest with the gold boyfriend watch and a pair of classic Ray-Bans. The juxtaposition of large, small, bright and neutral add another layer to the look. I firmly believe that less is more when it comes to adding accessories.The combination of bold and basic ensures that my look isn’t overwhelming.
