My name is Diana Aguirre and I’m a senior at The University of Texas at Austin. This spring I will be documenting the latest accessory trends happening around campus. I am beyond excited and honored to be a part of the CollegeFashionista team this semester!
Fashion has always been something that has captured my attention for as long as I can remember. In middle school, I would spend lunch breaks at a teacher’s classroom reading the latest issues of Vogue and W Magazine. However, my interest in fashion really awakened in college after working backstage at New York Fashion Week in September 2012 with fellow Fashionistas from campus. Since then, I have been involved with the fashion community in Austin working local events and runway shows.
When describing my personal style, the quote, “Fashion fades, style is eternal” really sets in. My style is in constant change and although I incorporate trendy pieces into my wardrobe, I find myself sticking to those I have worn and loved over the years. I rely on the basics like my black structured blazer to down play a jeweled-toned dress, for example, or a pair of printed pants. Lately, I’ve been a huge fan of the moto trend especially in pants and leggings with leather details. In my outfit I paired these leather paneled leggings with a white chiffon top in a feminine silhouette to keep the look classic and chic.
To me, accessories are very important when putting an outfit together. They help update any wardrobe without spending a lot of money. By adding a statement necklace, a pair of rings or a hat you can create a whole new vibe to a simple ensemble creating a style of your own. Here I added a bag in oxblood with gold details to add a focus point and accent the neutrals from the look. I also wore my menswear inspired gold watch and a statement ring.
As a first time Style Guru intern for CollegeFashionista, it is my pleasure to bring you an ACCESSORIES REPORT every Friday. I can’t wait to share with you all my fashion insight and findings this spring season. Hope you enjoy reading!
