I first heard about CollegeFashionista when I was a freshman in college. I have always been interested in all things fashion and styling, but never really found my calling until I went on a field seminar to New York City where I was exposed to many fashion operations through alums, including CollegeFashionista! Since then, I have been passionate about my major in Apparel Merchandising at Indiana University. I am a junior experiencing my first opportunity with CollegeFashionista, and I could not be more excited! It is an definitely an added bonus that I get to do this while capturing the fashion of the students around me in Europe. After all, all the trends start from abroad.
My passion lies in styling and putting together outfits, which I do in my spare time, so finding this outfit was really fun for me because I tend to do it for my friends and family everyday. I really find a lot of inspiration from menswear, which is why I chose this plaid, oversized flannel as the base for my outfit. Sometimes I even purchase menswear because it is perfect for a loose-fitted look. I paired it with a beanie and knitted cardigan to add layers in this cold weather. Of course I couldn’t forget my favorite pair of skinny jeans and gold-buckled booties. I could pair those two with any winter outfit. This season, I have been obsessed with adding beanies to anything. It’s fun for me to mix dressy and casual to find a new, different look. I love anything comfy. I loved how cute and casual this outfit looked. It’s so easy to throw on. Overall, I am so happy to be starting my new adventure with CollegeFashionista. I love meeting new people and can’t wait to spot out the fantastic outfits abroad!
