I was thrilled to find this NYU student for my last Fashionista Spotlight post, ever. From her animal print laptop case to her sheer knee-high socks, this Fashionista’s look encompasses everything: comfort (the sweater dress), individuality (her statement necklace), a little sexiness and even a fun tech accessory. She pulls off the layered socks and boots because her sweater dress is so simple and sleek that it allows for more details and a chunkier shoe. I love the dress’s relaxed fit and short length, and the navy really sets off her bright gold necklace. Altogether her look is downtown chic and a little flirty. And props to her for rocking the animal print in a very functional way. Read more about this Fashionista below!

How To: This Fashionista demonstrates how to rock a sweater dress in the spring. Instead of wearing it with tights like you would in the winter, opt for a pair of sheer knee-high socks to keep things light and breezy while showing off a little leg. Another key element to this Fashionista’s look is her statement necklace. Find one with a longer chain to complement your dress. Last but not least, dress up your laptop in a fun case like this heart printed one from ASOS or, if you can splurge, this jaguar printed one by Marc by Marc Jacobs. An eye-catching case makes for the perfect accessory especially when you’re toting it around on campus.
