Grunge chic is the perfect trend to end our summer styling tips. Oversized sweaters and leather pieces prepare us for the fall semester. These trends are highlighted by dark colors such as olive green, burgundy, black and gray.
This Fashionista is modeling a quick preview of what the grunge trend has to offer. Her leather leggings are layered under a cute olive green sweater. She also laced up her All-Star Converse to complete her look.

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?
Shakurah Brack: I would describe my style as unique and versatile. I can definitely rock a girly look, as well as a tom-boy ensemble. I also like to mix and match prints.
CF: What are your “go-to” styles?
SB: On a regular day, I love picking out oversized graphic tees or sweaters. Printed or thrifted button-ups are also on my go-to styles.
CF: What is your favorite season to dress for and why?
SB: Fall. There is no question about that one. Nothing beats wearing big comfy sweaters. I love layering my clothing. So, I think fall gives everyone a better chance to be creative and chic with their outfits.
CF: What is your style influenced by?
SB: The media and music has a lot of effect on the fashion industry in general. However, most of the outfits I wear aren’t common for most people to wear on a daily basis. I like taking risks.
CF: What would you never be caught wearing?
SB: Plaid. I’m not very fond of of it. I think the style is too common.
