Although it's not quite the 4th of July yet, I have always loved the patriotic shades of red, white and blue together all year round. This week, this Fashionista shows us how to rock the feminine look while keeping it oh so American. Never think you can pull off the maxi look just right? Nonsense! She'll show you just what to do.
Name: Jessica Boyle
Major: Public Relations
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing?
Jessica Boyle: The skirt is from Urban Outfitters, my necklace is from Forever 21, my bracelet is Stella and Dot, my watch is Marc Jacobs, my tank is from Forever 21 as well and my shoes are from Target!
CF: How would you describe your style?
JB: I like bright colors and comfortable loose-fitted items. My friends make fun of me because I wear floral a lot, but I would describe my style as very feminine.
CF: What does style mean to you?
JB: I look like a bum going to class, but on weekends I love exploring my style and playing around with new flirty looks. I think style is something that people should always explore and have fun with when they can. You should never be afraid to try new things!
CF: Where do you get most of your inspiration from?
JB: I love seeing what other people around school are wearing, and getting ideas from them! It's fun to play off of that. I also love Miley Cyrus… she dresses grungy but is always so pretty about it. I also think Blake Lively is always so put together and girlie.
How To: To get this summery yet sophisticated look, a long maxi skirt is the key item. A bright color like Jessica's is always a good start. If you decide on a more neutral color, you can then play up the colors elsewhere. A simple tank or tube top should complement the skirt along with some simple jewelry. A small necklace or some wrist candy may be the key! And to finish the look off, a minimal strap sandal or wedge will bring this feminine appeal to perfection!
