Every year the question is raised, when is it acceptable to start wearing white? Whether it's white jeans or shorts, this color is a definite warm weather do! I ran into this cheery Fashionista on her birthday looking cheery in her basic white shorts and vibrant fuschia top. With Atlanta's summer heat in full swing, her outfit is not only cute, but also perfect for a long day of classes during this time of year.
Name: Taylor Kennedy
Major: History & English
CollegeFashionista: What are you most looking forward to wearing this summer?
Taylor Kennedy: Skirts and wedge heels! Any opportunity I have to wear wedges or heels I take advantage of it.
CF: How would you describe your style?
TK: I would describe it as casual but cute. I’m not always the one wearing dresses to classes, but I’m more of a cute tank top, shorts and sandals kind of girl.
CF: Who is your ultimate girl-crush in terms of fashion? What do you like about her style?
TK: I wouldn’t really say I have one specific crush or style I model my own clothes off of, but I do really like the way Emma Stone and Blake Lively dress. I like the cute and sometimes edgy styles of clothing. If only I had the money to build a wardrobe like theirs!
CF: What is your favorite thing to shop for?
TK: I kind of have an obsession with buying going-out dresses and shoes. Online shopping is my biggest temptation! I love having a tight, colorful dress to wear out on the weekends or cute black dresses to wear to more formal events or date parties. And shoes of all kinds are just my weakness.
CF: Has your style changed at all since coming to college?
TK: Since being at college, I think I have come more into my own style and dressing up a little more than I used to when I was in high school with school uniforms.
How To: Once the warm weather kicks in, it is all about wearing white. This color is great because it is so versatile, and bright summery colors all look perfect paired back to a basic white pant or short. Since white is such a basic color, you have room for imagination with the rest of your outfit. For instance, try a flowy patterned top and flat metallic sandals for an easy and laidback summer look. For nighttime, white jeans and a funky wooden wedge or a brightly colored heel is a definite way to make a statement! Overall, white is the perfect clean color for summertime and can be worn during the day like this Fashionista, or choose a cool cover-up for a day at the beach.
