FASHIONISTA SPOTLIGHT: Alison Corrigan

Everyone always needs that occasional, if not often, shopping day. I spotted this Fashionista on a beautiful summer day, of course, shopping! This Fashionista is wearing a casual chic outfit. When shopping, it’s always important to not only be stylish, but also comfortable. Shopping consists of a lot of trying on new clothes, so you don’t want to wear an intricate outfit that is hard to get out of. This Fashionista played it smart by wearing a maxi skirt with a simple striped tank and then added her statement sunglasses and jewelry.

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?

Alison Corrigan: I would describe my style as comfortably chic. I love pairing a flowy tank or a comfortable sweater with a pair of skinny jeans or high-waisted shorts. I always complete the look by dressing up my outfit with a statement necklace or stacking my favorite Alex and Ani bracelets. 

CF: Where do you usually shop?

AC: I shop for my basic essentials at Brandy Melville. I’m a New Yorker, but I love the carefree California style that Brandy Melville offers. I go for the graphic tees, tanks or sweaters, which are perfect for layering. Urban Outfitters is also a must for everything from skinny jeans to tops or blazers. 

CF: How has your look evolved over the years?

AC: Since going to college, I would say that my style has matured. I seek comfort in my every day wear, but there is no reason to look unkept while doing so. I pull together an outfit with a blazer or a statement accessory for a chic, professional look.

CF: What will you be wearing a lot of this summer?

AC: My favorite summer item would be my high-waisted shorts. I could tuck in a classic blouse for a dressed up look or dress it down with a graphic tee from Brandy Melville; perfect for summer.

CF: Is there a style icon that you look up to for inspiration?

AC: Not only is Emma Roberts one of my favorite actresses, but I also seek inspiration from her style. I’m obsessed with her basic, casual looks all the while looking classic and bold. 

CF: What fashion trend are you looking forward to this summer?

AC: I don’t have many vibrant colors in my wardrobe, so I seek a pop of color from either a nail polish or a statement necklace. The color coral is my current obsession, its fun and appropriate for a summer look.  

How To: Get this classic chic look by wearing a maxi skirt with a simple summer top. Try this striped maxi skirt and this simple black tank from Brandy Melville. If you are going for a more dressed up look and it’s the appropriate weather to wear a lightweight button-down, try this button-down from Brandy Melville. Finish the look by adding your favorite jewelry. For a simple polished look, try a few Alex and Ani bracelets with a Michael Kors watch.
