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.
Name: Alison Corrigan
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.
