Have you ever stopped to consider whether or not your style is a reflection of your background? Well, this Fashionista has! Growing up in the desert has influenced her interest in Aztec prints, Indian jewelry and of course, anything with a general Southwestern flair.

Name: Emily Williams

Year: Senior

Major: English

CollegeFashionista: Tell me about a recent trend that you love or hate:

Emily Williams: Okay, I have a love/hate relationship with crop tops. In theory, I really love them, but it’s so difficult to find the right one to work with your personal style and your body type. 

CF: Heels or flats?

EW: In theory, I am always about heels! I love a good four-inch heel. However in my day-to-day life, I end up wearing flats for convenience. 

CF: Where do you seek inspiration for dressing? I.e., magazines, friends, the internet etc.

EW: I get a lot of my inspiration from my friends! They all are so cool and have their own style, and that gives me the confidence to make my own look.

CF: Do you have a signature piece of clothing or jewelry?

EW: I always wear my turquoise ring and my copper ring because they are both really Southwestern and I’m proud of my roots.

How to: Luckily for you, there was a recent uproar in Aztec and Southwestern-themed prints, so the style is readily available online and in stores. You can find the prints in loud styles like in this romper, or in a more authentic selection like this cardigan. Either way that you choose to style it, don’t forget the turquoise!
