CollegeFashionista: Where did you get each piece of your outfit?
Hannah Hunt: I got my coat and bag from Forever 21. My hat is from Urban Attic which is a store located in Louisville. My pants are from H&M.
CF: What was your inspiration for your outfit today?
HH: My inspiration is utility wear, especially since it’s so cold on campus. I have a few things in my closet that I use for a number of outfits. I try to get the most out of my closet. I also like looking on Etsy to find cool products to include in my outfits.
CF: Who do you look to for style inspiration?
HH: My sister, she always has a unique style and doesn’t follow the trends. She does it in a way that looks amazing and expresses her own individualism. I also look to the Sartorialist which is a website with a ton of street fashion. I like to see how people put their own creativity in their outfits.
CF: What are some of your favorite trends on campus?
HH: I like all the hats. I also like boots that lace up.
CF: What stores do you shop at?
HH: I love shopping at Forever 21 and H&M.
CF: What advice do you have for the readers?
HH: Look for your own personal inspiration and don’t try to follow all the trends.
How To: To pull off this perfect look for those cold winter days, start off with a knitted hat, a fashionable coat and a pair of pants. Pair this outfit with some boots and a shoulder bag. If you want to add some more flair to your outfit try going with a coat with some fur lining to keep warm and fashionable!
