FASHIONISTA SPOTLIGHT: Raquel Diaz

Looking for a comfortable fit this summer? Try a pair of high-waisted pants on for size. This high-waisted trend dates all the way back to the ’40s and it’s definitely making its way back around. Incorporated in different styles, you can find this trend not only in jeans but also skirts and shorts.

This Fashionista shows you how she loves to style her own pair of high-wasted jeans. This style is worn to outline your silhouette, so don’t try to hide it with an over-sized top. Finding the perfect cropped top or shirt is key to highlighting this look. Remember the point is to show-off your curves, not cover them.

Name: Raquel Diaz

Year: Senior

Major: Psychology

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your sense of style?

Raquel Diaz: My style is a mixture of different trends. I love wearing wild prints and bright colors, but I have my days where I love going for a simple look as well. Most of the time I pay closer attention to my makeup and hair more than anything.

CF: What are your “go-to” styles?

RD: Anytime I’m going somewhere or just hanging out with friends, I don’t think twice about putting on a nice pair of high-waisted pants. I usually pair these with a nice crop top or a regular shirt I could tie-up. This is similar to the outfit I am wearing today. Simple, yet cute. 

CF: If you could switch wardrobes with anyone, who would you choose to switch with?  

RD: Rihanna, of course. There is no question about that one. She always takes risks when she puts her outfits together. She basically sets the trends and standards for most of us. Rihanna knows how to give us sex appeal, while still pulling off a hard-edged punk look.

CF: What trend do you like so far from summer 2013?

RD: So far, I’m loving the bodysuit and cropped top trends. Stores are coming out with more styles and prints.This definitely makes it easier to achieve a Rihanna-inspired look. 

CF: What are your favorite stores?

RD: There are so many stores to choose from. I definitely shop at stores like Forever 21, but I appreciate styles at American Apparel and Urban Outfitters a bit more. 

How To: American Apparel is the place to be, if you want to achieve this look. Most of their selections consist of crop tops, bodysuits and high-waisted jeans or shorts. Spice up this look with a few accessories as well. A bold statement necklace or cute bracelets will do the job of making your outfit stand out.
