Name: Stephanie Patiño
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing and where is it from?
Stephanie Patiño: I’m wearing combat boots from JCPenny and my striped shorts are from Charlotte Russe. My gray tank top is from Hollister Co. and my leggings are from T.J. Maxx. My red cardigan is from Abercrombie & Fitch and I received my ring on my Quinceañera.
CF: What was your inspiration for your outfit today?
SP: When it gets chilly I love wearing leggings and I love neutrals. But I like to add a little bit of color to make my outfit cute!
CF: What is your token fashion statement?
SP: I need to have some type of pattern in my outfit, it can’t just be plain. Like today, I’m wearing stripes. I love stripes!
CF: What are your favorite fall trends?
SP: I love boots, loose baggy sweaters and crew necks with leggings.
CF: Who is your fashion icon?
SP: I don’t look at celebrities or television stars for fashion tips. I honestly look towards my roommate for fashion inspiration.
CF: I love your high bun, how did you learn how to style it?
SP: I look at a lot of different YouTube style guru videos. I guess I’m the type of person who likes to take advice from every day people. You can really relate to them more than some star you see in a magazine.
Hint: When the weather is still in between the fall and winter stages, it’s hard to find a suitable outfit. But this outfit is perfect for those days: super comfy and very cute! Just grab your favorite pair of leggings and a gray tank. Pair these with a pair of combat boots, a cute oversized cardigan knit and a pair of high-waisted striped shorts to complete your outfit. To complete your look with a sleek top-bun like this Fashionista’s, don’t worry, because you too can style it in just under three minutes!
