As Iowa City officially welcomes its first snow fall of the year, the colder weather makes it more difficult for Fashionistas to sport their new mini skirts, favorite dresss or cute tank tops. How to dress chic in winter can be a challenging matter, but not for this Fashionsita! With an adorable faux fur vest and classic black platforms heels, this Fashionista exudes a perfect and trendy style while remaining warm from the harsh December that’s to come.

Name: Alana Kingsley

Major: Social Work

Year: Junior

CollegeFashionista: Tell me about your outfit.

Alana Kingsley: I’m just wearing skinny jeans and a basic black long sleeve shirt. My faux fur vest is from Nordstrom and my shoes are from Akira Chicago.

CF: What is your favorite store to shop at? Why?

AK: My favorite store would have to be Pitaya because they have reasonably priced clothes. They also have really cute and trendy [styles] as well as basics too.

CF: What is your favorite item of clothing?

AK: My favorite item of clothing is my black skirt because it is versatile and I can mix and match so many different tops, jackets and accessories to make different outfits.

How To: Just like an LBD (little black dress), every girl should own a pair of classic black heels. Steve Madden is an obvious go-to for shoes during any season! Go for simple black pumps or try a pair with an ankle strap, which is a different trend that I’ve been seeing a lot for winter. This Fashionista’s camel faux fur vest can be found at Nordstrom at a steal of a price. Pair this with dark skinny jeans and a long sleeve shirt. To tie this ensemble together, an accessory like a long necklace would go just perfectly.
