This Fashionista exhibits the right way to layer from head to toe. She proved that gray and black are complementary colors for any season and a great go-to combination for any style. She took this look from cozy to chic by sporting a gray mini skirt, black sheer tights and black leather boots. Her lavender scarf pops against her black blouse and provides a splash of spring color.

CollegeFashionista: Who are your fashion icons and why?

Amanda Adams: I recently got back from studying abroad in Spain and the European women are gorgeous! I love the way that Spanish girls can layer their clothing without looking frumpy. They are so chic, confident and fearless and I think that’s what really completes a look.

CF: What is your favorite aspect of fashion?

AA: I love the ever-changing dynamic of it. There are always fun new trends to try out, the classics and old trends that come back in a new way.

CF: What is one wardrobe piece you recommend for every closet?

AA: A dark pair of skinny jeans are great because you can wear them during the day with a more casual top and then dress them up at night with the right accessories and a cute pair of flats. But right now I love patterned tights! I feel like you can pair different patterns with skirts and dresses and give it a whole new look!

CF: How would you describe your personal style?

AA: I would describe my personal style as simple chic. I try to look put together while remaining comfortable. My wardrobe consists of a lot of neutral and basic colors but then I love adding scarves, shoes or other accessories to add personality and pops of color.

How-To: Achieve Amanda’s effortless look by pairing two neutral colors such as black, white, gray or beige. Wear a form-fitting skirt, loose top and leather boots. Connect your shoes to the rest of your outfit and give your look an edge by wearing thick wool socks visible over your boots. The neutral color-scheme allows you to choose accessories, such as a scarf, with a bright color.
