One word comes to mind when I see a Fashionista walking around campus in a mini during Philly’s frigid fall— classy. This week’s Fashionista takes the word to a whole new level pairing her dark neutrals with a fun and flirty animal print. Not only does she rock a mini skirt in 50 degree weather, but she also brought out a fashion favorite of mine — the vest. This Fashionista doesn’t let weather hold her back from looking classic, confident and put together.

Name: Brooke Beenders

Major: Finance

Year: Junior

CollegeFashionista: Who is your ultimate style icon?

Brooke Beenders: Audrey Hepburn. She is classy and always looks good, yet still conservative which I love about her.

CF: Hard question, but what is one thing in your closet that you can’t live without?

BB: I can’t live without my white pants. I wear them all the time and they go with everything!

CF: Where do you like to shop?

BB: A couple of my favorite stores are J.Crew, Lacoste and Ralph Lauren.

CF: Finally, what are you wearing today?

BB: My skirt is from J.Crew, my long-sleeved shirt is from Lacoste, my scarf is from Green Street Consignment in Manayunk and my vest is Jack Wills.

How To: In order to imitate this classic look for fall, wear a flattering mini like this skirt from LOFT with comfy tights and flats. If you want to spice up your outfit a bit, try wearing textured tights or thigh-high socks with boots. You can even have a combination of both looks with this piece from ModCloth.
