This week's Fashionista turns past inspiration into a contemporary statement by transforming vintage finds into trending treasures. Sophomore Catherine Amato looks to thrift stores and old images to guide her styling imagination. Her one-of-a-kind statement pieces matched with a knack for clean and contemporary appeal, Amato's smorgasbord of style is certainly inimitable.
This week, Amato pairs a whimsical maxi skirt with a feminine cream camisole. Turning attention to her statement of color, her punch of lime green transforms her white-on-white combination into a vivid vision of playful elegance.
