Last Wednesday, while on my way to my first class of the semester, I glimpsed a bit of drama. A big bushel of black curls enticed me to take a closer look, and attached, I found Chaquita Thompson happily chatting away on her cell phone. From her gorgeous earrings, I instantly knew that she was a woman of style, and immediately approached her for this feature.
Name: Chaquita Thompson
College Fashionista: What drew you to this pair of earrings?
Chaquita Thompson: I really like pieces that look exotic, so these earrings were a perfect fit for me.
CF: Is it hard for you to put together fashionable outfits to wear to class?
CT: I actually spend a lot of free time putting outfits together, so when it comes to dressing in the morning, it's almost second nature. I didn't wear this purse on purpose though, it was last minute!
CF: What colors do you tend to gravitate towards?
CT: I tend to like earth tones more, hence the pants today.
CF: Where do you like to shop?
CT: I would say I shop the most at American Apparel and Urban Outfitters.
How To: To get Chaquita's look, follow her lead and try to incorporate earth tones into your look. You can easily polish off a humdrum outfit with the right color scarf or an accessory that draws attention to where you want it.
