This week's Fashionista has a knack for making a subtle statement by combining simple essentials with intricate detail. Her everyday items may seem standard upon first glance, but sophomore Vivinetto has a keen attention to detail that sets her staples apart from the ordinary go-to ensemble.
This week, Vivinetto wears black skinny pants accented with utility patch stitching and a sleek pair of over-the-knee boots. Paired with an oatmeal colored tie-dye silk square scarf, her muted ensemble allows her statement accessory to pop. She finishes her bronze and black look with a flourescent yellow belt accented with a tortoise buckle, perfect for playing off the coordinating scarf. Vivinetto's look pairs this spring's neon trend with a calm color palette and this winter's edgy, detailed denim.
