Today's Fashionista is taking a walk on the jungle side in this vibrant, animal print look. Fashionista Danielle Pierre-Louis was heading off to her advisor when I spotted her unique, eye-catching ensemble. This outfit is filled with many of this season's top trends like vivacious colors and one of our favorite prints that purrs, cheetah.
Fashionista Danielle is donning a cheetah print crop top that makes a ferocious statement. However, her cobalt blue blazer makes this wildly fierce outfit look instantly sophisticated. Harem pants that we hate to love perfectly tone down her bold look and makes the outfit look inviting. To complete her ensemble she wears taupe oxfords that complement the refined elements in this look.
Name: Danielle Pierre-Louis
Major: Music Business
CollegeFashionista: Describe your personal style?
Danielle Pierre-Louis: It’s fun, colorful, I wear a lot of bold colors, hence today. I would also say it’s daring and definitely trendy.
CF: How has Columbia influenced your sense of fashion?
DPL: It encourages me to be more free and not hold back. You will never hear somebody at Columbia say, “what the hell are you wearing?” because we are all artistic. Here there is no right or wrong way to do fashion and that’s really how it should be everywhere.
CF: Who would you say is a style icon?
DPL: Rihanna because she is not afraid to show skin and her clothing complements her personality. When I think of Rihanna she has a very fierce style and it’s really evident in everything she does.
CF: Where do you go to get the best deals?
DPL: Thrift stores are the first stop for me. I also go to the sale rack first whenever I go other stores. I really don’t have a set preference — if it’s cute I’ll wear it.
CF: What is your favorite fall accessory?
DPL: I really love pea coats. Especially with dark fall colors and buttons that make the pea coats pop.
How To: Zebras are just as cool as cheetahs so try this chiffon zebra print tank at Forever 21. Berry colors are a hot commodity this fall and this purple blazer featured on LuLus.com is a great complement for this look. Forever 21 also has a stylish pair of harem pants in a gray color that will make an alluring statement. Jeffrey Campbell Lita boots can polish this look off and here are a great pair at NASTYGAL.
