FASHIONISTA SPOTLIGHT: Erica Tafuro

It’s the first day back for the spring semester, and an unusually warm day at that. Most students take a while to phase back into school mode and when it comes to their fashion choices that is no exception. However, every true Fashionista knows that every day is a chance to make a statement and truly express herself. Plus, who doesn’t love to show off her new holiday gifts? I saw this Fashionista on the way to pick up some school supplies for the first day of classes. Her balance of comfy and chic was perfection as she paired a loose, graphic tee with edgy leggings with a leather kneecap and leather boots. Her on-point shearling jacket and navy snakeskin bag demonstrated her keen sense of trends.

CollegeFashionista: What’s your favorite thing to wear in the winter?

Erica Tafuro: My favorite thing to wear in the winter is boots! They keep your legs warm and you can always make your outfit trendy.

CF: How would you define your style?

ET: My style is definitely more comfortable, but I like to be stylish at the same time. I’ll pair a baggy t-shirt with nice jeans and a jacket, and always a fun scarf! That’s my favorite accessory for the cold weather. I always love to accessorize too.

CF: Where is your favorite place to shop in D.C.?

ET: I like Urban Outfitters for sweaters and scarves and CUSP for jeans. I also like to go to Wink because they have really cute accessory choices!

How To: To get a look like this Fashionista, find a way to incorporate different trends in a subtle way. Pair a loose t-shirt with leather leggings, which is a great way to incorporate the leather trend in a way other than the traditional jacket (if you’re feeling extra bold, try them in a red!). Top the look off with a cozy jacket and an animal printed bag to hold all your school supplies in a stylish way.
