Of all the new trends this spring and summer, one of my favorite new pieces gaining popularity is the jumpsuit. Something about the retro shape and feel makes me love nearly every jumpsuit I've seen, and the wild colors and patterns splashed across each piece so uniquely make them even better. This week's Fashionista is sporting a strapless jumpsuit with harem pants and bold stripes. She picks up the colors of the jumpsuit, red, black and pale yellow, with a cute pair of heels that match perfectly. She lets the jumpsuit and heels take center stage, only adding a pair of red tassel earrings to bring out the brightest stripe of the piece and an eye-catching hat to pull you in. In her jumpsuit, this week's Fashionista shows that standing out is this season's hottest trend.

CollegeFashionista: Where did you find the outfit you are wearing today?

Erinn Adams: I actually found the jumpsuit at a discount store, and the shoes are Anne Klein heels that I got on sale. I got the earrings at Target and the hat from a consignment shop, so the outfit was pretty cheap.

CF: Where do you typically go to shop on a budget?

CF: What is the most versatile piece you own?

How To: To get this Fashionista's look, buy a jumpsuit of your own.

Different styles and patterns make them even more unique, and they can be dressy or casual. A cute jumpsuit made for summer and similar to this Fashionista's piece can be found at bebe.
