FASHIONISTA SPOTLIGHT: Kelly McKay

Summer lovin' may have been fleeting for Danny and Sandy, but that doesn't mean that we have to let go of summer. It seems as if the instant an auburn leaf floats to the ground, another girl defaults a picture of the her beach captioned, “I miss summer <3.”

Unless you want to contract pneumonia for some strange reason, chances are that you won't wear your cropped tops and cut-offs in 45-degree weather. But that doesn't mean you need to exile your summer wardrobe to plastic under-the-bed storage bins. By layering summer garments with pants or tights and a heavy jacket, you can make light fabrics work in fall and winter.

So please, don't post how much you miss summer on every social media platform imaginable — show it! After all, they say fashion is the best way to express yourself…

Name: Kelly McKay

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your personal style?

Kelly McKay: I just buy clothes that look sort of unique and that I like and then pair them all together. There's always some sort of sporty element incorporated into the outfit though, whether I consciously include it or not. It kind of just pops up.

CF: What are your go-to stores?

KM: LF, which is where I got this dress, lululemon, UNIQLO and NASTY GAL.

CF: Favorite trends of the moment?

KM: I don't know if it's necessarily trends that I like, but almost all the new clothing I have bought in the past few months is either hi-low or neon, or both.

CF: Where do you get your style inspiration?

KM: Different style blogs and my friends. If I see something I like on someone in the streets, I'll usually stop them and ask them where they got it or try to find something like it online.

How To: To get this summer-inspired look, pair a light colored hi-low dress with leggings, combat boots and a leather jacket. Layer, layer, layer!
