Name: Libby Brost
CollegeFashionista: Tell me about your outfit.
Libby Brost: I’m wearing a red pea coat to block the wind since it is starting to get chilly on campus. I am wearing black leggings with my Bandolino riding boots and a floral scarf to dress up the outfit and make it pretty!
CF: What are your favorite stores to shop at?
LB: I like to shop for closet staples at places like the Gap or J. Crew and I like to find random odd things at Target. I also am in love with anything Lilly Pulitzer.
CF: How would you describe your personal style?
LB: I would say my personal style is toned down with more classic pieces in my wardrobe. I would also describe myself as preppy.
CF: What is your favorite thing about fashion?
LB: I love how there are always new trends popping up but you can look at what your mother or grandmother wore and their classic pieces are still in style.
How To: Choose a bold colored jacket that can coordinate with the majority of your wardrobe. In order to make the bold color pop, accessorize with a patterned scarf or leggings. A warm staple jacket for fall is an item in your closet that is worth a splurge. Pull the look together with over-the-knee or knee-high leather boots and chunky socks!
