I spotted this Fashionista on my way home from classes. She was sporting a perfect warm winter outfit for class. Her colorful kicks gave her outfit a pop of color, while her faux-fur vest offered just the right amount of texture to keep her look interesting and fun. It's so trendy and easy to throw on a faux-fur vest on top of anything, wear a splash of color against neutrals and keep in mind that less really is more.
Name: Lindsay Kauchick
Major: Actuarial Science
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing?
Lindsay Kauchick: I’m wearing a Velvet vest, a shirt from Forever 21, skinnies and ankle boots from Target and my necklace was given to me as a gift from my mom.
CF: Where are some of your favorite places to shop?
LK: I like to shop at places that are cute and cheap—I mainly shop at Forever 21, J.Crew, Express and Target.
CF: What’s your go-to outfit for class?
LK: Right now, I always go to a black, knee-length parka with black boots, black tights and a black dress. What can I say—I like black! It’s simple, but it works with everything.
CF: How would you describe your style?
LK: I like to wear simple, laid-back pieces, but I love accessorizing with scarves and other jewelry pieces when going to class.
CF: What fashion advice would you offer to other college students?
LK: We should step out of our comfort zones more often. Who cares what others think about what you’re wearing? Dress for yourself and you’ll never be out of style.
How to: To recreate a look like Lindsay’s try a colored faux-fur under a cozy knit. Think a cream or deep red for some unexpected color. Accessorize your outfit by belting your vest or layering on lots of bangles. Another look to try is pairing your faux-fur with a long sleeve mini dress, which would be a perfect outfit for a night out on the town.
