On the laziest of school days, when a T-shirt and sweatpants are calling my name, I retaliate by putting on a dress and most comfortable pair of high-heels. From one outfit to the next, I’m feeling energized and ready to conquer the day. Although I can’t fully give credit to my clothes for getting me through the toughest days, I can preach their ability to boost my confidence.

When I interviewed Fashionista Louanna Faine her confidence and unique personality flowed from the minute I approached her to her final words of advice. Her chic outfit spoke volumes but Faine stressed the importance of standing out and being an individual in your attire.

Name: Louanna Faine

Year: Senior

Major: Journalism

College Fashionista: How would you describe your style?

Louanna Faine: Outspoken and different. I make my clothes personal- I can find something at Ross or wherever and make it my own by the way I put it together.

CF: Who or what inspires your sense of style?

LF: I’m from New York and walking down the streets you see so much individuality that inspires you. But no one is trying to look like anyone- we’re all individuals with our own sense of style, that separates us.

CF: What’s your fashion advice for fellow ASU Fashionista/os?

LF: You have to feel comfortable and you have to be confident. You never know who you’re going to meet so you have to be dressed confidently all the time. Be original and step out of the box.

How To: There’s no doubt that a few rompers need to be added to your spring and summer wardrobe. Whether it’s an animal print such as Fashionista Faine’s or a solid color design like the one in Style Guru Jacqueline Valle’s TREND post: Welcome to Romper World! I suggest this Lazerade by Veda Perry romper in black and white sold at Urban Outfitters. If you're preparing for a day in the sun, you'll want to accessorize with a large hat such as this crochet floppy straw hat in bali blue sold at Nordstrom.
