While I was out for one of the rare sunny days that we’ve had lately in Bloomington, I decided to pop into my favorite local vintage store and came across this Fashionista. Mariah Srygler, a Poetry and Literature student, caught my eye because of her colorful attire. From her hair to her shoes, it seemed that color was an important aspect of her wardrobe. Naturally I had to know more about her.
Name: Mariah Srygler
College Fashionista: How would you describe your personal style?
Mariah Srygler: Ethnic inspired, funky, and free-spirited.
CF: What do you think others think of your style?
MS: I think some people may find it “weird,” but other probably find it colorful and fun!
CF: Give us a glimpse into your closest. What would we find?
MS: I like Free People and vintage, so you would find a lot of that!
How To: As mentioned above, Mariah’s style consists of a great deal of color. To mimic her look, try this festive and funky jacket from Urban Outfitters. You’ll also need a scarf and a cozy pair of jeans to get the look just right. Complete your outfit with any fun pair of TOMS Shoes (a personal favorite of mine) and a cool pair of earrings. Finally, if you’re not as brave as Mariah when it comes to putting colors in your hair, try this new trend: feather extensions. These crazy little things allow you to the make your hair into a fun accessory, without the permanence of a dye. Just remember to play with colors and textures, and you could be just as stylish as Mariah!
