With the music festival Coachella over those that could not attend, like myself look jealously at the pictures. Not for exactly the music but definitely for the fashion.  Coachella is a great hunting ground to look up incredible street fashion. Super chic and easygoing styles are popular at the event while being fashion forward. Us Midwesteners can only dream of pulling off the styles of those from the Coast. Lucky for me I saw a girl that reminded me of those that attended that concert. It was effortless but at the same time polished enough to wear for a day out.

Name: Marne Wiklanski

Major: Human Physiology

Class: Sophomore

CollegeFashionista: What inspired you to wear your outfit today?

Marne Wiklanski: It got really nice out, which we can never count on anymore, so I decided to take the opportunity to dress up and wear my new belt.

CF: How would you describe your style?

MW: Random. I love being comfortable and going with an indie type look but also love to dress up. I always find myself picking different patterns or something off the wall and don’t really pin myself to one style.

CF:Who do you look at for fashion inspiration?

MW: I love Hilarie Burton’s style because she is edgy but usually rocks it. She looks great fancy or completely dressed down because she adds small touches that set her apart.

CF: Who's closet would you love to raid?

MW: Zooey Deschanel’s. She’s quirky and her personality definitely shows through her fashion. She’s versatile and does her own thing.

CF: What are you most excited to wear for this upcoming summer?

MW: Neon and bold colors, some hats, along with anything indie to go with my keds.

CF: What should every girl have in her closet?

MW: A little black dress and a great pair of heels.

CF: What items can you not live without in your closet?

MW: Skinny jeans and my leather jacket. I’m simple!

CF: Where do you like to shop?

MW: I usually find Lord and Taylor to be my one-stop shop. I could, and usually do, spend hours there, and contrary to popular belief, always find great deals.

How To: To accomplish this look feel free to mix and match your favorite dress with great accessories. Find a great neon colored dress from Forever 21, a tie-dye one from Urban Outfitters and great printed maxi type dress from Anthropologie. Great belts can be found from Lord and Taylor and can be paired with anything. The final touch to this outfit would be a great pair of wedges. Wedges are so versatile and should be a staple in every girls summer wardrobe. Toms has come out with a whole line of wedges with great prints and if you want a strappier pair of wedges Kate Spade has amazing options. Feel free to have fun mixing and matching to create a easy going outfit that fun and super chic!
