I ran into to today’s Fashionista after her sorority’s weekly chapter meeting. While most girls choose to wear sundresses, Meredith stands out in a simple gray maxi dress. Paired with a lightweight white jacket that is perfect for the warm weather, she looks effortlessly cool and also put together.

CollegeFashionista: Where do you look for style advice?
Meredith Brockman: I get a lot of outfit ideas off of Pinterest — there are always a lot of great put-together outfits.
CF: With Spring and summer right around the corner, what is your go-to warm weather outfit?
MB: Colorful shorts and a tucked-in collared shirt. Or something with lace!
CF: When you're running low on time are you more likely to throw on gym shorts and run to class or do you risk being a few minutes late in order to make yourself look presentable?
MB: I try to think of outfits before I go to sleep so that I don't have to try on 100 different tops before I leave. I wouldn't wear athletic clothes to class, but I'd throw on a go-to outfit like leggings and a long top.
CF: Were you able to watch the Oscars last weekend? If so, who did you think was the “best dressed” and why?
MB: Yes, I thought that Cameron Diaz looked amazing. I think her hair and make-up complimented her classic dress really well.
How To: Many girls shy away from floor length dresses because they don’t think they can “pull it off.” With the right style and color, a maxi dress is a must for every girl! If you are skeptical about this trend, try a neutral colored dress with a flowy fit. If you are feeling bold, go for a bright color or a vibrant pattern. Maxi dresses are perfect for vacation to throw on after a long day at the beach or the pool. So pick one up before spring break, particularly a jersey version that is easy to pack and also looks great.
