Upon finishing another infamous fashion design project, I ran across a peer of mine also in the fashion design studio. The first thing that caught my eye about this young designer was her amazing pair of vintage cowboy boots. This Apparel Merchandising student, Rachel Adland, shared a couple of her favorite design secrets with me for this week’s post.

Name: Rachel Adland

Major: Apparel Merchandising

Year: Senior

College Fashionista: What role does your major (Apparel Merchandising) play in your style?

RA: The Apparel Major, and especially the Fashion Design Certificate, both play a large role in my style. Learning about textile construction forces me to take a closer look before purchasing clothing. I also enjoy seeing the styles of my classmates.

CF: What kinds of garments do you like to design?

RA: My favorite thing to design is dresses.

CF: Do you find that your stlye is similar to other students in your classes?

RA: No, we all have very different style.

How To: One thing that I love about Rachel’s look is its simplicity. She does a good job of balancing basics, while also adding flare. To mimic this look, try a basic pair of denim skinny jeans with a chunky sweater. Pair those items with a basic infinity scarf. Finally, find a great pair of boots to make your outfit pop. These Justin boots are amazing and could definitely transform a basic ensemble into a statement outfit. Whatever you do, be sure to let your style show in the boots that you choose!
