When you look down Comm Ave, you see a sea of girls dressed in head to toe prep, tribal or grunge. But rarely do you see a girl daring enough or stylish enough to combine all three looks. So when I saw freshman Rebecca Fox walking down the street, only one word came to mind: Fashionista. I loved how she meticulously paired basic items that every Fashionista has buried in her closet to create a unique, attention-grabbing look; I would be lying if I said I didn't wear my denim jacket the next day.
So to all of you wannabe Fashionistas, take a cue from Rebecca and mix it up! College is the time to find yourself and your personal style, so do the college thing and experiment (strictly in a fashion sense, or maybe not, it’s your prerogative).
Name: Rebecca Fox
CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your personal style?
Rebecca Fox: I’m not exactly sure how I would describe my personal style. It depends on the weather and my mood, but it usually ranges from a neat vintage or urban look to more of a boho one. I also really like to wear things that define the waist.
CF: Where do you draw your style influences from?
RF: I usually try to create my own style, but some of my biggest influences come from my peers walking down Commonwealth Avenue.
CF: What are your go-to stores?
RF: My favorite stores to shop at are Urban Outfitters, J Crew and Bloomingdales.
How To: This week’s Fashionista wore a grungy Lucky Brand denim jacket and rolled up the sleeves for a more polished look. For a similar jacket, check out this Levi's Trucker Jacket. She also paired a classic plain white T-shirt with a fall-like mustard yellow high-waisted skirt, both from American Apparel. Rebecca stayed warm with black Berkshire tights and wore super cute white and cream heeled loafers. Check out these platform heeled loafers for a similar look. She finished off the look with a studious tribal print backpack. For a tribal-inspired backpack like Rebecca’s, try this tapestry backpack from Urban Outfitters.
