FASHIONISTA SPOTLIGHT: Sabina Armstrong

As temperatures get higher, it seems that hemlines seem to follow the same trend. Short skirts and short shorts are often a go-to choice, and skimpy clothes are not an uncommon sight. But, dressing like a true lady? That is. I saw this Fashionista on her way to a meeting. Her basic color choices kept the outfit simple and cohesive. Touches of shimmer, woven into her skirt (reminiscent of timeless Chanel), and classic ballet flats kept the outfit looking feminine and chic, while the pops of color in her Hermès scarf broke up the monochromatic color scheme.

CollegeFashionista: What is your favorite spring trend and favorite item to wear in the spring?

Sabina Armstrong: I think one of my favorite trends is neutrals I think that they are so easy to wear and you always look classic. My favorite thing to wear right now is the hand knitted sweater that I am wearing, it is the perfect add on piece, and it looks good with every spring and summer outfit!

CF: How would you describe your style in 3 words?

SA: My style is relaxed, girly and diverse.

CF: If you could raid one person's closet, who would it be and why?

SA: I would raid Sienna Miller's closet! She has always been a style icon of mine. She is someone who is able to make a grungy outfit look classic or a classic outfit look hipster. There are no limits with her style and that’s what I love the most about her!

How To: To get a look like this Fashionista’s, opt for a fuller skirt as opposed to a bandage one. A partially tucked-in, chunky sweater gives the look a more trendy and modern vibe. Try choosing pieces that are all within the same color scheme and let your accessories add some pops of color. Adding on a silk scarf, but leaving it open, like this Fashoinsta did, is the perfect way to wear this accessory in the warmer, spring weather. Finish the look off with some lady-like ballet flats and a simple clutch.
