FASHIONISTA SPOTLIGHT: Samantha Goodnow

This week's Fashionista values clean simplicity. She transforms every day staples with remarkable attention to detail and color. Rising senior Samantha Goodnow says that even the smallest of subtleties, like a great lip color or nail polish, can be the difference between drab and daring. 

This week, Samantha pairs classic denim shorts and gladiator sandals with a not-so-classic combination of cut-out and color. She layers her seafoam sheer blouse over a cream-colored tank with cut-out back detail to create a look that is not only comfortable for summer heat, but tastefully edgy as well. She softens the daring details of her form-fitting tank with a more delicate, oversized tunic. Also a great option for day-to-night occasions, adding Samantha's favorite lip color and subtracting the breezy blouse will create an evening-ready outfit with little effort and a lot of edge.
