I can’t ever seem to have enough dresses. Every time I go shopping, I always seem to add another frock to my wish list. That is why I loved spotting this Fashionista in this patterned mini dress. Her look is incredibly versatile because it is perfect for a day of classes or even a nice dinner out. She could easily swap her simple ballet flats for boots or heels and dress this look up even more.
Name: Sarah Stuckey
CollegeFashionista: Do you have a favorite brand, clothing store, or designer?
Sarah Stuckey: I really like the designer Max Azria because of his French influence and contemporary style. His brand, BCBGMAXAZRIA, offers affordable designer clothes. I especially love the dresses for their fun colors and classy styles.
CF: How would you describe your style?
SS: My style is pretty preppy. I like wearing simple pieces and accessorizing with jewelry. I also love flowy tops, blazers and colorful dresses.
CF: Has your style changed since coming to college?
SS: Definitely! In high school I had to wear a uniform, so now I have more opportunities to show my style. I started layering more with sweaters, wearing more bold jewelry and investing in new shoes.
CF: Who do you draw your fashion inspiration from? What do you like most about her style?
SS: I really admire Rachel Bilson's style; she always looks super cute and put together. I love that her looks always seem effortless and she is very smart with her accessories.
How To: Sarah’s outfit is great because she looks extremely polished and put together, but by wearing a dress eliminated the stress of picking an outfit. The dress itself makes a statement with its pattern and style, but when paired with a multi-strand gold necklace, her personal style really shines through. This look is perfect for a college student because the long sleeves and flouncy skirt make it appropriate for daytime, regardless of its short hemline. Also, this dress can go from day to night by simply adding a pair of heels and bold accessories. When in doubt, start with a dress and accessorize to your liking!
