It’s really no wonder that Warner dumped Elle Woods. Let’s be real. Who could ever forget that hot pink leather skirt and matching jacket that she wore?! However successful Elle turned out to be, she gave pink a bad rap. Until now. In my post-cherry blossom season depression, I have been piecing together outfits based solely around Elle Woods’ favorite color. From my blush-colored chinos to a vintage salmon sweater, pink has made a strong resurgence in my wardrobe.

It was hard to miss this Fashionista’s punchy pink frock on a recent gloomy spring day. The flared skirt, three quarter length sleeves, cinched waist and exposed zipper make it perfect for day or night.

Name: Shamier Settle

Major: International Affairs

Year: Freshman

CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?

Shamier Settle: I would describe my style as preppy and relaxed. I went to a boarding school where there was a strict dress code, with little leeway for fashion. Consequently, I adopted a more preppy style. Since I am now free of that dress code, I have started to pair preppier things with more relaxed items, like jeans and oversized sweaters.

CF: How are you transitioning your closet from cooler weather to warmer weather?

SS: Less pants…more skirts!

CF: If you could only keep one piece of clothing for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

SS: I would keep my boyfriend's sweatshirt from the school we both went to. I sleep in it all the time and it has so much sentimental meaning to me.

How To: Whether it’s pink or blue, think bright, think bold. Try a simple sheath dress, loose or belted. When it comes to accessories, less is more. For a casual daytime look, add a few bangles instead of a belt. For a date night look, cinch your waist with a belt and add a clutch. Watch out, Warner: pink is back!
