I was lucky to run into this week’s Fashionista on her way to class. Sophia’s outfit evokes sophistication and confidence, even at eight o’clock in the morning! As a girl on the go, Sophia values the simplicity of classic looks, but she is always sure to let her personal style shine through.
Name: Sophia Luby
Major: Political Science/Spanish
CollegeFashionista: How would you best describe your style?
Sophia Luby: My style is classic and preppy. I love wearing cardigans and blazers in the winter and bright sundresses in the summer!
CF: Who do you turn to for style inspiration?
SL: My mom! She has a very iconic style, she has a lot of vintage pieces that will always be beautiful. She has taught me how to add a little bit of flair to an understated and classic look.
CF: When you oversleep and only have a few minutes to get ready for class, what is your go-to outfit?
SL: Skinny Jeans, v-neck t-shirt and a J.Crew cardigan. It’s quick, easy and cute!
CF: Do you have an ultimate splurge item that you wish you had in your closet?
SL: I’m looking for a great pair of red heels.
How To: What is so great about Sophia’s style is that the key pieces in her wardrobe are timeless and will never be out of trend. To achieve this look, it is important to have several staples serve as the foundation of your outfit. Taking a note from Sophia, a classic navy blazer paired with a great pair of leather boots is a look that can never go wrong. Once you have these key pieces, it’s all about mixing and matching to add your personal flair. Under her blazer, she is wearing a delicate white lace top that makes her outfit look modern and youthful. And of course, accessories allow you to take your outfit to the next level. Sophia sports her funky tortoise shell frames which lets her personality shine through, but you could also add a wrist full of bright bangles or a bag in a vibrant hue.
