FASHIONISTA SPOTLIGHT: Tori Balkin

In the fall we saw jeans in rich, dark shades, but spring is all about wearing colors representative of the flowers that are beginning to bloom. Sorbet and citrus colors are a great, fresh way to add sophisticated color into any outfit. I saw this Fashionista on her way to an afternoon class. Her tangerine jeans are the perfect pop of spring color. Paired with a beige, cropped Brandy Melville crochet sweater creates an effortless look, while her TOMS keep the outfit cohesive and laid back. This fun play on colors is one trend that is most definitely ripe for the taking!

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

Tori Balkin: I love anything that has to do with shoes, whether it’s a good pair of flats or sandals.

CF: Where do you find your style inspiration?

TB: I find a lot of my inspiration from J.Crew! I love the clothes they have and the way they style them.

CF: What is your favorite color to wear?

TB: I love to wear bright, springy colors. I really just like to wear colors that make me stand out.

How To: Adding this fun element into your outfit is easy! Instead of choosing a pair of jeans in the bold colors that were popular in the fall, opting for a pair that has a bright, while more subtle, sorbet hue is a great place to start. Since this is the focus piece of your outfit, keep everything else simple to create a cool, relaxed vibe. Choosing a neutral, muted top and shoes let the jeans really pop. This also makes the outfit more sophisticated since it won't be busy or overwhelming. Top it off with some delicate jewelery and sunnies and you're set!
