Though the weather was rainy and the sun was nowhere to be found, this Fashionista's sunny disposition (and dress) brightened my day up. Her hot-pink frock commanded attention as she strutted her stuff across campus in her sunshine-colored wedges. Another “wow” factor was this Fashionista's gray leather bomber. Her jacket fit perfectly, with gold accented zippers and detailed bunching at the sleeves and waistline. This Fashionista's golden wedges adorned with leather bows were the perfect height for walking (on sunshine) around Duke's campus. I loved this entire look, but my favorite thing about this Fashionista's outfit was her jewelry. Her magenta square bangle and gold-studded wooden bangle added an extra element of surprise and individuality to her ensemble. This week's Fashionista's personality was just as bubbly (if not more) than the outfit she wore, learn more about her below!
Name: Victoria Young
Major: English, Political Science Minor
CollegeFashionista: What inspired your look today?
Victoria Young: Though it was raining, I wanted to still wear something fun, but simple. So, the dress was super easy to throw on and accessorize. Because it is simple, throwing on a motorcycle jacket and colorful bangles help to liven it up.
CF: Where are your favorite places to shop on a college student's budget?
Victoria Young: H&M, Macy's, Forever 21…I'm from Memphis, so there are many affordable boutiques that target college students.
CF: What is your favorite fall must-have?
Victoria Young: My favorite fall must-have would be my bomber jacket. You can throw it on with just about anything and give it a funky look, effortlessly.
How To: As fall comes and the seasons change a lot of people store away their bright colors and resort to the bland life of neutrals. Here's how to take this bright look right into autumn. Take a bright dress, like this pink floral jersey-knit dress from OldNavy.com and dress it for the crisp, fall weather by adding a few elements. Find a great-leather jacket, which is a fall must-have according to this week's Fashionista, like this taupe leather bomber (with a great price tag) featured on UrbanOutfitters.com. Next add a chunky-knit infinity scarf, like this Oceanic Popcorn-Knit Infinity Knit Scarf from OldNavy.com. Add texture to your outfit and cold-weather protection for your gams with a pair of funky tights, like these black hue, zigzag net tights featured on Nordstrom.com. Finish your outfit with a pair of sunflower-hued pumps, like UO Suede pumps featured on UrbanOutfitters.com.
