This Roanoke Fashionista proves that true style can be simple. I spoke with her about personal style, which celebrity closet she would raid and her predictions for upcoming spring trends.

Name: Elizabeth (Lily) Geiger

Major: Art History

Year: Senior

CollegeFashionista: What aspects of your daily life most influence your sense of style?

Lily Geiger: I’m always on the go, so I like easy things that are comfortable and still have stylistic appeal.

CF: What is your favorite piece of clothing that you own, and why?

LG: I’m a big fan of AG jeans. They fit great and come in a number of colors. I wear this black pair constantly. However, my most coveted possession is my Hermes bracelet, a gift from my dad that I cherish. Plus, who doesn't love a pop of color?

CF: If you could steal any celebrity's closet, whose would it be?

LG: Sort of silly, but I think Kate Middleton has timeless style. I also think it's nice to see her recycle items from her closest in different ways, it shows that she is wardrobe conscious and wears things more than twice.

CF: What spring trends do you think we can expect to see?

LG: For spring, I think there will be a lot of mixing different colors and fabrics. Apparel and accessories in stores now have the potential to span different seasons, so it will be interesting to see how people use specific pieces in other outfits.

How to: Lily’s look is comfortable and casual. The simple long sleeve T-shirt and black jeans are brought together with more formal booties and a fur vest. This outfit is truly versatile and perfect for class, work, or even a fun dinner with friends. Nothing is more comfortable than a light weight long sleeve T-shirt. Gap and J.Crew have super soft and cozy options. Lily’s black AG straight-leg jeans are extremely flattering and slimming. If you prefer a less expensive alternative, check out brands H&M or Express. Fur vests seem to be the accessory of the season. Now more than ever, you can find high quality faux fur vests at inexpensive costs, like the Jack by B.B. Dakota vest that Lily is sporting. Finally, the adorable booties that Lily is rocking give an added sense of glamour to her outfit. Lily’s booties are from J.Crew, you can find other styles and alternate prices at Piperlime.
