What I really love about fashion is how it references different time periods especially since we are in the year 2010. A lot of the looks people are sporting now are trends and styles that were popular almost twenty years ago. However, they have been changed a bit to make them look a little more modern. For example, Mary Quant created the mini skirt in the 1960's and it's a style many people are aware of. The dark skinny jeans Audrey Hepburn made popular continue to be a long lasting staple in everyones wardrobe. This week's CollegeFashionista is sporting a vintage look that can mostly be attained by thrift store shopping, which is an excellent and creative way to complete a look. She is wearing a loose blouse with a ruffled collar and sleeves that are slightly ruffled as well. She also wears a high waisted denim skirt with little tan flats and a messenger style crossbody purse. Her look can be atttained in a few different ways. This shirt from Urban Outfitters can be worn with a high waisted skirt like this one or tucked into high waisted denim shorts.
