STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Effortlessly Casual

Being a fall 2010 Style Guru for CollegeFashionista means one thing to me – finding outfits that will inspire you. I want to find outfits that evoke a memory or take you some place new. Perhaps an outfit can take you to the red light district of Amsterdam, (that'd be more of a tough Fashionista) ,or the side streets in Madrid ,(a classic printed maxi dress). Perhaps an outfit can remind you of your first kiss, your Sunday family dinner or that cheetah print comforter you had in your dorm room freshman year. But I also want to find outfits that you can wear on a daily basis – to your class, to your internship. With school starting in a less than a month and the weather becoming increasingly dreary, I believe it's a true Fashionista who dares to wear bright colors, especially with her equally gorgeous, bright red hair.

This look is a classic look, something so effortlessly chic that it doesn't surprise me when she introduces herself with an accent. In fact, she is from the fashion capital of the world, Paris. Accenting her look is a bold gold necklace and thick round gold earrings. I'm a firm believer that jewelry, especially earrings, take your look to the next level, (considering I have seven piercings just in my ears). I found a new set I'd love to have.

While her whole outfit is perfect for a comfortable yet stylish day in class, it's her casually wrapped scarf that adds a new dimension. This Fashionista actually stole it from her boyfriend's closet. The scarf is part of a men's only designer collection, Celio, based in Paris. Now I have a new designer to stalk, as I love the color and the frayed edges.

Fashionistas, I truly believe in fashion, but I also believe in comfort, something this Parisian young lady has combined beautifully. This outfit is versatile: work, play and school, but also represents her personal style and a certain "je ne sais quoi."
