College Fashionista Internship

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

In the midst of dead week preparing for finals, I received some exciting news. I have been chosen as the Style Guru for UNL through CollegeFashionista. I am very eager and excited to be working with CollegeFashionista and I will be sure to keep you all up to date with what is to come, so stay posted! Below is my mock trial for the internship featuring my friend and fellow blogger, Libby Lemke.

FUR, FLORAL, FASHIONISTA O MY! Nebraskan fashionista, Libby Lemke, was spotted wearing three of the biggest trends this season: faux fur, floral pants, and chambray. 
CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing?
Libby Lemke: A chambray button up from J-Crew, floral pants and brown booties from target, and a faux fur vest.
CF: What are your favorite trends this season?
LL: My favorite trends are embellished collars, combat boots, loafers, and denim shirts.
CF: Who or what inspires your style?
LL: There really isn’t a specific person; I just like classic layering pieces that are very versatile so I can mix with different things in my wardrobe.
CF: Being in sorority, there are many socials, what is your go to look for a formal?
LL: I like to go with a simple dress then really glam it up with bold statement accessories.
CF: What is your one fashion item you can’t live with out? 
LL: Right now it would have to be my denim button down from J-Crew, I wear it all the time!
How To: One would think that the combination of faux fur, floral pants, and chambray all sound a bit too distracting to wear all together. It may even sound like your classic over-accessorizing dilemma. But ladies, it is possible to put these big trends together in a chic and effortless way without looking like you’re trying too hard to be the next Carrie Bradshaw. Now, I’m not saying it’s an easy task, but once you master the technique of blending, you can be bolder in your fashion endeavors too. It’s fun and feminine to dress up your floral pants with other prints and textures. Adding a fur vest is the perfect way to add texture and dress it up. The chambray jacket underneath is simple enough to allow you to add the fur vest; it gives you a more effortless look, like a white tee would similarly do. Pair your ensemble with some ankle booties and voila, you’ve become a fashionista!
