Stephanie Cartagena, a senior majoring in political science

This fashionista has a love for Spanish retail giants Zara and Mango. Her Mango bag and Zara boots are great accessories that complement her chic, neutral black and white top. Cartagena confesses she wears a lot of neutrals, which are perfect for this season where the colors of black, white, beige and light grey are prevalent. She describes her style as casual and put together. Her hat and studded, over-sized bag give her an edgy look. Her pants are from Urban Outfitters, one of her favorite places to shop, and her fashion idol is Coco Chanel, a classic pick for a classy Fashionista!

Kwang Jin Lim, a freshman majoring in international affairs

I love the pink accents in this Fashionisto’s outfit. Dressed in all black and white, Lim’s pink earphones and iPod make the outfit really pop. Earphones are one of the hottest fashion accessories this season and a fabulous pair like this will score major points with any fashion critic. His H&M pants are also a great classic, smartly highlighted by his multi-colored, checkered Vans. His long knitted black vest thrown over a simple shirt adds an unusual and interesting look to his otherwise casual outfit.

Kadie Ross, a sophomore majoring in history

Clad in clothing perfect for the rainy weather, this Fashionista exemplifies how to beat the weather and still look fashionable. My favorite part of her outfit is her lime green Burberry trench coat. The color itself is enough to brighten up any outfit. The laid-back Urban Outfitters jeans and Barneys Co-op boots are a sharp and interesting contrast to her delicate read beaded necklace and men’s J. Crew button up shirt. Ross says her style is influenced by the years she spent in Europe when she was young, mentioning that she is also interested in men’s fashion “because it’s comfortable.” Her favorite spring trends are camouflage and neutral colors.
