As the fall semester is starting, I am meeting more and more college students around St. Louis. I met Danielle walking out of my apartment building and found out she also goes to Webster University. I always find myself meeting new Webster students every semester and Danielle is one of the most stylish students I've met.
I adore Danielle's vintage style because it is so similar to my own. Vintage clothes are making a comeback in today's fashion world and college students are the trendsetters bringing them back.

Elements of Danielle's Outfit
1. Red Lips
A swipe of red lipstick is essential for any girl who loves vintage style. Even if you aren't a fan of vintage looks, bold red lips add sass to any outfit and Danielle "never leaves home without 'em".
2. Vintage Pattern
Vintage patterns are fun, eclectic, and eye-catching. Danielle's adorable red dress featured a quirky flamingo print. Talk about unique! She let the dress be the star of her look by wisely pairing it with understated accessories and neutral shoes.
