Looks on Campus: Annelise – Rhode Island School of Design

3 Comments

I was hanging out with one of my good friends at RISD when she introduced me to her roommate, Annelise. I was immediately struck by her cool style. She rocked some awesome pink hair and had a fantastic sense of style to match!

Let’s Talk Fashion

What inspires your style? “Painting probably. Color. Composition. I look at fashion magazines occasionally. Maybe like twice a year I’ll look at that stuff. I’ve basically just had the same wardrobe I’ve worn for a long time. [I] have a wardrobe that all goes together. I still like the same things.”

What inspired you to wear this outfit? “I like crazy patterns. That’s what I paint – patterns and jarring colors right next to each other.”

What are your favorite fashion trends? “Definitely the shiny fabrics, pastels. Bright, airy, glimmering things.”

How would you describe your style? “I’ve been told c-punk [cyber punk]. I don’t think I am though. I’ve looked it up, and I don’t think I fit that. I don’t know what my style is. It’s like New York and Southern California put together. Like beach and black pants. ‘Urban beach?’ Does that make sense?”

What are your favorite stores?Free People and Anthropologie, but that’s like way too expensive. TJ Maxx primarily. This shirt is from Savers. These pants were $10 from H&M, and these shoes were from Anthropologie, but on sale. I never shop online though. Shopping online sucks.”

What advice would you give to people looking to improve their style? “Oh gosh, I don’t really think about it. I guess I would think about proportions. Like, your feet can’t look too big by having bright colors. Dark pants that fit you and come to your waist are a good wardrobe staple. Pick your patterns!”

Elements of Annelise’s Outfit

1. Pink Hair

One of the first things you notice about Annelise’s look are her rockstar pink locks. Dip-dyed, candy-colored hair is in this season, and it’s perfect for spring. Bubblegum pink is a hue for the bold and adventurous; it’s fun, flirty, and definitely an attention-grabber.

2. Loafers

Annelise’s pointy-toe loafers add an awesome pop of color, texture and print, and perfectly showcases her quirky sense of style. The bright red keeps the rest of her outfit from looking too monochromatic, plus the color contrasts nicely with her pink hair.

3. Bag

This is a really fab go-to bag. Annelise’s classic black handbag is ideal for lugging around a couple of notebooks and some art supplies. The crossover strap adds comfort and keeps the look casual, and I love that she also has the option to use the shorter shoulder strap.

    Loafers and hair are wonderful. But the pants are great! Love the Bagdad fit around the ankles…and that they wrap around to the mid sole of the foot is a quirky, fun twist.
    Great article!

    Great style and awesome to see another Annelise like me! Just wanted to point out that her name is spelled both “Annelise” and “Annalise” in this article so you may want to correct it. As an Annelise who consistently has my name spelled wrong in all manner of personal and professional settings, I know how great it feels when someone makes the effort to ensure it is spelled correctly :)
