Looks on Campus: Chelsea – BYU


I first noticed Chelsea because of her fantastic hair, but when I spotted her on campus again last week, I soon realized that her style is just as free and fun as her ombre locks. Her outfit fits perfectly with the fall foliage and keeps her comfortable in Utah’s variable November weather.

Name: Chelsea

College: Brigham Young University

Let’s Talk Fashion

How would you describe your style? “Comfortable, that’s my top one. Classy, for sure. Sophisticated. And a little urban.”

Who is your style icon? “I love Lauren Conrad. I think she has fabulous, fabulous style.”

Where do you like to shop? “My favorite stores are Anthropologie, LOFT, J.Crew and Urban Oufitters.”

What advice would you give to other students trying to define their own style? “Being a student, I’m all about getting good deals. Just finding a store you really like, and being smart about what you get. For me, I like to pick just one thing I love. Just finding that one piece — looking around and making sure you’re really getting something that you’ll wear.”

What trends do you feel are distinctly you“I’m all about prints, and pairing prints with prints.”

What are your hobbies? “I love to read and I like to swim. And with my major, I do a lot of volunteering with special needs people. I do something called Respite— it’s really what makes me happiest.”

Elements of Chelsea’s Outfit

1. Mustard Jacket

Denim jackets have been popping up everywhere lately, and Chelsea’s mustard-colored one is a fun spin on the trend. The color complements her ombre hair and blends in perfectly with the warm tones of fall.

2. Leather Bag

Against her purple polka dot pants, Chelsea’s bag makes a great statement. Big enough to hold what she needs, but small enough to carry around, it’s the perfect school accessory. It’s functional for daytime activities, and the leather  is chic enough to tote around at night.

3. Studded Sandals

These studded sandals are a great way to hold onto the last few sunny days of fall. (It was in the mid 60s when this photo was taken.) The small wooden heel and metal detailing are interesting additions that make Chelsea’s pair unique.

Your Thoughts?

    You should have done a zoomed in photo of her accessories- I LOVE the fact that she’s combined burgundy & mustard with bright aqua blue! I wanted to wear a similar outfit the other day (but with grey mixed in too) & was worried I’d look too weird to pull it off- but I’m glad to see this colour scheme on someone else! :D

    Not feeling the pants…i’m sorry, but they look too much like PJs to me. Other than that, I like her look though and i’m jealous she gets to wear sandals (its FREEZING where I live!)

    I like that you’re dressed up, without looking like you’re trying to hard. Super cute!

    I envy her hair. So gorgeous. I love the colors of this outfit. Not colors you would think to put together, but they look really good together.

    When I saw this post, I did a double-take… I bought that mustard jacket this summer from Anthro and those exact pants from LOFT a week or two ago! Girl has great taste. ;)
