I spotted Crystal on my way to the library one breezy afternoon. Her bright red-orange pants and cool nautical top looked so bright and cheery in the Los Angeles afternoon sunshine – I knew I had to snag her to talk fashion with us!

Elements of Crystal’s Outfit
1. Bright Denim and Striped Sweater
I love the way Crystal styled her bright red-orange jeans. Colored denim is popular right now, but some of the bold colors can be hard to wear. That’s why I admire Crystal’s simple take on them – by pairing her bright jeans with a neutral navy sweater, she makes them look cool and chic, not clownish. And that’s not to mention that nautical sweaters like hers are perfect for spring!
2. T-Strap Flats
Crystal’s T-strap black flats made her look fashion-forward, while still allowing her to be comfortable and on the go! They also showcase her sweet, friendly, and girly personality.
3. Simple Jewelry
Crystal’s pendant not only allows her to display her personal commitment to her faith, but also complements her orange pants beautifully with a touch of gold. She is wearing just the right amount of sparkle, which allows her fun tangerine pants to remain the focus of her outfit.
