Let's Talk Fashion

Who or what inspires your style? “I really like '80s fashion. The jean jackets and high-waisted pants look great with any outfit and are easy to mix-and-match. I love stripes and polka dots as a pattern, and I always try to incorporate those into my everyday look.”

Where do you like to shop? “I love shopping at places like H&M, Forever 21, and T.J. Maxx. I’m always sure that I’ll get a great look for a great deal at those stores.”

How would you describe your sense of style? “My style ranges anywhere from dramatic to vintage to sporty. It always depends on my mood or the weather.”

Why did you choose this particular outfit? “Today I was looking to enjoy the warmer weather and celebrate it by wearing something strapless. I needed a cover-up in case it got windy and decided to wear the jean jacket. Since I like standing tall and confident, I chose my high heeled Timberlands to pull the outfit together. 

What fashion advice would you give to other students looking to improve their style? “I would suggest a bright color as either a pant or a top. Building around that color makes choosing a bomb outfit easy. Also, accessories are everything.”

What are your favorite trends right now? “One of my favorite trends [is] the paperboy and driver hats that are making a comeback. I see them in almost every store I visit.”

Do you have any favorite fashion designers? If so who? “I love Tommy Hilfiger! I especially like how diverse and inclusive his advertisements are for the disabled and others.”

What do you do for fun - do you have any unique hobbies or interests? “I like to shop, play tennis, kayak, and so much more. Taking photographs of my friends is amongst my favorite activities.”

If you could raid anyone's closet who would it be & why? “I would probably raid Jennifer Lawrence’s closet. She’s always dressing in modern, minimalist-type clothes. She wears geometric designs that totally look chic! I love her style.” 

Elements of Laurel's Outfit

1. Jumpsuit

Patterned jumpsuit

Regardless of your body shape, there is a jumpsuit that will look amazing on you. Laurel chose a wide-leg cropped strapless style which is ultra casual, perfect for a spring day. The black, grey, and red stripes are actually tiny geometric patterns, giving this jumpsuit a bohemian flavor.

2. Denim Jacket

Laurel sports a distressed denim jacket with a shearling fur lining.

With the changing weather, it’s hard to know how warm it’ll stay throughout the course of the day. Laurel’s shearling-lined jacket is a great fit for a day like today. As she admits, denim jackets are one of her favorite styles and this is her go-to version.

3. Boots

It's no secret that Timberland is known for their boots. But what you may not know is that they don't just sell work boots, they also have fashionable heeled versions. Laurel has the cutest all-black lace up pair which are durable, comfortable, and match just about everything.
