Stephens College fashionista


Jennifer was looking ready for spring as she stepped out to shop on the first sunny day the south has seen in weeks. She caught my eye because her outfit was so fresh and put-together. Her look is clean, confident, and simple, a combination that any college girl should be able to pull off with ease.

Elements of Jennifer’s Look

Nautical Stripes

Jennifer told me she loves spring, because every year she gets to break out her stripes. “I love how this trend comes back every year. It means I’ll always be stylish!” And Jennifer is right about that: the nautical trend is a perennial spring favorite. And it's easy to see why; it's a look that is easy to pull off and works on almost everyone, no matter your personal style or aesthetic.

Color Matching

Jennifer told me she always tries to look put together, so she tries to match her accessories well. It may be an old rule, and no, it shouldn’t always be followed, but you have to admit it looks great on her!

Looks Inspired by Jennifer

The first look inspired by Jennifer is simple and preppy, just like her style. I loved how she matched her green shoes to her green purse, so I did the same here with a cute pair of sandals and a matching tote. Using a floral skirt instead of a striped one makes the look less nautical and more springy.

The second look is for those of you who aren’t afraid to dive head first into the nautical trend. The baggy t-shirt makes this look more trendy than preppy, and the bright red shorts make this look show-stopping!
