If you were to ask students who has the best style at Hartwick College, Marel's name would surely come up. Her flirty and feminine style is something I always keep an eye out for when I walk around campus. Because of her fashion-forward reputation, I am happy to be able to share with you one of my favorite "Marel looks":

Elements of Marel's Outfit
1. Coral Dress with Lace Details
When I saw this dress in the commons, I couldn't take my eyes off of it! The color is beautiful and the lace adds a gorgeous finishing touch. After Marel told me the dress was from Paris, I instantly wished I had one, too.
2. Brown Leather Sandals
When it comes to summer style, sundresses and leather sandals go hand in hand. Not only do Marel's brown leather sandals pair perfectly with her look, but these shoes would work for so many other warm weather ensembles.
3. Naturally Wavy Hair & Beaded Necklace
Once the warm weather comes out, it's time to let down your hair and go natural. Marel's natural beachy waves capture the carefree essence of summer. They also help draw the eye to her beaded statement necklace.
