Looks on Campus Marisa

Marisa, our college street style fashionista of the week

While walking to get my Starbucks fix, I ran into Miami fashionista, Marisa. Her classic, effortless style caught my eye, so I had to take a break from my coffee to ask her all about it! The combination of a button-down with jeans is a really great juxtaposition of a dressier item with something casual. Also, I loved her loafers, which were a perfectly chic choice on an unusually chilly Miami day!

Elements of Marisa’s Outfit:

1. Classic belt and a statement watch

Marisa's Belt

I love how Marisa’s belt and accessories add interest to her classic look. The watch is functional, as well as fashionable, and allows Marisa to keep track of the time on a busy day!

2. Loafers

Marisa's Loafers

I feel that these loafers make the outfit. I love the “old man” look, not to mention they look super comfortable. I would love to wear these for a dash of comfort and style when I have to trek around campus.

Outfit 1

I chose this outfit using Marisa’s look as a model. This outfit would be great for class or running errands because it is comfortable while still looking put-together. I would love to wear this to my next exam because it's more chic than sweatpants and looks just as comfy.

Outfit 2

I wanted to use Marisa’s style as an influence for a spring look. The ruffles and lavender flats add a sweet touch and I think the orange belt would make the outfit pop. I also played with different textures here such as ruffles in the pink top and colorblocked beads in the necklace.
