FASHIONISTA SPOTLIGHT: Irene Nunez | College Fashionista

Right before heading off to my last class of the day, I spotted this Fashionista wearing the perfect summer to fall transition outfit. Her circle skirt and chambray tie-front shirt are perfect summer staples. These pieces, paired with a cardigan and patterned scarf and tights are a great way to incorporate your summer clothing items into your winter wardrobe.

Name: Irene Nunez

Major: Criminal Justice and Sociology

Year: Senior

CollegeFashionista: What do your daily outfits consist of?

Irene Nunez: I work at a law firm so I dress formal. The outfits are kind of boring but I try to make it more lively with accessories. For school I usually wear what I’m wearing now. I try not to dress too fancy but not too dressed down. When I go out I like to wear wedges, specifically.

CollegeFashionista: Who inspires your style?

IN: Zooey Deschanel. She’s really quirky, dresses really cute and I like her personality. I also like Lady Gaga. She’s bold and doesn’t care what people think.

CF: What do you never leave your house without?

IN: In the winter, it would be socks. I like to mix and match them so I’m never wearing the same ones. In the summer, it’s sunglasses.

CF: Do you have any favorite designers?

IN: I don’t really like designer clothes. Since I am a Sociology major, buying expensive name brand clothing goes against what I believe. I mostly shop at secondhand stores because they give back to the community by offering jobs to people out of prison or have been rehabilitated. I also like to shop at American Apparel because they support immigration and pay their employees really well.

How To: In order to transition your summer wardrobe into fall, begin with a circle skirt. American Apparel and Urban Outfitters have circle skirts in a variety of colors. Add a chambray tie-front shirt and cardigan to complete the basis of the outfit. A patterned scarf and tights are a great way to add personality to this outfit. Finish this look with a pair of oxfords and maybe even some mismatched socks. Also try adding pieces from your own summer wardrobe to incorporate into this great fall transition outfit.

Style On,
